OTTAWA (ON), July 7, 2020 – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ottawa Comiccon announces that its ninth edition, originally scheduled for September 11 to 13, 2020 at EY Center, will be postponed to next year, from September 10 to 12, 2021.
“The health and safety of our attendees, guests, volunteers, partners, exhibitors and employees remain our top priorities. We support the measures taken by the government and health authorities to deal with COVID-19 and we hope that together we can overcome this crisis.
The current situation is certainly difficult for the entire community, but Comiccon’s leadership team looks to the future with hope and optimism. We hope everyone will remain healthy this summer and have a bright fall ahead. We will come back even stronger and continue to participate in Ottawa’s cultural, economic and touristic influence,” said co-founder Alex La Prova.
More details on the 2021 edition will be released in the coming months.
