Comic-Con International : San Diego has decided to online for it’s other annual event, Wondercon. This does not come as a surprise as the world still deals with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The in-person WonderCon event normally hosts 60,000+ people annually at the Anaheim Convention Center.
“We have hoped that by now, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic might have subsided enough that we could once again come together in person for a traditional WonderCon event. Sadly, as we continue to monitor the latest information from healthcare officials, we have determined the interest of public safety will prevent this spring’s WonderCon from moving forward as an in-person convention,” the organization has announced.
2021 WonderCon will now be an online convention like last year, scheduled to take place March 26 and 27.
“The challenges of this past year and the postponement of our two largest events have left us with limited financial resources, therefore WonderCon@Home will be a two-day celebration instead of the usual three days as we continue to marshal our resources for Comic-Con this summer,” the convention organization adds.
So it looks like plans are moving forward for the San Diego con scheduled for July 21-25.
