Comic-Con International is officially canceling the 2020 San Diego Comic-Con, marking the first time in 50 years that the show will not go on. It is the right thing to do. Comic-Con wants to do all it can to fight the spread of this virus and support workers who are on the front line, fighting this battle.
There will be better days ahead and they believe the Comic-Con Museum will play an important role in San Diego’s recovery after COVID-19. The museum is in a destination city and tourism is vital to San Diego’s economy. The development and opening of the Comic-Con Museum will act as a catalyst to reopen one of the world’s best urban parks within a destination city known worldwide.
Some of the proposed Phase I renovations will shift, but this will not scale back the visitor experience. Comic-Con Museum 2021 grand opening is still on track and you will soon see building plans that illustrate this transformation. To ensure they stay connected in this new reality, the Museum will introduce new and creative digital ways to bring the magic of Comic-Con to you all year-round.
Comic-Con Museum will redouble their efforts to regain momentum on opening this museum by 2021. Better days are ahead.
