Fetish Con™ (https://fetishcon.com/) organizers have regained ownership of Bond Con™, including trademark and domain. Originally named “Bond Con” when the trade show started in New York in 2001, Kink.com founder Peter Acworth acquired the domain and rights to the name in 2007 for a west coast event, after the New York trade show moved to Florida and adopted the name “Fetish Con” in 2003.
The west-coast-based Bond Con™ was held in San Francisco, at the SF / Kink Armory, for one year, in 2014 (https://avn.com/business/press-release/video/kink-com-kicks-off-folsom-street-fair-with-first-ever-bondcon-573010.html & https://www.xbiz.com/news/184917/kinkcom-opens-its-doors-for-inaugural-bondcon).
“We received a message from Peter [Acworth] asking if we’d like to have the ‘Bond Con’ name back,” says Event Promoter Genesis Lynn. “To say we were speechless is an understatement. Our answer was a resounding YES! Not only did Peter give us the chance to have our original and beloved name back, but he gifted the domain and trademark to us as well. As we have told Peter and Kink.com, we cannot begin to thank them enough for their generosity and kindness; thank you for making our dream once again become a reality.”
“I am delighted to be able to help in any way I can,” says Kink.com Founder Peter Acworth. “We at Kink.com had dreamed of hosting an event in conjunction with the Folsom Street Fair here in San Francisco, and hence why we bought the trademark originally when it was available. However, with the Armory now sold, it seems only right that Fetish Con and Bond Con be reunited. Fetish Con is such a wonderful convention, and I hope that, with the two brands reunited, it will grow stronger still over time!”
With the domain and trademark back under Fetish Con™ ownership, a reinvigorated Bond Con™ will take place during the St Petersburg trade show this year; the “show within a show” dedicated to bondage enthusiasts will be held in the host hotel’s newly-constructed 2100 sq ft of additional trade show space, to accommodate single-booth size booths specific to the theme.
