PHOENIX — This isn’t the news you’re looking for – Phoenix Fan Fusion announced Wednesday it has canceled the 2021 convention due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Event organizers in a Facebook post said the decision to cancel the 2021 convention was due to uncertainty over when mass gatherings can resume and consulting with Phoenix Convention Center and city of Phoenix officials.

“We’ve been looking forward to seeing you all at our next convention, unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait just a bit longer,” the post read. “We feel this is the best option, as the safety and well-being of our attendees and participants is of utmost concern to us.”

It marks the second straight year the convention has been canceled due to the pandemic, with the event getting pushed from May to September last year before eventually getting canceled altogether in July as COVID-19 cases and metrics surged in the state.

Originally scheduled for May 28 to 30 of this year, the next convention will take place Jan. 14 to 16 of 2022 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Passes and exhibitor space already purchased for either the 2020 or 2021 convention will automatically transfer to next year’s convention, according to the Facebook post.

“We’ll be counting the days till we can celebrate our fandoms together again!” the post read. “Be safe and, of course, be excellent to each other. This is the way.”
