In mid-April, officials announced that this year’s San Diego International Animation Show had been canceled due to a new corona virus outbreak,media slash Gear reported. Like many other major events planned for this year, the team decided to cancel the event because of restrictions on the blockade, uncertainty about the future and the risk of large crowds gathering. Now, however, officials have announced that the anime show will be held online.
San Diego Comic-Con is a major event that attracts more than 150,000 people each year. As the name suggests, the international event is in San Diego, California, but will change this year. After news of the cancellation, the non-profit organization behind the conference announced that it planned to hold a digital event for everyone. The team points out that there won’t be any queues, tickets or other annoying things at digital events, and people can sit on their favorite lounge chairs and enjoy their favorite snacks.
The San Diego International Comic-Con was scheduled for July 23, and officials have not said when the online event will take place, but more details will arrive in the coming weeks. As expected, the San Diego Comic-Con will return to offline from the summer of 2021.
According to Deadline, the team behind the meeting said.
Recognizing that countless participants save and plan for the conference each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely on its activities to make a living, they had hoped to postpone the decision, and that COVID-19’s concerns are expected to diminish by the summer. But the ongoing health monitoring report and the governor’s recent statement sit until the governor’s statement made it clear that this year’s plan is unlikely to move forward safely.
