Montreal Comiccon Updates
MONTREAL (QC), May 18, 2021 – Due to the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation, Montreal Comiccon has decided to postpone its twelfth edition scheduled for July 9 to 11, 2021, to next summer, from July 8 to 10, 2022 at Palais des congrès. The entire team wants to ensure the safety of all visitors as well as offering to fans a convention experience as remarkable as in the past years.
‘’The Comiccon family which includes everyone that has attended over the years features a wide range of different origins and diversities. Everyone shares one trait in common: We all care about our fellow humans. For this reason, we must put safety as our #1 priority collectively. And collectively we will return and when we do, it will be in greater numbers! Braver and bolder!’’ said Alex La Prova, the event’s co-founder.
More details on the 2022 edition will be released in the coming months.
In the meantime, pop culture fans will be able to get together during a one day only Virtual Comiccon that will take place on Saturday, July 10.
