Equicon '81 was a Star Trek/Media convention held April 17-19, 1981 at the Sheraton Plaza La Reina Hotel in Los Angeles. It was chaired by John and Bjo Trimble and attendance was about 1400 people (2000+ had been expected). There was a Masquerade.

It was the first Equicon held in five years and over the course of the weekend turned into a minor disaster with vandalism, many no-shows on the program and some of the film and TV stars attending being problems themselves. The Trimbles announced that because of this they would run no more Equicons.

See File 770 26, p. 22 for a con report by Milt Stevens.
