Other convention news

Armageddon: The announcement for the new dates of Armageddon Christchurch has been edited to clarify that the event will still go ahead on July 2nd and July 3rd, despite the earthquake occurring on June 13th. The original Armageddon Christchurch expo was cancelled due to the February 22nd earthquake causing severe damage to the city, but the new venue is unaffected by the recent aftershocks.

AVCon: AVCon announced that fundraising through Fundbreak to cover travel costs for guest LittleKuriboh to attend the conversation successfully reached the target amount of $3000.

Manifest: Pre-registration for this year's Manifest convention has been extended to July 24th. Tickets can be pre-registered on Manifest's online store.
