As of Monday March 16, 2020, there are no plans to cancel AnimeNEXT 2020. AnimeNEXT’s Board of Directors and I are aware of the current situation in New Jersey and the rest of the world related to the COVID-19 virus. We are carefully observing and diligently tracking what is happening on a state as well as federal level regarding any concrete restrictions that may impact our ability to host AnimeNEXT 2020.
We hope that in the next several weeks the situation will reach a safe resolution and that we do not have to cancel the convention. However, if circumstances arise and we cannot safely or in good conscience put on our convention, AnimeNEXT 2020 may be cancelled. If we decide to cancel, we will make sure everyone is informed punctually.
Should we cancel, communications will be sent out to our vendors, artists, and attendees with the next steps and any relevant actions that they need to take. Please watch our website, Facebook and social media for more information as it becomes available.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time and please be safe.
