An atheist convention featuring world-renowned author and scientist Richard Dawkins has been cancelled on account of poor ticket sales. The Global Atheist Convention, organized by the Atheist Foundation of Australia, was scheduled to take place next February in Melbourne, but has been called off.
“Ticket sales have been substantially below expectations and below the levels for previous conventions, so unfortunately, the convention cannot proceed,” a statement from the event read.
“As per the convention’s refund policy, in the event of cancellation only the purchase price of the ticket (including fees) is refundable. We are sorry that cancellation has placed you in a difficult situation, but we could not proceed with the Convention given the level of ticket sales.”
