Well, they tried. The organizers initially tried postponing Phoenix Fan Fusion from May to September earlier in the year with the hopes that things would have turned around with COVID-19. Things haven’t exactly gotten better in Arizona and today it was announced that Phoenix Fan Fusion 2020 will not happen.
Also worth noting is that it looks like they are eliminating the Thursday in 2021 as well as the dates are May 28 – 30, 2021. I actually liked attending on Thursday as the crowds were always drastically smaller, making it easier to take my time through the exhibit hal.
It’s understandable and we can all look forward to a good time (hopefully) when it returns in 2021. If you have already purchased badges for 2020, those will rollover to the 2021 convention. Part of the statement:
“If you have already purchased passes for our 2020 event, they will automatically transfer to the 2021 dates. You won’t need to do a thing. If you are unable to make the 2021 dates you can transfer the passes free of charge to a friend or family member who can, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to donate them to a worthwhile organization or roll them over to our 2022 event, scheduled for May 27-29, 2022.
Those who have purchased booth or table space for the 2020 event will have their booth or table purchases automatically transferred to the 2021 dates. They will receive additional information by email.
The complimentary Buddy Pass received when buying a Full Event or VIP pass will be honored for May 28, 2021.
If you booked a hotel room at the Sheraton or Renaissance, they will process a batch cancellation of all reservations for September. The Embassy Suites will contact guests to see if they want their reservation canceled or moved to 2021. We are waiting word from the Hyatt and Hilton Garden Inn on their process and will send updates as soon as we have them.
As much as we hope all of you will join us in 2021, we know there will be some people unable to attend. Please contact us at email@example.com with additional concerns so we may address them directly and confidently.”
