Wow, really? That's a very impressive number! I had no idea it was that big. We could do with a bit more coverage of that around the fandom. Anyway, it seems to me that things may calm down a little now the fallout from the end of BronyCon has largely passed. I don't know whether Griffish Isles will return in 2019, though I think there'd be support for it if those operating it felt able to continue. If that, BronyScot and UK PonyCon do all run next year, it will be a pretty solid return nine years into the fandom. Of course, the big question is what happens when G4 has gone for good and G5 is on the way. UK PonyCon is a multi-gen convention anyway, so that particular aspect wouldn't be a problem -- but how would they react if attendances fell back significantly, let's say to the ~370 that attended back in 2014? Obviously a successful con could be run with those numbers, but equally obviously it wouldn't be the same as the UKPCs we have now with more than double that attendance. As with so much else in the con world, I'm glad I don't have to deal with that! The other two British cons are brony-specific, however, and they might face even bigger challenges. Would they decide that G4 was so much part of their identity that it was time to call it a day? Alternatively, would they try to embrace G5? How would they handle the inevitable (if probably relatively short) gap between the two generations? Once again, I don't have answers to those questions, but any con considering going on past next year will need to be thinking about them. They probably are already, quietly, but still.
