The Global Atheist Convention scheduled to take place in February 2018 in Melbourne, Australia, has been cancelled due to a lack of interest. Ticket sales were substantially below expectations.
Richard Dawkins, Ben Goldacre and Salman Rushdie were supposed to participate but failed to attract people.
Meanwhile, Australia’s largest Christian [Protestant] gathering, Hillsong Conference in Sydney, had attendance figures of more than 31,000, up from 22,000 in 2014.
