Coronavirus Update – Feb 2021
Following the advice of industry, government, and health authorities, we are planning Awesome Con as an in-person event this August. We do not want to dismiss the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to be a severe medical issue, and we wish to thank all the doctors, nurses, and scientists who have fought against it for a solid year. And it is because of this hard work and the growing success of vaccination programs that we believe the world will be a healthier place by summer/fall.
We are hopeful to bring fans together again to celebrate our community at Awesome Con and are working closely with the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and local officials to adhere to the most up-to-date safety technologies and recommendations, and as the state of COVID-19 continues to rapidly change, look for further important updates from us, as well as our full reopening plan in the lead up to this year’s show.
And as we look forward to a time where we can gather again, we – of course – want to state we will only hold the convention if we can safely. Again, though, we are seeing major advances in the fight against coronavirus, and we trust there will be further victories in the months ahead.
Until then, please do your part. Please stay safe, wear a mask, and get vaccinated when you can. And we hope to welcome you to Awesome Con this year.
