AVCon is Adelaide’s own Anime and Video Game convention. Since 2002, their yearly convention has brought the best of pop culture and gaming to Adelaide. Yesterday evening the team at AVCon announced that the event will be postponed to early 2021, to ensure the safety of all involved.
Below is the text from the Facebook post shared:
“Unfortunately due to the most recent, and ever changing updates, nationally and world-wide we have made the decision to move AVCon to early 2021.
We valued your safety, and that of our 400+ staff, vollies, exhibitors, artists, members and committee which is ultimately what lead to this decision being made.
What does this mean?
AVCon will still be at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
All tickets will be honoured, and cancellations will be accepted.
For any enquires regarding artists, exhibitors, panels, cosplay, community, hosts etc please email the relevant parties found on the application forms.
The ball will be happening later in 2020, when deemed safe.
We will have new confirmed dates out as soon as possible.
If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, stay healthy,
Emily, Elise, Lauren and Tom (AVCon elect)”
