LACC planners are looking to hold the first major in-person convention in the state of California since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic (see "Anime Expo Canceled"). Organizers have put forth a plan to keep their attendees safe, which includes utilizing the entire 1.2 million square feet of the convention center to spread out guests, dealers, and staff out as much as possible. The convention will also feature a split schedule that will be divided into two five-hour sessions with deep-cleaning of surfaces happening before, after, and in-between sessions.
Additionally, the convention will limit the number of tickets sold for single sessions, and still stream panels for people who still require virtual con experiences. VIP Tickets are scheduled to go on sale for this event on September 29.
