San Diego Comic-Con has revealed its plans for [email protected], announcing free and unlimited attendance for the virtual convention which is now set to take place July 22-26.
Earlier this year, San Diego Comic-Con was officially canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. A virtual version of the convention was announced shortly after to fill the void left by the popular annual event. San Diego Comic-Con has now announced its plans for its first-ever virtual convention, which will be free for all with unlimited attendance.
“For the first time in our 50-year history, we are happy to welcome virtually anyone from around the globe,” said SDCC spokesperson David Glanzer. “Though stay-at-home conditions makes this a very difficult time, we see this as an opportunity to spread some joy and strengthen our sense of community.”
While San Diego Comic Convention will not be hosting the pop culture convention as it has traditionally for the last 51 years, the [email protected] initiative will still feature aspects of the traditional convention such as an online Exhibit Hall offering promotions, specials, and limited-edition products.
In addition, [email protected] will also be host to exclusive panels and presentations related to comics, gaming, television, film that the convention has become known for. But that’s not all as [email protected] will also have a Masquerade, gaming, and other activities for attendees to participate in.
[email protected] is officially set for July 22-26. While attendance is free, San Diego Comic-Con will provide badges for fans to print out and wear as they log in for the virtual convention.
As of now, San Diego Comic-Con will return for its traditional in-person convention on July 22, 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on San Diego Comic-Con and [email protected] as we learn it and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content in the future!
