Dear Budapest Comic Con Community!
We are sorry to announce that, despite all our efforts, we need to reschedule our Budapest Comic Con 2020 event scheduled for a later date.
The European spread of COVID-19 has resulted in official measures in recent weeks that we have not yet been able to resolve.
In Hungary, travel restrictions and bans on the epidemiological situation currently regulate the conditions of entry of non-Hungarian citizens into Hungary. We are constantly discussing the possibilities with the authorities, but so far we have not been able to find a solution that clearly guarantees that invited foreign guests (actors, cartoonists, illustrators, cosplayers) could travel to Hungary.
Budapest Comic Con is especially important to us, as we are organizing such an event for the first time in the country. Accordingly, we are working on a high-quality and truly memorable event, which is why it is inconceivable for us to hold the event without the participation of international guests. Budapest Comic Con without the guests would not be a real Budapest Comic Con for us either, as we would not be able to provide the quality that we originally planned.
Knowing these, we will postpone the date of Budapest Comic Con to August 14-15, 2021. We are confident that the epidemic situation will allow the event to be held safely by then. Tickets already redeemed are automatically valid for the 2021 event.
We are very sad that we have to postpone our event due to the situation and the measures that have been taken, but for us, your health is first and foremost, as it is for our customers, partners and colleagues.
Thank you for your understanding, we hope to see you at Budapest Comic Con at the new date!
If you have any questions regarding the registration, write us at [email protected]!

As we did earlier this spring, we are now asking you again to make a statement about your tickets. Our questionnaire serves the ticket holder to make a statement, separately for each ticket, which tickets would you like to use or compensate for the Budapest Comic Con to be held on 14-15 August 2021.
We would like to thank you for your patience, which is why we would like to please you with more extras. For our customers who accept that their ticket is still valid for next year’s event at a new time, we offer the following gifts:
