Our Greatest Concern is the Safety of Our Community
At its core the Atlanta Science Fiction and Fantasy Expo is a labor of love by fans for fans. As the Expo grows, we have been able to keep the event admission free through the generous support of our volunteer staff, event partners, and vendors. We all love the community we have built together and are committed to the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved. In the last twenty-four hours, there has been increased focus on the role public gatherings could play in transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Many of you reached out to express your concerns and inquire about our plans for this weekend. Although we have established revised sanitation and engagement protocols for the Expo, we decided to seek direct consultation from professionals familiar with the virus and its spread in the Metro Atlanta area. We have been advised social distancing is an increasingly necessary and key component to reducing further transmission. Based on these discussions and an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s event.
Our combined efforts have created an amazing experience for this year’s Expo and we are absolutely committed to hosting a 2020 event. We are already working with North DeKalb Mall and other show partners to secure alternate dates.
