Laurie Mann has announced the cancellation of Confluence 2013. The Pittsburgh convention was scheduled for July 19-21 weekend. This would have been its 25th anniversary.
The con had changed hotels a couple of months ago in response to a hike in the cost of function place. Now the replacement plans to close in July, just four days before Confluence was to have happened. The committee looked again but couldn’t find the right hotel for its needs.
