Convention News: HasCon 2019 has been postponed
Back in October of 2017, Hasbro announced that HasCon 2019 would be taking place from September 6-8, 2019. It was explained at the time that skipping 2018 was a deliberate choice to give the team time to plan the event. The original HasCon was fun in some ways, but a mixed bag in others, so this one extra year to plan was not a huge surprise. However, the HasCon web site has been updated with a new message (see attached image) indicating that the convention has been delayed again. Here is the message transcribed from the image:
"HasCon 2019 has been postponed. Our inaugural HasCon in 2017 was a tremendous success thanks to fans like you and we want to ensure we are bringing the most exciting talent, entertainment, experiences and news to our future events. Please check back for updates or follow us on Twitter and Instagram @Hasbro"
Given that the original planned date for HasCon 2019 was September 2019, it will be interesting to see just where in the fourth quarter the convention will eventually land and whether it will take on the same form as the previous convention. More news on this as it becomes available!
