The Team behind The Calgary Expo have released a statement on the cancellation of the Expo for 2020 based on the current status of the Pandemic.
We’ve been looking forward to celebrating Calgary Expo’s 15th Anniversary with you this year and have been busy planning an epic show. Based on the developments globally and in Alberta, that COVID-19 continues to present, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel Calgary Expo 2020.
When we postponed the April show to July, we believed that would be enough time for things to settle down. We have been in touch with community partners, and despite all of our efforts and collaboration, it has become clear that July is not a viable option. We understand how important this show is to so many people and we’re grateful for the fierce passion we have seen from community partners and online. You deserve a celebration worthy of the time that goes into your booths, cosplay, and travels. This year, that is unfortunately not possible. If you purchased a ticket for the show, you will be receiving a refund. You do not need to take any action.
Although circumstances keep us from being together in person, we’re working on building virtual meetups to bring you the fan-tastic experience at home. Please keep an eye on our channels in the coming week.
Let’s stick together as a community, stay safe, and look after each other so we can celebrate fandom to the fullest next year from April 22-25, 2021.
Fan Next Steps:
If you purchased a ticket for the show, you will be receiving a refund. The refund will be immediate, so you should see it on your credit card statement shortly depending on your financial institution. You do not need to take any action.
Exhibitor Next Steps:
All exhibitors will have the following options.
Transfer booth fees to Calgary Expo 2021 (Apr 22-25) and we’ll guarantee you the 2020 rate you were quoted for the original 2020 Calgary Expo 4-day show
