Scene News: Supanova Comic Con Gaming Cancels Its Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth November 2020 Events

The Supanova Team have worked tirelessly to create an opportunity for our fans to gather together and celebrate their fandoms as a community. Unfortunately, COVID-19 restrictions across the country have not eased to the point where we can viably guarantee our originally scheduled and rescheduled November 2020 events. Therefore, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel Supanova 2020 – Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

At this stage, Supanova 2020 – Sydney, is still scheduled for 5-6 December. As events are starting to resume in New South Wales, such as Sydney’s Annual Wedding Expo and the NRL Grand Final, along with the slow but steady relaxation of border restrictions along the East Coast, we are continuing to work with the Sydney Showground towards December. As always, we will be adhering to the advice of the NSW Chief Medical Officer, and it’s for this reason we will continue to not have tickets on sale until such time as we are able to guarantee that the event will proceed.

This year has been extremely difficult for the events industry, and there’s nothing we’d like more than to be celebrating all the fun, festivities and fandom that Supanova has to offer, so we thank you all for your continued patience and understanding. We hope that the next time we send a Media Release, it will be to detail all the awesome things coming to our December 2020 show and beyond, with our 2021 calendar returning to Supanova’s usual schedule of April (Melbourne and Gold Coast), June (Sydney and Perth) and November (Brisbane and Adelaide).

Supanova is a celebration of fandom, where the worlds of film and television, fantasy, comic books, anime, sci-fi, cartoons, books, gaming and collectables comes to life! There’s something for everyone, including ‘cosplay’ (costume-role play), fan clubs, musical performances, creative master classes, celebrity Q&As, wrestling, tournaments, competitions and an expo full of shopping possibilities.

Supanova Comic Con & Gaming began in Sydney in 2002 as a completely home-grown Australian production showcasing sci-fi, fantasy, comic books, anime, manga, games, cosplay and much more. The brainchild of Founder & Event Director, Daniel Zachariou, Supanova is run by a diverse and passionate team of independent professionals with backgrounds in private industry and the creative sector. Supanova takes place in six cities (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast), and is Australia’s leading and largest event of its kind 

Supanova is a celebration of pop culture created by the Supanova family, for your family, to “bring out the inner geek” in fans of all ages.
