Abunai! 2020 postponed to 2021

Apr 21, 2020 | Contests

It is with immense grief and sorrow that we announce the following:

Abunai! 2020: The Good, The Bad and the Cheeky will be postponed to 2021. The new planned date of the 18th edition of the Abunai! convention is the last weekend of August 2021, 27-29 August 2021. 

The Government of the Netherlands has announced that all large-scale events planned up until September 1, 2020 are forbidden to take place. Our 2020 event which was to take place August 28-30 has to be postponed, as decided by the Government of the Netherlands. 

We do not regret trying until the end. We had hoped our convention would be something to look forward to in these trying times. Alas, it was not to be. This was not the happiness we desired for you. 

As we’ve previously stated, your ticket can either be cancelled or will automatically be valid for the new date. You can choose to cancel your ticket by logging into your account, clicking on ‘Orders’ and then clicking on the ‘Refund’ button. Refunds are done automatically and may take up to a week. After you’ve clicked the refund button, your request will be processed the next working day at the latest, and it may take 1-3 working days for the money to be in your bank account. 

If you wish for your ticket to be valid for Abunai! 2021, you do not need to take any action. Your received invoice/ticket, even if it states 2020, will be valid for our 2021 date. Tickets will remain on sale and valid for the new date.

Our various teams will be in touch with those involved, such as dealers/artists, event organisers, etc. Please expect an e-mail with specific information related to your situation shortly. 

If you have any specific questions and wish to reach out: If you signed up for one of our competitions, please get in touch with your Abunai! contact.  If you applied to be part of our events programme, our Game Room, etc., please get in touch with your Abunai! contact. If you applied for our dealer room or artist alley, please contact our Dealer Team for further information. If you applied for a gopher position, please contact our gopher manager.

There is hope. We will meet again. We will continue our hard work to organise a convention worthy of your grace and hope to continue to inform you of our 2021 convention’s programming in the following months.
