UPDATE: May 15, 8:15PM
Dear Anirevo community,
Thank you for your patience during this very uncertain and stressful time. We hope that you and all of your loved ones are doing well and are continuing to stay safe and healthy.
With great sadness, we are writing to announce the cancellation of Anirevo: Summer 2020, originally scheduled for July 31st to August 2nd, 2020.
We are working with the Vancouver Convention Centre for 2021 dates and will have them confirmed no later than May 15th, 2020. Anirevo 2021 will be held on July 30th to August 1st, 2021 at the Vancouver Convention Centre, West Building.
If you have pre-purchased tickets please refer below to our FAQs for information.
Your health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. We have been constantly monitoring the situation in hopes for a more positive outcome by the beginning of summer (perhaps a little bit too optimistically). We hoped that we could deliver a safe and amazing convention for all the fans, and apologize that we will be unable to do so this year.
We hope that aligning with the recent announcement made by Premier John Horgan as BC undergoes their Restart Plan, that we can help slow the spread of COVID-19, hopefully we can all return back to our regular lives as soon as possible.
We are grateful for your ongoing support. As we approach our 10th year, our team strives to plan an anime event that will be truly representative of our appreciation. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we all navigate through this together. We wish to thank all the volunteers, staff, fans, sponsors, artists, vendors, panelists, guests, and partners that have worked with us thus far. We have grown so much through the support, love, dedication, and passion from each and every one of you! We really, truly, honestly cannot thank you all enough.
In the meantime, please continue to stay safe and healthy — we hope you are able to join us in 2021 for our 10th year!
