Ahoy Captain Cats here and have some news to report about another event that has been affected by COVID-19 AKA The Corona Virus.
REEDPOP, the organization that runs the Emerald City Comic Con or ECCC for short has released a statement last Friday about postponing ECCC:
“Each year the Emerald City Comic Con team works their hardest to do right by the thousands of fans that come together in Seattle. We want to create a space for you to gather, be yourselves and make memories with those who matter to you most. We have been closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 virus in Seattle, and, after many hours of conversation internally and consultation with local government officials and the tourism bureau, we have decided to move next week’s Emerald City Comic Con to Summer 2020 with date and detail announcement forthcoming. We did everything that we could to run the event as planned, but ultimately, we are following the guidance of the local public health officials indicating that conventions should now be postponed.” REEDPOP
With the long list of events all over the world either postponed or canceled due to the Corona Virus, there is no telling what other events will be added to this list. To read more about the REEDPOP statement you can read it from the link here and once they post up any update on the new dates for the summer we will report it ASAP.
