AnimeNEXT has announced that it is cancelling its 2020 convention.
In their statement announcing the cancellation, the staff of AnimeNEXT said:
“After reviewing developments and the impact upon our host city, the Board of Directors of Universal Animation, Inc., the not-for-profit corporation that owns and operates AnimeNEXT, has decided to cancel AnimeNEXT 2020. This was not an easy decision as we take great pride in providing our community with a fun and innovative convention. After reviewing all of the options available and due to the paramount concerns for the health and safety of everyone involved in the convention cancellation was the most prudent course of action available.”
