It is the first in its history for this event but the Organizers assured attendees and fans that the event would be coming back on July 22nd to the 25th. But, unlike SXSW, who decided to not offer refunds after the Coronavirus, it will offer attendees who purchased badges for the convention a refund by emailing each participant instructions on how to either receive a refund or have it transferred over to the 2021 convention. Below is a statement from organizers regarding the remarks by California Governor, Galvin Newsom after the Press Conference from April 14th:

“Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, [organizers] had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer, Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.”
