Attendance[edit]

While 533 people registered for the convention, only 490 actually attended. The drop in attendance is believed to be attributed to severe weather closing airports on both the Gold Coast and Brisbane on Friday May 1st, 2015 (the first day of the convention) which resulted in a number of flights being cancelled.

Charity[edit]

$5,883.60 was raised for the convention's charity, the Animal Welfare League of Queensland.[3]

Committee[4][edit]

During the closing ceremony, FlameDrake officially announced his retirement from the position of committee chair. It was also briefly indicated during his speech, that some of the committee positions would be filled by different people in 2016. The names of the other committee members retiring were not announced during the closing ceremony.
