Furnal Equinox 2013, the fourth annual Furnal Equinox, was held March 8th to 10th, 2013 at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The theme of the convention was "Furries in Uniform".[1]

Attendance at the convention over the three days was over 750, including 206 participants in the Fursuit Parade. The convention also raised CA$6,000 (~US$5837) for the Mississauga Humane Society.[2]

Guests of Honour[edit]

The Guests of Honour at Furnal Equinox 2013 were furry artists RedCoatCat and Rukis.

New Hotel[edit]

At the closing ceremonies of the 2012 convention, the Furnal Equinox convention committee announced the 2013 edition of the convention would take place at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre and presented a video to show off the new venue.[3]

The new hotel provides 26,000 square feet of space exclusive to the convention — an increase of roughly 50% from the former space at the Doubletree — as well as the following:

  • More conference rooms for panels and programming, as well as an expanded Zoo
  • A larger dealers den
  • A hospitality lounge accessible directly from con space
  • A breakfast buffet and food carts provided by the hotel

Registration[edit]

Registration and Dealers Den signups opened to attendees on 30 July 2012.

For the first time, in addition to the attendee and sponsor levels from prior years, the convention added a supersponsor registration level. For an additional $95 above the regular admission, the supersponsor level provided access to all sponsor benefits plus an exclusive supersponsor luncheon and a custom engraved dog tag. Supersponsors also had their name printed in the conbook.[4]
