Wonder Festival Cancelled


Event goers will be unhappy to note that the next Wonder Festival, one of the top anime hobby events, has had its next opening cancelled completely. This means there will be no Wonder Festival 2009 Winter at all, though it is thought that future events will go ahead normally.

The event had already been postponed, so it is not a complete surprise. As you might guess, the events of the latest Disaster Festival are the main cause.

Investigations into the escalator accident which severely injured a number of event goers are apparently ongoing, and these disrupted the application and preparation period to such an extent that the organisers were no longer capable of scheduling the event properly for the Winter timeframe.

With luck the next scheduled event will go ahead as planned. For their part, the organisers apologise deeply to all affected.

It seems other Big Sight users are completely unaffected by this.
