Anime Milwaukee (AMKE) convention chair Timothy Huesmann has announced on the convention’s official website that Anime Milwaukee 2021 will not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He stated that the staff of the convention will arrange interactive virtual events for the weekend the three-day event was planned to take place. The event was originally scheduled for February 2021.
Huesmann noted that while it would be possible to host the convention in Spring 2021, the current state of the pandemic would prohibit them from hosting it on the same scale. He added the convention plans to hold a physical event in 2022.
The convention had not opened registrations for the event, but attendees who had won Anime Milwaukee 2021 badges at this year’s event will have their badges roll over to 2022.
