Summer MondoCon 2020 is cancelled

We need to share sad news. Unfortunately, we need to cancel Summer MondoCon 2020 – which we planned to hold on August 22 and 23.

As you could read in the last couple of days, we introduced numerous health safety measures to keep the event and you as safe as possible. We still believe that these measures would have helped to achieve our goals.

However, because of the general situation on the pandemic, and the sudden rises in confirmed COVID-19 cases in Hungary, and the fact that because of these changes many of our partners, speakers and contestants cancelled their own participation in our event…also lead to this decision. Of course, we have expected this to come, and we were able to handle the situation till a certain level – for example, instead of our foreign cosplay guests, we invited hungarian ones, we licensed 3 anime movies to screen in the place of cancelled main stage programs. However, the continuous cancellations led us to realize that we can’t hold the convention in the right quality, especially, that it seems that the pandemic will burst out more during next week, which would result in even more cancellations. 

Because of this, and because of the constant uncertainty led by the spread of the pandemic, we decided to cancel Summer MondoCon 2020.

We are really sorry that this summer will go away without the event. We know that many of you were eagerly waiting for our convention. When the circumstances make it possible to hold again an event with great quality, together with the right health safety measures, then we will do it. Besides this we plan to hold some of the cancelled programs online in the upcoming weeks.

Of course, we will reimburse all the paid ticket’s prices.

#⃣ Who ordered the ticket online and paid for it from a bank account: you don’t need to do anything. We will automatically transfer the ticket’s price back to your bank account.

#⃣ Who ordered online but paid with cash – those people please write to email address with their booking number and bank account, so we can transfer the money back to their bank account.

#⃣ Those who bought their tickets at our offline partners, they can bring them back there. Or, they can save it to our next event.

Thanks for your understanding, and we hope that we can meet again at the next MondoCon!
