Thankyou to Everyone

Now that we’ve all had time to rest and recover from a great convention, all of us here at PonyCon AU would like to thank everyone who made it possible.

Thank you to all the staff and volunteers -both for the convention during the day and the nighttime concerts- for working so hard to make everything run as smoothly as possible. There may have been a few bumps here and there, but you helped up get through it and made the con a fantastic experience.

Thank you to our design team. To Steffy for all of your work on our Convention posters and After Dark branding to hype us up for some fantastic nights of pony music, and to Sarah Ralph for the beautiful convention book design and layout.

Thank you to all the artists who worked on the convention passes and gave us all mini masterpieces to wear around the convention.

Thank you to all the people who ran panels and workshops, helping make everyone’s PonyCon AU experience a whole lot more interesting and fun.

Thank you to the traders for selling such awesome merch and art. Some of us may have a bit less money, but we have so many cool things and memories.

Thank you to Celestia Radio, Ponyville Live, Hive Radio and Fillidelphia Radio for streaming the event, letting everyone who couldn’t make it share in all the fun.

Thank you to Banter Toys for allowing us to host the Australian debut release for the MLP CCG at PonyCon AU.

Thank you to our Pozible backers for making it possible to bring Andrea Libman and Peter New to Australia, making this convention bigger and better!

And last, but certainly not least, a sincere and emphatic THANK YOU to everyone who attended. Thank you all so much for your support and enthusiasm. We hope to see you at future events!
