Eurofurence, ConFuzzled announce merger
The merger made a lot of sense, as slippery convention spokesotter Tungro explained:
Running a convention involves a lot of logistics and expertise, as well as time and commitment. In order to reduce costs and overlap, it is in the interests of both conventions to pool resources together.
The UK and DE editions of EuroFuzzled will still be lead by Matt Lion and Cheetah respectively; however, art show panels, registration systems, badge printers, regualar guests, hired entertainers and gophers will be shared between the conventions.
The news goes some way towards explaining the recent notice of ConFuzzled's cancellation.
Update: A new announcement from ConFuzzled suggests the merger will not go ahead.
