This is the first time in its 50-year history, that the event had to be cancelled. And while many such conferences are hoping to be held later this year, the SDCC is completely cancelled.
Instead, the organizers are looking forward to 2021. They plan to hold the SDCC on July 22-25, 2021 at the San Diego Convention Center.
All 2020 badge holders will soon have the option of requesting a refund or to transfer their badge to next year’s event. The same goes for all exhibitors for SDCC 2020. They will be able to get a refund or simply transfer the payment for participation next year.
“Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for SDCC. “We eagerly look forward to the time when we can all meet again and share in the community we all love and enjoy.”
There are also news on the WonderCon which was slated for April 10-12 this year, but naturally it was also cancelled. The organizers are now planning to hold this event on March 26-28, 2021.
