ORLANDO, Fla. - MegaCon 2020 has been postponed amid coronavirus concerns.
On Monday morning, the convention announced that the event has been moved to June 4 through 7, 2020.
"From the beginning, our team at MegaCon Orlando has followed the recommendations made by the CDC and the Florida Department of Health. In light of this, and with the help of our partners at Orange County Convention Center and Visit Orlando, our team has been able to move MegaCon Orlando," they said.
All tickets already purchased, including Photo Ops and Special Event tickets, have been automatically transferred to the new dates and your existing QR codes are still valid.

"We're super dedicated to delivering the ultimate fan experience and are working with all guests to confirm their availability," MegaCon said. "Be on the watch for updates as appearances are confirmed. If your favorite guest can't make it, or you can't, it's alright. You will receive a refund."
