covid-19 FAQ for visitors
The Dutch government has decided to no longer allow events with more than 100 visitors to take place in the Netherlands until March 31. Because of this we are forced to move Heroes Dutch Comic Con.
The corona virus has a huge impact on the events industry and in this case specifically on Heroes Dutch Comic Con. We organize events where more than 40,000 people are attending per edition to share their passion, make new friendships, meet special guests and buy all kinds of merchandise items. In addition, more and more (international) exhibitors are experiencing logistical problems and are therefore currently unable to participate. It is practically not possible to continue as usual with Heroes Dutch Comic Con on the initially planned date, without drastically sacrificing the quality of the show.
We have looked for alternative dates that is as far away as possible, but not being too close to the date of winter edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con. We are also depending on the alternative dates that were offered by Jaarbeurs Utrecht. Of course we hope that the event can continue on the new dates, but if this is not the case, we will look into the alternatives once again.
