Well here we go again. The COVID-19 Pandemic is already making some conventions changed their dates for next year. Today Both, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) and Emerald City Comic Con changed their 2021 dates to December. While it might be a blow to convention fans in the Midwest and West Coast who were ready to start the 2021 on the convention floors, it may be a blessing in disguise. Meaning with the rise in COVID-19 cases it will give the conventions more time to have things possibly settle down and not be canceled again for the year. Here are the official statements for both conventions:
Emerald City Comic Con (ECCC)
Emerald City Comic Con is our space to celebrate all things fandom with everyone that makes up this amazing community, and it is so special for all of us. It’s been a rough year, and we’ve truly missed bringing you the geekiest show in the Pacific Northwest.
As we look forward to next year, we want to build the best and safest event possible. In order to do this, we made the decision to move the show to December 2-5, 2021. The safety and the well-being of all those that come together for this show will always come first.
Information about badge sales, guests, and all things ECCC will be shared in the months to come, but in the meantime, please take care of yourselves and each other. We look forward to hanging out with you next December, thank you for your patience, support and understanding. Read more: https://bit.ly/3eSb12r
Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2)
Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo is one of the very best communities and we remain incredibly grateful that we were able to celebrate all the best geek culture has to offer together with you last February. As we look forward to next year and building you the best event possible, we’ve made the decision to move the show to December 10-12, 2021. Safety, and the well-being of our creators, exhibitors, guests, and the many people that come together to create this event, always comes first for us.
