Kaizoku Con- Cancelled
April 3 - April 5
Firstly, I’d like to say thank you all for being so patient recently with regards to news about the convention. We’re aware that the current pandemic has led to concerns about the state of Kaizoku-Con and how things will proceed. As difficult as it is to announce, Kaizoku-Con 2020 is cancelled. This decision was incredibly difficult for all of us here on the committee, but given how the situation with Coronavirus and Covid-19 has evolved, we as a committee agreed that going ahead with the convention would pose a risk to attendees, staff, guests and any number of individuals attending the convention which is a risk that can’t be taken.
We understand this announcement may be confusing given our previous announcement earlier this week, but the situation has developed so rapidly in a few days with every indication pointing towards further spread of the virus that we had to re-evaluate the practicality and safety of running the event. The decision we’ve made reflects the fact that we believe we’d be unable to adequately prevent the transmission of the virus at the convention.
As many people have already bought pre-registration tickets, we’ll begin organising refunds, but ask for your patience during this time as there is many duties we have to undergo due to the cancellation of the event. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
As of right now, we have no intention of postponing the event as there’s no way to gauge how this pandemic will develop so we can’t make any guarantees, but keep an eye on our social medias for all Kaizoku-con-related news.
Finally, we here at Kaizoku-Con would like to thank you all for your continued support and encouragement; Kaizoku-Con wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you.
Mark your logs, and dust off your blunderbuss. We can’t wait to welcome ye on the deck of our great man-o-war on the
3rd-5th of April 2020!
Kaizoku-Con is an Anime, Sc-fi, and Gaming convention held in Cork every year – keep an eye on our social media and website for announcements!
