Another comic con bites the dust. Thanks a friggin’ bunch, Covid-19.
This one, to be fair, was very much on the cards, with Las Vegas proving to be a hot zone of rising figures for Coronavirus cases, and also the anticipated Covid-19 status of the United States not to have abated to any manageable position by the date of when Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con was due to be held (Friday 26th June – Sunday 28th June, at the Las Vegas Convention Center).
From the official press release:
AMAZING LAS VEGAS COMIC CON ANNOUNCES CANCELLATION OF 2020 SHOW
We have been looking forward to coming together at AMAZING LAS VEGAS COMIC CON and we were busy programming the best possible show featuring all your favorite Pop Culture Architects. Based on the worldwide developments and the state of Nevada’s new ruling that conventions with over 250 people in attendance are banned for the foreseeable future, we have made the hard decision to cancel AMAZING LAS VEGAS COMIC CON for 2020. We tried to look for alternate dates but due to the uncertainties and for the safety of our staff, vendors, attendees, and celebrity guests we feel this is the best step forward. We look forward to having you join us in June 2021 and will keep you all posted with updates on the new dates at the earliest possible opportunity.
“Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con has become the established leader in Las Vegas for Pop Culture Entertainment. Given the hard work of our staff in building another top-quality event, it saddens us that our summer convention is unable to return in the current environment, but safety must come first. In the coming months we look toward to strengthening our ties to the community, bringing top talent, and celebrating fandom soon and we will back in 2021 stronger than ever!” Said Amazing Comic Conventions Owner Jimmy Jay.
