As you may be aware, Thursday March 12th, Governor Wolf issued an order directing all Montgomery County schools, public spaces, and gathering spaces to be closed for two weeks. Across the state, he also encouraged the cancellation or postponement of any large gatherings, especially with more than 250 attendees. The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! is held in Montgomery County, and our considerably higher attendance mean that we are directly affected by this order. We have been informed that there is a high likelihood of the venue closure being extended past the initial two weeks, to a time that will affect our planned dates.
The safety and health of our attendees, exhibitors, guests, staff and volunteers has always been the highest priority for us. Due to this above-mentioned order and the strong recommendation of our venue, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our show to Labor Day weekend – September 4-6, 2020. We are making this call now in order to give many of our attendees, vendors, and exhibitors a chance to modify or refund their travel plans with the support of the airlines.
We understand the financial impact that this postponement may have on our exhibitors, artists, guests, and other small businesses that rely on shows such as ours. While we deeply regret that this move was necessary, we feel that it is in the best interest of the continued health and safety of all involved parties to do so. Please be patient with us as we work through all the details. We will keep you all updated as we have information to share, and please stay safe and make responsible choices in regards to your health during this time.
I BOUGHT A TICKET TO THE APRIL 2020 SHOW - WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Any ticket you purchased online is still valid and will remain so for the new dates – September 4-6, 2020. If you cannot attend on that date, then simply do not come to the show. After the event, we will check for tickets that were not checked and any tickets not checked in will be automatically transferred and valid for the next show in April 2021 (dates to be announced soon).
This is an automated process, and you do not need to email us or do anything further.
I BOUGHT A PHOTO OP - WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
We are working hard to secure the same guest list.
Any Photo Ops purchased for the April 2020 show will remain valid for the September 2020 show. If you cannot attend the September 2020 show, the photo op can be transferred to a new guest photo op (of equal monetary value) for our April 2021 show (dates to be announced) or April 2022 show (dates to be announced).
If the guest you wish to have a photo op with cannot attend the September 2020 show, the photo op can be transferred to a new guest photo op (of equal monetary value) of your choice.

Each exhibitor will still have their paid and guaranteed spots at the rescheduled show in September. If for any reason you are unable to exhibit in September, our vendor coordinator will work with you to move your spot forward to the April 2021 show.
