Miami HurriconPerformance & Event Venue in Miami, Florida
I will definitely
After having a series of difficult discussions, our staff has decided to cancel Hurricon 2016. Unfortunately, we lost key members of our team from last year, and our staff was left unprepared for both the logistical planning of Hurricon, and the heavy communication that the event requires.
We apologize for the lack of communication over the last few weeks. It was never our intention to neglect our responsibilities,... as members of Hurricon’s staff. Our team understands that there are many vendors and artists who have already paid us for table reservations. We are currently in the process of refunding all the payments given to us to pay for table reservations.
Please allow us a few days to process these payments, and if you are not refunded by February 12th let us know immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work to refund you as quickly as possible.
We deeply and sincerely apologize to everyone who invested their time, energy, and money to try make Hurricon a success. We apologize for any confusion, hardships, and any other concerns that this sudden news may bring. This has been an extremely difficult but valuable lesson for everyone on our planning team; our only regret is that many others will also have to pay the price for us to learn it.
As always we appreciate your interest and patience in regards to working with us. We deeply regret being unable to host Hurricon this year.

- All participants who want to be in the contest at 6pm MUST attend Pre-Judging at 3pm in MACC 211B. We will have a sign labeling which room is the pre-judging room.
- Pre-judging will end either at 4:30pm or when every entry has been pre-judged, whichever happens first. This is to give the judges time to deliberate before 6pm and pick our winners.
- When your pre-judging is over, we will tell you what you need to do for the contest, but general rules are show up to the Main Stage at least 15 minutes prior so that we may line you up in order of entry number.
- At that point, we will give you instructions for on-stage posing (how many poses, how long, where to walk, etc.) and where to wait after you've gone up.
As of now, EVERY CURRENT ENTRY has been sent an e-mail with their entry number. If you have not received one yet, message us and we will tell you your number as well as resend the email.
