…and we all survived.
The final tear-downs are finished, bank details sorted, and everybody has finally gone home after what was an amazing BroCon 2014. With 594 people through our doors across the weekend, all of our expectations were blown away and BroCon 2014 really did grow to a whole other level. We have many thanks, congratulations, and a considerable amount of other facts to throw about here, so let me get started.
Thanks go out first and foremost to all of the attendees that came to BroCon this past weekend. Be that a day pass or weekend, be you an adult or a wee child, every set of boots through the door takes the day somewhere new, and I’m not afraid to say that by as early as Friday evening we were on cloud nine, with over 300 people already through the door by that point. We genuinely hope you enjoyed the experience and hope you will all be back next year for even more fun and games.
Thanks also go out to all of our great traders and artists, without whom the very atmosphere of the main hall would have been lost. They are also the stars of the Charity Auction, donating most of the items that collectively made €2,036, which along with the collection buckets and maid cafe donations see the total raised for Pieta House this year go to a heart-warming €2,222.52. That is an incredible achievement and belongs to every person that came through that door, be it to work, to trade, or to attend.
And huge thank you to our guests who were all incredible throughout the course of the weekend. Paul, Tabitha, Diamanda, and Dave, ye added an experience to the con not found anywhere else in Ireland, and we really hope to see you all again in the future.
Last but certainly not least, our sponsors and friends that gave so much to make this con what it was this year, and hopefully will be right there with us to help it grow into the future; Pieta House, Crunchy Roll, Easons, The Gathering, Kromlech, Omniplex Cinemas, Four Season Pizza, Backspindle Games, Rachel Fleming, the Knaves, and the Oldhammer crew. Raise a glass!
And to finish things off on a very successful 2014, we would like to congratulate all of the winners from this year’s events at BroCon. Thank you all, and see you all on July 10-12th 2015, for BroCon VI.
