Phoenix Fan Fusion 2020 canceled

Phoenix Fan Fusion 2020 has reversed course, canceling its rescheduled Sept. 25-27, 2020, event — originally set for Memorial Day Weekend — due to the lingering effects of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

“Considering the current degree of uncertainty about when mass gatherings can resume, watching the rising cases of COVID-19 in Arizona, and after consulting with the Phoenix Convention Center and City of Phoenix officials, we will not be holding our September 25-27, 2020 convention,” Square Egg Entertainment conventions organizers said in a June 29 statement.

“While we are as disappointed as we know you are, we feel this is the best option, as the safety and well-being of our attendees and participants is of utmost concern to us,” said Square Egg CEO Matt Solberg. “We are a Phoenix-based, locally owned, small business and we understand that our success is because of you.”

Phoenix Fan Fusion’s next iteration is now scheduled for May 28-30, 2021, at the Phoenix Convention Center. We’ll see if the masses can cooperate this time and allow that to happen …

“In almost 20 years of operation we have never had to postpone this event, and we hope you know how much we wanted to avoid this decision,” Square Egg Entertainment convention organizers said March 25 when rescheduling from the customary May dates. “Considering the current degree of uncertainty, and after consulting with the Phoenix Convention Center and City of Phoenix officials, we feel this is the best option, as the safety and well-being of our attendees and participants is of utmost concern to us.

The event will remain at its usual location, the Phoenix Convention Center. Passes already purchased for Fan Fusion 2020 event will automatically transfer to the new dates, Square Egg said: “If you are unable to make the 2021 dates you can transfer the passes free of charge to a friend or family member who can, or contact us at eva@square-egg.com to donate them to a worthwhile organization or roll them over to our 2022 event, scheduled for May 27-29, 2022.”

Fan Fusion 2020 organizers are working with agents for their guest line up as well as panelists, booth vendors and entertainment, and working with host hotels to determine how existing hotel reservations will be handled.

Although Square Egg’s signature event is usually Memorial Day Weekend, it has held smaller late fall and early winter Fan Fest events before discontinuing them to focus on the spring/summer Phoenix Comicon, which it later renamed Phoenix Comic Fest and ultimately Phoenix Fan Fusion.
