IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SHOCK STOCK 2020 AND THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK
As a precautionary measure in response to the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure the health and safety of our patrons, artists, vendors, guests, staff, and volunteers, the Shock Stock 2020 event is moving to the Aug 14-16 weekend of 2020, with all changes effective immediately.
At this time, ticket holders and room bookings for the May event have the following options:
- Your booking/ticket is automatically moved to the Aug 2020 weekend. Ticket and / or booking remains valid, and no changes on your part are required.
- A credit can be issued to be used towards mail-in autograph services, or convention goods, if you wish to receive autographs from the attending guests and / or some of the wares available at the show and cannot attend the new dates. This is something we are currently working on in detail, and more information will be available to you upon request.
- You can request a partial, or full refund for your ticket / room booking if you are unable to attend the August event combined with the credit if you wish for a partial refund.
As a small, independently run event, we ask for your support during this time of crisis and that you consider taking the full or partial credit option if you can’t make the event rather than cancel outright. I understand our economic status isn’t the best right now, but many of our vendors are also seeing this hit and we want to work on making this event as successful for them as well. Our team has been working hard over the past few weeks on a resolution that will keep the show alive, as well as create a successful and safe environment for the vendors, guests, and fans as well.
We apologize to those who wanted this announcement to come sooner, and though we feel a responsibility to do our part to protect the health and safety of our community; we wanted to ensure that all the pieces were in place to guarantee to everyone that we were NOT cancelling, or postponing indefinitely. We did not want to leave questions unanswered.
As for guests, we are currently working with agents to retain as many of our previously announced guests as possible, and will be working to add additional guests and attractions to make the August 2020 Anniversary show even better.
Thank you everyone for your understanding, and please stay safe during these troubled times.
– The Shock Stock Family
