Universal FanCon abruptly postponed, a week before planned debut in Baltimore, organizers say

A week before crowds of self-proclaimed proud geeks were scheduled to gather at Universal FanCon in the Baltimore Convention Center, organizers abruptly postponed the event.

Billed as the “first multi-fandom Con dedicated to inclusion, highlighting Women, LGBTQ, the Disabled and Persons of Color,” the event was supposed to run from April 27 to April 29.

But organizers announced Friday on Twitter they couldn’t secure enough financial backing to hold the convention. They said they hope to reschedule eventually and “put forward the type of event our fans deserve.”
