CINCINNATI — The 2020 Cincinnati Comic Expo has been canceled, according to a post on the event’s Facebook page.
Citing the state of Ohio’s ban on mass-gathering events and concern for the well-being of guests, fans, exhibitors, volunteers, staff and patrons, event organizers made the decision to cancel the 2020 convention.
Ticket buyers have the option to allow their purchases to carryover to the 2021 or 2022 Comic Expo or, for a limited time, request a refund.
Organizers said they’re working with announced guests and vendors to schedule them for future events.
Expo Administrator Matt Bredestege said the convention draws anywhere from 22,000 to 25,000 guests each year.
The 2020 Cincinnati Comic Expo was scheduled to run the weekend of Sept. 11-13.
