FedCon 27 | News | Wichtige Gast-Informationen

Here you will find Important Guest Information about the guest list of FedCon.

The invited stars are undoubtedly among the programme highlights among the fans. In spite of careful planning and preparation (basis for announcements are legally valid contracts) it is not always possible to welcome all already announced FedCon guests completely. This can be due to a variety of reasons (e. g. short term turning obligations, illness, economic needs, etc.). As soon as there is a change of this kind, we will communicate this Important Guest Information here in the article. A quick overview of cancellations can be found in the “Cancellations” section of the right-hand sidebar.

The FedCon team, with its many years of experience (event organisation since 1992), does its utmost to offer an incomparable experience. In this regard, reference is also made to point 2 of the General Terms wich are part of every order from our Ticket-Shop. In return, we thank you for your trust and understanding.

Richard Dean Anderson | Note from 07.03.2018

Announcing new stars for a FedCon is always a great pleasure for us. This makes it all the more difficult if we have to cancel the planned visit of a popular guest. It goes without saying, of course, that every effort is made beforehand to avoid taking such a step. But this is not always possible.

That is the situation we have today. After careful consultation with the agency, it is clear that Richard Dean Anderson will unfortunately not be present in Bonn from May 18 to 21 ,2018. Of course, all autographs and photo vouchers will be refunded.

As far as the reasons are concerned, we do not want to beat around the bush. The organization of the celebrity guest visits is almost always associated with very high costs and risks. This requires decisions that have to be made long before the actual event. This is comparable to a high stakes poker match.

If it becomes apparent that financing is in jeopardy (e. g. due to insufficient autograph and photo-session ticket advance sales), it is necessary to react as quickly as possible so that the entire event does not go wrong. As organizers, we have a high responsibility towards all our visitors.

We count on your understanding and you can be sure that we will always do everything in our power to make FedCon an extraordinary experience.

Shazad Latif | Note from 25.01.2018

Unfortunately, we received a rejection from the actor's agency. The following reasons were provided in this context:

"Shazad deeply apologizes for the cancellation. He made the decision without fully knowing the complexity of his forthcoming schedule and commitments.

Shazad says he’s obliged to cancel now, and wait until everyone involved with the Star Trek: Discovery team has is a better understanding of how future production and PR obligations will flow.

CBS and his producers have given him their support, want him to attend FedCon, and say they will do what they can to make it work.

Shazad says he’d heard what a great show FedCon is and was really looking forward to attending. He hopes the fans will understand, and forgive, and he promises to make every effort to get to the ‘one and only’ fabulous FedCon."

So it is quite possible that the visit of Shazad Latif might be possible in the short term. We will keep you informed of this.
