After cancelling Confluence 25, scheduled to have been held in 2013 due to lack of an hotel, Confluence 2014 will be held the weekend of July 25-27 at the Four Points by Sheraton Pittsburgh North in Mars, Pennsylvania. William H. Keith has been announced as the Guest of Honor with W. Scott Snyder as the featured Filk Guest.
Pittsburgh convention Confluence 25 has been cancelled due to a lack of hotel. Confluence selected a new hotel this year after their previous hotel raised their rates. Unfortunately, the new hotel has announced plans to close four days before Confluence’s scheduled dates. A quick look was unable to find an available hotel, so the committee has cancelled this year’s event and plans to continue the convention in 2014.
