WizKids Cancels Q2 & Q3 Public Appearances

Staying home and not gathering in groups larger than 10 is a key way that we can ease the strain on the doctors and nurses during this outbreak. Obviously, that means no big gaming conventions. WizKids has announced that they're cancelling all of their public appearances during both Q2 and Q3 of this year in order to do their part.

From the post:

Hello WizKids Fans,

The safety and well-being of our players, staff, business partners and their families is of the utmost importance, as such we have made the difficult decision to cancel all upcoming trade and consumer events during Q2 and Q3 2020. This cancellation notice includes both Origins Game Fair and UK Games Expo. We feel this is a necessary and responsible step. As we will no longer be attending Origins Game Fair, we are currently discussing options for the status for our WizKids U.S. National Championships and will follow up with a separate announcement in the coming weeks.

We understand that things are changing rapidly all the time, and should it make sense and is safe to do so, we will consider attending events during the Q2-Q3 timeframe but with a smaller footprint than you are normally used to seeing from us. If so, we will post when and where these events may be held.

At this time, we are still planning to attend our regularly attended Q4 events. This includes The WizKids World Championships at Graceland, PAX Unplugged, BGG Con and more. Keep an eye on WizKids.com for the latest news about our event schedule. We look forward to seeing you all later this year!

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this trying time.
