San Diego Comic-Con International has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.  This marks the first time in 50 years that's it's been canceled.  

"Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision," stated David Glanzer of San Diego Comic-Con International.

What This Means for Comic-Con Badge-Holders

Fans who purchased badges for Comic-Con 2020 will have the option to request a refund or transfer their badges to Comic-Con 2021.

According to event organizers “All 2020 badge holders will receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to request a refund.  Exhibitors for Comic-Con 2020 will also have the option to request a refund or transfer their payments to Comic-Con 2021 and will also receive an email within the next week with instructions on how to process their request.”

What About Hotel Reservations Made via the Event’s Official Hotel Affiliate

Organizers explained, “In the next few days onPeak, Comic-Con’s official hotel affiliate, will be canceling all hotel reservations and refunding all deposits made through them.  There is no need for anyone who booked through onPeak to take any action, including trying to cancel their reservations online or contacting the company via phone as the process will be handled automatically. Those who booked rooms through onPeak will be notified when refunds have been completed."
