Furnexion is a furry convention held in Monterrey, Nuevo León, México. The first edition was originally planned for March 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic was repeatedly postponed, finally taking place over March 18-20, 2022. It is organized by Furros del Norte.
The initial antecedents of this convention dated from October 2018 with the realization of a local furmeet with a Halloween theme in Monterrey. At the same time, the organization team created the group named "Furros del Norte", the objective of this group to bring together the furry community mainly of the states of Nuevo León, Tamaulipas and Coahuila.
During 2019, the group announced its intentions to create a new convention, even promoting themselves with the presentation of a panel at Confuror, México's main furry convention. In the middle of the year, they announcement of a new convention called "Furnexion".
The convention was officially announced in July 2019; the original dates of the first edition were 27-29 March 2020, at the Istay Hotel located in the downtown of Monterrey . The first announcements of this convention caused a small polemic within the Mexican furry community due to the contents of the registration packages, and the "privileges" inside deluxe package such as direct contact with the staff members, leaving out the other registration levels for feedback. All errors were corrected in subsequent announcements.
The first guests of honor announced was the fursuiter Splat Fennec and her wife, the pilot Omnom Nomnomnom - who were in the end unable to attend, and were replaced by Ettevy (PawiePaws) - followed by multiple national artists like Gab Shiba, Magolobo, Noirekat, Rachel Natty among others.
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, initially this edition was postponed for 28 to 30 August, however a few months later seeing that the situation was not improving, this edition was until the weekend of February 26-28, 2021, finally as the situation did not improve, the convention was postponed again for the third time to December 10-12, 2021. The event finally occured March 18-20, 2022. MX$7,835 was raised for the charity, Corazones Incondicionales, and there were at least 81 attendees, with at least 37 fursuiters.
