NEW DATE Sun 29 April 2018
Dear Rai-Con Attendees
After ‘snowmaggedon’ and the unfortunate, but unavoidable, cancellation of last week’s event; our team has been hard at work to find a new date that is within a reasonable amount of time and still allows us to use 100% of the venue that we had before.
The new date for Rai-Con Spring 2018 will be Sunday 29 April, 11am – 5pm for the day con, with the after party running from 7pm – 11pm. We realise it’s not the usual Saturday, but our options for dates were very limited as the venue books up 8 – 12 months in advance.
If you’ve already bought a ticket, it will still be valid and your ticket will be updated to reflect the new date.
If however you are no longer able to attend the event, please message us with the e-mail address or full name that your tickets were booked under and we will send you out a full refund.
Thank you for your patience and support during this time, it has been very stressful for our team here at Rai-Con and has not been without cost implications. However, we have done everything we can so as not to affect your enjoyment of the day or pass on any costs.
We hope you are able to join us for the new date and look forward to seeing you all at Rai-Con Spring V2.0!
Lots of love,
Rai-con spring 2018 to be rescheduled.
It is with great sadness that we must announce the cancellation of our event tomorrow (Sat 3rd March). We have been working non-stop over the past few days to try to ensure that the day went ahead as planned and have been keeping up to date with forecasts and travel news. Forecasts had looked to improve in time but unfortunately travel will prove difficult for many. Ultimately the safety and enjoyment of our attendees, guests and exhibitors is key and under current conditions we have been left with little choice but to reschedule the event.
- Rai-con Will be Rescheduled, and we will release a date as soon as we can.
- Your tickets for Rai Spring will be 100% valid for the rescheduled event
- Exhibitors tables will remain valid for the rescheduled event
- We’ll have a new date in place within the next week.
We will update people over the coming days with options for transferring tickets to the new event or options for refunds.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope people stay safe in the current weather that we are having.
