Sozo Pte Ltd, the organizer of Anime Festival Asia (AFA), announced the cancellation of C3AFA Singapore 2020 physical event this year.
The organizer will launch a free to view online event on December 5-6.
“Due to the ongoing travel and regulatory restrictions for large scale events, we have decided that holding C3AFA Singapore this year is not sustainable for both our customers and stakeholders. It is with much regret that we have to cancel C3AFA Singapore 2020.” Sozo said in their press release.
“With such strong interests and following by the region’s Japanese pop culture lovers in mind, we have decided to launch a free to view online festival – AFA Singapore 2020 Online, on the first weekend of December 2020,” they added.
The event will feature exclusive contents from invited guests and merchandise from partner brands. Information on the guests will be announced at a later date.
Sozo, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, held online events such as AFA United last April and AFA Station two months ago.
