SAN DIEGO, California. (AP) – The San Diego Comic-Con will remain virtual for the July event, but organizers are planning a smaller gathering later this year.
Comic-Con announced on Monday that the annual gathering will return for the second year in a row on July 23-25. Individual experience was again canceled due to coronavirus warnings about large gatherings.
The organizers noted that the delay in the epidemic and other challenges have left them with “limited financial resources.” As a result, the July virtual convention was reduced from four days to three days.
However, the organizers have announced that they are planning a smaller personal event in November in San Diego. Details have not been released yet.
Comic-Con attracts more than 135,000 people each year to the Goslamp district for a comic book conference, often with elaborate costumes.
It is not uncommon for thousands of people to gather in one room for a panel discussion, աս the showroom is usually crowded with people inspecting products.
Last year, the organizers of Comic-Con postponed the smaller Anaheim WonderCon event in California, which was scheduled to take place in mid-April. The version of the event took place instead.
The organizers of Comic-Con were slowly deciding on their biggest event: a huge money-making event for restaurants / hotels in San Diego, and an advertising stop for Hollywood TV movies. The event is expected to bring in more than $ 147 million a year for the local economy.
