No Conventions

Second prediction for 2021:  No conventions until third quarter or 2021   

No Major Conventions for 2021—The same problem affecting Organized Play will likely preclude any large conventions until next year.  Lining up convention space, getting guests and organizing lodging and events takes a lot of organization  and again, given that  1) conventions do not want to have an outbreak of COVID-19 during their event and 2) we are not likely to see the virus under control until summer, which is prime gaming and comic convention season, I doubt we will see large events take place. However, I would not be surprised to see comparatively small local and regional events attracting a few hundred to a thousand or so  take place. Speaking from experience, it is possible to pull together a small convention with a couple of months lead time.  https://icv2.com/articles/columns/view/46244/rolling-initiative-how-host-convention-during-epidemic  However, I would expect the organizers to take quite a few precautions in order to keep attendees safe and we will  probably see these continue until 2022. https://icv2.com/articles/columns/view/46290/rolling-initiative-how-host-gaming-convention-during-epidemic
