The event was scheduled for Saturday, September 19th, 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, USA.
Unfortunately, the event has now been canceled.
Tickets sales for the event were being done through Kickstarter. This means that if the fundraising goal is not met then the event or project usually does not occur.
The initial rate of tickets sales for the event started off too slow to show a strong probability of meeting the fundraising goal.
The organizers of the event, Paige Towers and Bryan Shigekawa, provide some insight about the challenges with the event planning, as well as their heartfelt apologies for canceling the event.
The link to their explanation is below.

I like the idea of Mini Conventions in countries. I was thinking of organising an ASMR event myself. Would be so cool!
Oh exciting! I wish I could go, but I can’t travel in the middle of the school semester 😦
Conventions are wonderful events that some people can and will attend. They are limited however, to those who are able to go to its location.
With consideration to the rest of us, who cannot attend due to distance & expense… I wonder if there has been much thought or discussion to how the first ever ASMR convention experiences might be shared.
One thought is … how might we set up “mini” regional get togethers so that, during the same week there could be worldwide real time experiences going on. Regional groups could watch talks & things via the internet along with duplicating some activities on a smaller scale.
At this point, it is a little frustrating because, to my knowledge, nothing has ever been set up where I can go, for example, to list where folks live, so we don’t have the ability (yet), to attempt regional get togethers.
