Fiesta I-II Streaming Room

We spend a lot of time looking at how to run successful conventions but sometimes conventions fail or need an infusion of money or people (or both!) or need to become something more inline with community needs. Can you rescue a convention and should you? How can you change the focus of a convention to revive it?
When is the time right to say, "We want to end our convention now?". What are the warning signs that a controlled, planned "final con" is warranted?

Is there ever a time when letting something fail is the right decision?
