San Diego Comic-Con announced that its in-person event for July 2021 has been postponed again, opting for a smaller event at a later date.
San Diego Comic-Con recently announced that its July in-person event has been canceled for the second year in a row and will be virtual.
In a statement posted on Twitter, SDCC announced that despite the launch of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine, July would still be too early to host an in-person meeting, especially for an event as large as San Diego Comic-Con. . “For this reason, we have made the challenging decision to postpone Comic-Con 2021 as an in-person meeting until our 2022 dates, and once again host this year’s celebration as the free online Comic-Con @ Home,” the statement reads. Due to “limited financial resources,” the online event will be reduced to a three-day virtual event from July 23-25.
In light of this decision to postpone the event on a larger scale, the SDCC also announced the decision to hold a “smaller in-person event” in November 2021 as a “safer alternative.” The statement reads: “We are pleased to announce that the San Diego Comic Convention is planning to host a three-day in-person convention in San Diego in November.” Specific details, including attendance capacity, as well as card and ticket costs, have yet to be confirmed.
The announcement also states that anyone whose badge is carried over to the 2021 event “will have those badges automatically carried over to the 2022 event unless a refund is requested.” A badge refund request can be submitted on the official Comic Con website. This decision comes a few weeks after the announcement that the WonderCon in-person event was also canceled and would instead take place virtually at over the course of two days in March.
