Millennicon Ends Its Run

Millennicon has announced that this year’s event, its 30th, would be the final Millennicon. The Cincinnati convention began in 1986 with Millennicon -15, with a numbering scheme counting up to the Millennium. Once that goal was reached, they picked up with Millennicon 16. Con chair Christy Johnson explained that decreasing memberships and hotel nights caused the committee to decide to close out the convention.
