That being said, our show has incorporated 80's nostalgia, Anime, TF, GI Joe, Thundercats, TMNT, HeMan, Super Heroes etc. to become a pop culture convention. While still remaining true to our roots, which is Transformers, we will now offer something for all genre types so everyone can enjoy the weekend in 2014.

Apparently SavCon 2014 has been cancelled, and potentially all future SavCons. Their website is now blank, their facebook page and twitter account are both deleted, and a little googling gave me this post:
Yes the show has been cancelled. The hotel wanted to add some more charges and that would of put him way over budget. He could not see contacting dealers and paid registered people stating that they need to pay more money

This is very unfortunate to all Transformers fans in the southeast. Are there any other TF cons in this area?

sorry to hear - in Atlanta, I head to Savannah frequently, and was planning on attending this year. Oh well. Still shooting for TFCon in Chicago.

Yes this show has been canceled. They were some changes that the hotel wanted to add into the contact after talks were started. It would of removed a 3rd of the tables from the dealer room. Their were also some benefits the hotel was going to give at the start of talks that they wanted to not honor after we started. It a shame as this show had a great fan based. We were going to set up at the show later this month. We will be at BOTCON and at TFCON. WE are know in talks with the Joe Atlanta show that is held in march each year. Hope to see our fans at that show
