Midwest Media Expo 2017 - CANCELLED (UPDATES) by


While not a purely pony news, a longtime gathering place for horse-fans - Midwest Media Expo in Detroit - has announced that this year's event has been CANCELLED.
The heartbreaking news for hundreds of con-hungry fans comes a mere THREE DAYS before the event was to begin. The exact cause of the sudden cancellation is not yet known to the public at large.

Previous conventions have played host to many pony-related events including premiers from Silly Filly Studios.

The announcement is below.
In subsequent responses on the Facebook announcement refunds WILL be provided to those already registered with the convention.


We are coming to you with a very heavy heart to inform you that, due to circumstances beyond our control, the 2017 Midwest Media Expo has been cancelled. For the past year we have been working hard to bring you a very special event, and it pains us greatly to have to make such an announcement, especially this close to our event date. We understand how much this event meant to everyone, and we apologize for this happening so suddenly. At this time, we are making arrangements to assist those displaced by this turn of events and those affected should expect we will be sending off notifications immediately to go over available alternatives.
We will be making further statements as we are able to discuss things, but know that we are working with good people to help us in this dark hour. Thank you very much for your understanding.
Morgan Kollin
Chairman of the Midwest Media Expo


Unconfirmed rumors have begun to circulate that the Hotel which served as Midwest Media Expo's venue was responsible for the sudden cancellation of the event. In response, hundreds of congoers and supporters have taken to the ratings websites to drive the Hotel's reputation downward in retaliation.


In the last 24 hours, the Edward Hotel's various social media pages (even ones not officially associated with the business) have taken a beating. the official Facebook page now bears a 1.7/5 Star rating. 




The convention put out this statement in Response to the actions of the enraged displaced congoers.
We would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support at this time and we have several announcements to make, and this is the first of them. Over the past day we have been in contact with various groups who have offered us opportunities that we are hoping to pursue. There will be more details as we are able to provide them.
Currently we understand that there are individuals who are very upset over the recent turn of events. However we implore everyone to cease any attacks towards the hotel. The outcome with the venue is far from what we were hoping for, and we are working to settle our differences. We still have something in store for this weekend, and will keep everyone posted.

The Hotel also put out this statement.


The Edward Hotel was surprised to learn just the other day as well, that this weekend’s M2X event was being cancelled. Here’s hoping the event organizer can work things out in the future and bring this exciting event back to Dearborn! We’ll miss seeing everyone this weekend.

Congoers were...unimpressed.

  2. Ah yes Silly Filly Studios. The assholes that premiered Snowdrop on Bronystate and then acted like complete assholes when the audience there didn't 100% like their work.

    2. Not entirely. DHX staffers just block for no good reason on social media. Silly Filly actively tried to fuck with Bronystate.
