March 29, 2021 – The continuing global COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to once again make the difficult decision to postpone the 20th Anniversary Fetish Con™ trade show until August 11-14, 2022. We had hoped that by now, a year later, the effects of COVID-19, and its impact on being able to safely hold trade shows such as ours would have subsided. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Our main concern has been, and always will be, the health and safety of all of our attendees, and due to current circumstances, this is again something that unfortunately we cannot guarantee in 2021. We will also be issuing FULL REFUNDS for 2020 and 2021 for those who had already made payments to attend the trade show.
By issuing full refunds we want to reset and begin building the excitement for the 20th Anniversary show in 2022. We are already working on a few surprises that will see the show grow and we hope that everyone will be just as excited as we are when they are announced. The support of the fetish and adult community for the past twenty years has been and continues to be amazing and we thank you all for your understanding through these unprecedented times. We look forward to being able to celebrate with you all in 2022.
FULL REFUNDS OF ALL ACCESS PASSES / BOOTHS / SPONSORSHIPS – On the chronology of refunds: Full refunds of all tickets, booths, and sponsorships for the 2020 and 2021 trade show weekends will begin July 01, 2021. We will begin reaching out to vendors and talent directly, via email, starting in April 2021; there is no need to formally request a refund.
HOTEL ROOM CANCELLATIONS – If you have booked your room already at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel, your room reservation will be automatically cancelled. You do not need to contact the hotel. If you booked a room elsewhere, you will need to handle your own cancellation.
WEBSITE REDESIGN – The Fetish Con™ website will also be undergoing a complete overhaul during this time.
REGISTRATION FOR THE 2022 TRADE SHOW – All Access Passes, Exhibitor Booths, and Sponsorships for the 20th Anniversary Fetish Con™ trade show taking place on August 11-14, 2022 will be accepted beginning October 01, 2021.
We hope that everyone remains safe and healthy.
