Today, Game On Expo announced via their Facebook page that their August 2021 convention has been cancelled and will return August 5 – 7, 2022. The full post from Facebook:

To The Amazing Gaming Community,

@gameonexpo 2021 dates have moved, and Game On Expo will be held August 5th to 7th, 2022 at the Phoenix Convention Center. These new dates will allow us to plan for the best show possible for our attendees, vendors, guests, and staff. We really wanted to run Game On Expo in 2021, and have waited for the vaccine rollout to make the decision, but the current status with COVID, and the uncertainty of the Phoenix Convention Center’s requirements and restrictions made the decision for us. Our absolute goal is to run a fun family friendly safe event, and we felt that trying to run an event this year simply wouldn’t have been the same experience that our attendees, vendors, and everyone involved would have expected. We took a safer date that allows us to plan for the best show possible without restrictions, and that is both fun and safe. We also want all our attendees, guests, tournament providers and vendors and exhibitors to be comfortable and feel safe supporting and attending Game On Expo. Game On Expo will now be held August 5th to 7th, 2022

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding, and since the date is being pushed back again, we feel that the right thing to do is offer a full refund to those of you who purchased passes back in 2020. For those that choose this option we hope to see you all back in the future! For those that choose to keep their passes, we’re offering all badge holders for Game On Expo 2020 to upgrade their pass to VIP for Game On Expo 2022 at no additional cost. You don’t need to do anything on your part to use this option, and you’ll be receiving more information about this upgrade closer to Game On Expo 2022.We’ll be opening up both passes and vendor sign ups for Game On Expo 2022 starting after September of this year to help avoid any confusions on the year of the event. We hope you are all well, and we look forward to seeing you all at Game On Expo 2022!Game on! -The Game On Expo Team”
