Update: A Caps spokesman has confirmed that there will be no convention this year.
It’s starting to look like last year’s cancellation of the popular annual Caps Convention may be permanent. Multiple season ticket holders have confirmed they’re hearing the same message from the front office: There will not be a convention, at least not this season.
That makes sense given the other evidence, notably that there hasn’t been an announcement on the convention from the team. The convention is traditionally held in late September or early October; if it were on this year, tickets would already be on sale if not sold out. The website for D.C.’s Walter E. Washington Convention Center, where CapsCon has been held since 2010, doesn’t list any Capitals events in the near future, either.
