Convergence 14 took place between the 7th and 11th of August in Ybor City, Florida after a controversial and entertaining bid process.
There were 3 bids originally put forward for C14. Two of them were disqualified, leaving the vote between Ybor and Boo's Pants. It was decided that if Boo's Pants won that the bid process would reopen.
The original bids were:
The vote process that led to Angel, Bob and Rafe winning was the target of huge drama.
The Dallas (Hansel von Quenzer, Helena Jones, Fasciogoth, Dorothy, L3g3nd Q) and Hollywood (Bellz, Marissa, Alumiere, Becca, Guy, Christal, Boon and Trid) bids violated the bid process rules, and as such had to be disqualified.
This upset a number of people.
The list of ticket buyers contains approximately 190 names.
The organizers are documenting their experiences on the postmortem page.
