Bronycon Press Release
With the recent announcement from Hasbro, some restructuring is going on over at the next Bronycon. The new chair has a short press release for everyone to chew on while they plug some holes up and get everything rolling for this summer. Check that out after the break!
They also have openings on their artist alley for those of you looking for sell things. Hit up their website here for more information on that.
I'm Andrew (aka Zebranky), the new convention chair for BronyCon, and I'd like to introduce myself to the congoers and the community at large. I've been involved with this convention since the original event last June, and I started and still co-organize the Boston meetups. I came into the first BroNYCon looking to do whatever I could to make it run better, and I carry that same spirit into this position.
Carrying forward the momentum that Purple Tinker has set in motion, our event this summer is poised for incredible success. We have an enormous venue: the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey, just over the river from the heart of Manehattan. Our team has the skills and experience to do almost anything - I've loved working with them so far, and I'm beyond excited to see what we'll do between now and the end of June.
I want to take this opportunity to update everyone on the status of our Guests of Honor, Mrs. Lauren Faust and Mr. John de Lancie. Right now, Hasbro is developing their policy to help handle the volume of appearance requests that those involved with the show are receiving. At the same time, we're nailing down details with our announced guests. There's nothing to be concerned about right now - we have every reason to believe that this will go as planned, and that we'll be able to announce more special guests as we get closer to the con.
If you're just hearing (or remembering) about us now, check us out at www.bronycon.org. On behalf of everyone here, thank you for your continued interest and support, and we hope to see you this summer!

All the best,
