Golden State Fur Con 2020 - Official Cancellation Notice
June 7th, 2020
We would like to take time to discuss and acknowledge the concerns you may have regarding COVID-19 and the impact on Golden State Fur Con 2020. We want to provide transparency and provide answers to your questions regarding the various aspects of the plan going forward. First, we believe in the Fandom and our Attendees and have things put in place to make the transition to next year as seamless as possible.
As you may know, we had decided to postpone the convention due to the COVID-19 outbreak initially back in April of 2020 to have the convention scheduled for upcoming August 28th-30th, 2020. We have worked with both the hotel and local government and have been constantly monitoring the news and CDC releases and have decided to cancel the convention instead of the original postponement dates of August 28th-30th. We believe in the safety and well-being of every single attendee.
The new dates for Golden State Fur Con are April 9th-11th, 2021.
Question: What about my registration?
Our team believes in giving you the most flexibility regarding your registration for the new dates. Our team will migrate your current registration to GSFC automatically. If you are not able to attend GSFC 2021, you may opt to have your registration refunded. The deadline for requesting a refund is July 15th, 2020.
Question: I'm a Dealer, how does this affect me?
As a dealer, we understand how hard it is to move things around and adjust your schedules as many of you work multiple conventions and/or have a day job. Much like registration, our team will automatically
move your registration to the new dates for GSFC 2021. This also extends to your table and your assistant badges. We will be reaching out to all dealers in the coming days.
Question: What about Hotel rooms?
Unfortunately, at this time, our situation with the room block will require you to cancel your current room and rebook using the new link which will be available at a later time. This is due in part to the LAX Hilton not having the software capacity to migrate our room block. We understand the frustration that this may cause and are willing to help with any problems or concerns you may have.
Question: What about flights?
Many flights are offering options to change or modify your flight. This can be done through their respective website or by calling their customer service. We have a listed their contact information below for you to reference in order to change, cancel or update your fight.
Question: So why the new dates?
We have listened to your feedback regarding dates and looked at all available options for the convention and have decided that the best choice was to cancel 2020 altogether. We understand that there may be
some frustration due to the shift of dates and we will do our best to assist you as best we can. We thank you in advance for your patience in response to any questions regarding the convention, transfers, or refunds from this transition.
Again, we are thankful to everyone and their support through this situation and being patient while we gathered the necessary information from news outlets and the hotel. We would like to thank our hotel, the Hilton LAX, for working with us on this situation and accommodating our new dates to still bring you GSFC 2021.
From our team and family, thank you for your continued support in these unprecedented times.
The Corgi Events Board.
