At Planet Comicon Kansas City, the safety, security, and health of our fans, guests, staff, and crew are our top priorities and we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely with our local partners and government officials in Kansas City. Currently, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Kansas City. No federal, state or local officials have issued any restrictions on attending public events. The City of Kansas City and the Kansas City Convention Center have stated that the convention center is currently operating normally, and events scheduled at the facility, including Planet Comicon Kansas City, are proceeding as planned.

We will continue to work in concert with the Kansas City Convention Center and follow the protocols and preparedness plans established by the Kansas City Health Department and emergency officials. We will also augment or modify our plans as necessary based on updated situational reports from those teams as new facts are made known.

We encourage all of our attendees to take care of their own health and protect their fellow fans by utilizing these valuable sources of information:

Since 1999, Planet Comicon Kansas City has been driven by our incredible fans to create a world far from the ordinary; a place, or in our case a Planet, that brings together all walks of life to celebrate fandoms of all types.

We look forward to continuing that tradition at Planet Comicon Kansas City 2020 (March 20-22) and for many years to come!
