Temporary Registration Freeze: an Official Statement from Frostbite


On the morning of December 14, the Frostbite staff was hit with a true Alberta Clipper: the Edward Hotel & Convention Center, our venue in 2018 and our planned venue for 2019, blindsided us by suddenly shutting its doors with no prior warning.
-
We are committed to presenting a stellar event, and this is why, mere moments after we discovered the news, our team has already begun working towards a solution. Know that we our doing our damnest to plow a path for Frostbite to continue uninterrupted in 2019. However, in the meantime, we have decided to freeze registration and request that all await further news before packing up your winter garb. We will deliver word by Christmas Day.
-
Please DM @ComeToFrostbite with any questions.
-
We love Frostbite, and we will bear any storm to run another phenomenal event.

Frostbite gets the ULTIMATE upgrade in 2019. We are focusing on a convention style experience: special guests, tabletop gaming, cosplay contest, and more! For our 4th installment, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Singles and Doubles join the main event lineup. Rivals of Aether makes its return to Frostbite this year, this time with doubles as a main event! As Frostbite is one of the few Nintendo partnered events of the year, Frostbite 2019 is a must-attend event in Q1 2019!

The Edward is across from Dearborn's Fairlane Town Center! Inside this shopping mall there are plenty of food and shopping options in addition to an AMC Movie Theater only a short walk across the parking lot. If you don't have time to walk over don't worry! The Edward itself has a variety of food options including an outstanding breakfast buffet and a cash and grab for a quick bite between matches. Still need more? There's a Benihana, A&W, and TGI Fridays along Town Center Drive. Find out even more: https://www.shopfairlane.com/
