Two notable events that bring close to 80,000 attendees to the Anaheim Convention Center have been canceled due to coronavirus concerns, with organizers looking to reschedule the respective events for the fall.
WonderCon, which involve industries related to comic books and graphic novels was slated for April 10 to 12. VidCon, for visual entertainment media and a fast-growing event that has expanded globally with events at other venues and typically draws attendees and presenters ranging from fans and YouTube personalities to Hollywood moguls and big corporate sponsors, was to be held June 17 to 20.
The two events are part of nearly two dozen meetings, shows and conferences that have been canceled or postponed at the convention center in recent weeks, starting with Natural Products Expo West in March.
