As you can probably imagine, following on from the decision to postpone MinamiCon 2021 due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the committee has been grappling with the question of if and how we can run MinamiCon in 2022 in a manner that makes it safe for our attendees and staff whilst still retaining as much of what makes MinamiCon special.
Whilst the pandemic has proven more than capable of derailing even the best-made plans, we have come to the conclusion that assuming there isn’t a significant change in circumstances, MinamiCon will be able to go ahead in 2022 with measures in place to safeguard everyone involved in the event.
Specifically, key measures we are taking include:
We realise it may be a disappointment that we cannot go ahead with the event entirely as usual - please understand that our options are limited here and we are trying to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy the event safely.
In the event you are unfortunately unable to attend due to a positive Covid test, we will make sure you still get your con pack and badge by post after the event. An opportunity for advance registration for next year at a discount - the exact level will be determined after the event. Please understand that whilst we are aiming to make this as fair as possible for anyone caught out by circumstances outside their control, we cannot make a definitive decision until after the con.
We should also note here that we will be monitoring the situation closely, and this list may be updated in light of forthcoming official advice or other developments. In that case we will be contacting all registered members by email, as well as posting announcements to our webpage and social media.
Whilst we would very much like to see everyone at the event, we understand completely that there may be those who either cannot or would prefer not to attend under these conditions - we will be more than happy to offer a full refund to anyone who finds themselves in this situation.
