MAY 13-15, 2022!
Dear QFX Family,
We appreciate the patience and understanding that you have afforded us over the last year and a half to give our team the ability to assess all facets of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As you can imagine, the number of things that must be taken into account has been substantial and having as much information as possible is imperative in order to make sure the right calls were made with consideration and care. Please note that, for consistency, we have pulled some information verbatim from our original postponement statement from last year.
After coordinating with our guests and venue, QFX East has been rescheduled for May 13-15, 2022. We want to provide our attendees with some insight into the parameters we looked at while making this decision. These include:
Ability of all in attendance being able to move freely via travel. This includes attendees, vendors, guests, speakers, volunteers, etc. While there are still some travel restrictions in place around the world, vaccine availability has increased and we feel confident that next spring will afford everyone the opportunity to safely attend our event
Keeping our guest lineup as close to our original one as possible. With hundreds of conventions around the world working to postpone or reschedule their dates, we inevitably have to compete with them not only for dates, but for the talent on their roster
Cost of travel and accomodation for attendees. There were a very select number of dates available to us and we took into consideration room rates and airline costs in an attempt to maintain the financial accessibility our original dates afforded
We hope that everyone can make our new dates as we have been working so hard on curating a memorable event for everyone that we hope is the start of something meaningful and special for years to come. However, if you are unable to make our new dates, you will have a number of options, including the ability to request a refund.
To request a refund for entry to QFX East, a vendor table, an autograph or a Meet and Greet, you may do so by filling out our refund request form here. It is very important to note that the refund process will take some time as we have to match all previously processed refunds to new ones. We are also using a new ticketing system and refunds must be synched within that. The expected time frame for refunds to be processed is between 90-120 days.
To help with the rescheduling of any applicable reservations that you may have OR to make new reservations, we have compiled a list of policies and resources:
Hotel Reservations: Our new room block link is here. You may also contact them directly at 813-204-3000 to make a reservation. Room nights are $129.00 USD per night

Ticket sales for entry to QFX East will resume next month. We will provide ample time to notify potential attendees with sale dates and times with the option of a payment plan. Tickets for autographs and photo-ops will be made available as we confirm our guests, which we have been working on with agents over the past few months.
Lastly, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation for your patience and understanding while we worked on our new dates. The COVID-19 situation is unprecedented and its effects have been widespread, affecting both businesses and individuals. Should you have any questions that are not addressed above, please contact us directly at email@example.com. We hope everyone is safe and well!
All the Best,
