A Statement from UFOCon Organizers
Each time the UFOCon team works their hardest to do right by the fans that come together in Orlando. We want to create a space for you to gather, be yourselves and make memories with those who matter to you most. We have been closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 virus, particularly with the State of Emergency issued in Florida, and, after many hours of conversation internally and consultation with local government officials and the tourism bureau, we have decided to move UFOCon to another 2020 or 2021 with date and detail announcement forthcoming.
We did everything that we could to run the event as planned, but ultimately, we are following the guidance of the local public health officials indicating that conventions should now be postponed.
Our hearts go out to the entire community, everyone impacted by the COVID-19 virus, and all of you, the numerous fans to this event each year. Our team was incredibly excited to see you at UFOCon, however, fans, speakers, exhibitors and the rest of the community are what make BMK Publishing events so special and it is our duty to make sure that your safety comes first.
To all of our fans – you will receive a refund on your tickets, no further action is needed on your part. Due to the volume, we expect you will receive your refund in 30 days. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
BMK Publishing remains determined and committed to running future UFOCon events and we are working to secure alternate dates. As we explore options for new dates, please know that our priority is to bring you an equally amazing event. We appreciate all the messages that we have received over the course of the past week. The feedback was invaluable in helping us determine next steps.
Stay tuned to our website and social channels for additional information about when we will next see you in Orlando.
