SoCal Pet Con friends and attendees -
We are going to ask you to listen to a recording. It is long, but we ask you humor us. This is the least professional post we have ever had to write, but under the circumstances, we do not have much choice.
This is a conversation held with National Orange Show venue yesterday:
Here is the link to the audio – https://clyp.it/5rmrglnd
Now that you have heard that, we have one more. It is only a minute long.
Here is that link – https://clyp.it/4tamguej
So as it stands, the SoCal event has been cancelled, and every attempt we have made to contact the “CEO” mentioned in the phone call has been futile. They do not appear, as a state owned venue, to have a CEO, but whoever is in charge, we cannot reach them.
This has been a trying time for us, for our vendors and our sponsors.
As you can hear, the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego, who unlawfully cancelled our event last week, contacted and somehow influenced the National Orange Show to cancel our event, and make it impossible to meet their, as you heard, rapidly changing deadlines. Their "small" bank is Pacific West, and as you heard in the second audio file, none of what they stated is true.
We apologize for the inconvenience and if you are a ticket holder, your tickets will be refunded via TicketLeap.
Please call our office with any questions at 1-800-977-3609.
If you are vendor that we have not spoken to or emailed with today, please visit www.SanDiegoPetCon.com/facts
We are not going to let this go, and we will find a new venue and a rescheduled date will be announced as soon as we have it.
We apologize again for this trip to the Twilight Zone. We truly wish it were indeed just a bad dream.
