Anime Expo 2021’s Physical Event Canceled, and Will Be a Virtual Event in July 2021 Instead

Ray Chiang, CEO of The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA), has announced that this year’s in-person Anime Expo convention has been canceled due to the COVID-19 situation. The 30th anniversary Anime Expo event was scheduled to take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on July 2-5, 2021.

The organizers will host the “Anime Expo Lite” virtual event during the July 4 weekend.

Badge holders who have rolled their registration over to the 2021 event will get priority access to registration for the 2022 event.
