Our Fellow Whovians,
It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you that NOLA TimeFest II 2014 will not be held at the Crowne Plaza New Orleans Airport on June 7, 2014.
With over 500 Whovians in attendance, NOLA TimeFest 2013 was an unprecedented success. For months we have been planning for the 2014 edition to be bigger and better - starting with a move up from a reception hall to a proper hotel (specifically, the Crowne Plaza New Orleans Airport in Kenner).
With the event looming just 6 weeks away, we were gearing up for the big push, but fate (and a structural engineer) had other plans. On the evening of Monday April 21, 2014, the NOLA TimeFest staff was shocked and upset to hear from the Crowne Plaza New Orleans Airport Director of Sales and Marketing that repairs to main ballroom damage, that had NOT been properly mitigated several years ago, would force the Crowne Plaza to cancel or push forward all group bookings at the hotel, from between June and August.
The NOLA TimeFest staff is pretty devastated by this news and is seeking out a new date from our long-contracted host hotel, ASAP. We spent much of April 22, 2014 contacting other hotels and venues in an attempt to book an alternate site for June 7, but at this late stage of the game, a different location on the same date is unlikely. Nevertheless, we will keep all of our friends in the Doctor Who fandom community in the loop for the resolution to this untimely outcome.
We welcome and encourage all members of the Whovian community to please reach out to us with any questions and concerns and any suggestions or leads on securing a new venue for NOLA Time Fest II.
Any hotel rooms booked for the event will be refunded by the Crowne Plaza. On April 25, 2014 we shall announce if we have secured an alternate site for June 7, 2014. If we must change the date, we shall honor any refund requests to email@example.com from our fellow Whovians who pre-ordered NOLA Timefest II memberships.
This is not the end, just a wrinkle in Time.
