Despite the lack of physical event this year, we will still work to support local charity partners. We will announce more details — including this year’s charities — soon. We sincerely apologize to any Tenno who planned to attend TennoCon. If you’ve already booked travel arrangements, we strongly recommend you reach out to your travel provider as soon as possible.”
