THANK YOU FROM THE STAFF OF HEROES AREN’T HARD TO FIND

November 11, 2021 By: Karla Southern Category: Charlotte Minicon, DISCUSS, EVENTS, Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con, Heroes Aren't Hard To Find, HeroesCon, HeroesCon News, Looking Ahead, NEWS, Now Read This!, Reviews

To All Our Guests, Exhibitors, Attendees, Volunteers and Staff

THANK-YOU

The first ever Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con is over and a part of history!

Everyone at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find wishes to extend our appreciation to all those who participated in the Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con!

Thank You to our Guests for making the Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con a part of your schedule. As creators, you add life, excitement, and fun to the Convention. It was great to see long time Heroes Convention guests as well as those of you who are just beginning to make the Heroes experience a part of your lives.  We look forward to seeing you back at the Heroes Convention in June!
 
Thank You to all the Exhibitors for taking the chance and coming to our first major event back at the Charlotte Convention Center (CCC). We hope you had a fun and profitable time. Without the vendors it wouldn’t be the comic show that we all know and love.

To all the Attendees who came despite continuing health concerns about attending a large public event, we appreciate you being a part of the con. We were very happy to see so many of our regular convention attendees back and enjoying a comic book show. 

Special thanks to all the Kibby’s Sidekicks Volunteers who made everyone’s job a lot easier (there are too many of you to name, and we don’t want to risk missing anyone). “Many hands make light work”. Your willingness to step up wherever and however you were needed greatly contributed to the success of the Giant-Size Charlotte Mini-Con. We look forward to you continuing our dear friend Charles Kibby’s legacy of volunteering at future Heroes Conventions and events.

We look forward to everyone returning (and inviting all your friends) to be a part of the Fantastic 40th Heroes Convention Anniversary Celebration, June 24-26, 2022.

Order your Heroes Convention tickets now, and we’ll see you there!!

HC2020-UPDATE

June 2022 will mark the 40th Anniversary of the Heroes Convention!

You know that after TWO YEARS of pandemic handcuffs, we will pull out ALL THE STOPS and make HeroesCon 2022 one FOR THE AGES!

“A June bug flew from the warmth he once knew,
And I wished for once I weren’t right,
Why we used to laugh together,
And we’d dance to any old song,”
From “Far From Me” by John Prine

The past several months have seen us all stuck in LIMBO, quietly watching COVID-19 numbers rise and fall as restrictions fluctuate across the country, never knowing what the next month might hold.

It is after careful consideration for the HEALTH and SAFETY of EVERYONE, we have made the decision to FAST FORWARD directly to HeroesCon 2022.

ALL 2020/2021 HeroesCon Tickets, Artist Alley Tables and Exhibitor Booth Reservations will automatically transfer to the 2022 Heroes Convention at this time.
We hope that you will continue to support us as we begin planning our 40th Anniversary show.

HeroesCon 2022 Hotel Rates will be made available as soon as 2022 show dates have been finalized.

We are currently looking at the possibility of holding a much smaller convention in the fall, but we know that a smaller show is no substitute for the Heroes Convention.
Details of this show are tentative at this time, with announcements to follow as soon as possible. HOWEVER, if you have purchased a 2020 or 2021 3-Day Pass for the Heroes Convention, your ticket will get you into this smaller show, as well as the 2022 Heroes Convention.

 

Please know that we have not made this decision lightly.

After what has felt like an eternity of uncertainty, we are hopeful that there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are being distributed on a wide spectrum and we are slowly starting to see the promise of a return to “normal” in the months ahead.

However, even with the increased numbers of vaccinations, we understand that it may not be safe to hold an indoor gathering of thousands of people, even three months from now; especially when you consider that the vast majority of our guests travel from across the country, or even from across the globe.

We PRIDE ourselves on the wealth of talent that fills our Artist Alley each year.

At the beginning of March we sent out a poll to over 300 Featured Guests from recent and past Heroes Conventions. Of the 200+ responses we have received, 95% of those have stated that they would not feel comfortable attending a show in June of 2021, with most adding that they would prefer to wait until 2022 to attend a convention.

This, coupled with feedback from customers and exhibitors, has informed us that June 2021 is still too soon for most to feel safe attending a convention on the scale of the HeroesCon. We have taken all of these concerns very seriously, and agree that the health of EVERYONE is the MOST IMPORTANT factor going forward.

Other extenuating circumstances that have influenced our decision at this time: the Charlotte Convention Center will be undergoing construction that could impact our floor plan as well as the use of escalators. As of today, enforced capacity restrictions will remain in effect until fall of 2021, with limited on-site concessions, and sustained social distancing requirements between individuals as well as between tables and booths.

Under these circumstances it just wouldn’t be a HeroesCon.

 

“Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle,
Looks just like a diamond ring,
But it’s far, far from me.”
From “Far From Me” by John Prine 1971
