With the world in flux at this time we just wanted to make clear our plans for this years Summer LFCC and Winter LCC and bring you all up to date with where we are as a company and how things are going in general.
First off we plan to run London Film and Comic Con on July 24th, 25th and 26th. We will be keeping an eye on the spread of the virus over the next weeks ahead and will keep you informed of any changes. We should hopefully know where we are all at by the end of May or beginning of June.
We will say,however, that this Summers LFCC will have a reduced footprint as some of the film releases that we had planned to have at the event have been moved and some of the other activities we had planned would need a greater run in time than we will have had this year. This means we will not need as much space as previous years. Also, other events that are held in the same venue are needing help to change their earlier dates, so giving up some of the rooms we use to help others just seemed to be the right thing to do this year!
We had planned to announce at this years LFCC Summer our winter date for London Comic Con 2020, but with all the rearranging of dates going on we feel it’s better to announce this event now so other events can avoid it! So London Comic Con Winter will be held on 21st & 22nd of November at Olympia and we plan it to be a big event with some of the big film activities we had planned to bring to LFCC in the summer now moving to our winter event in Nov! So there is lots to still look forward to, the web page and facebook page will be live soon.
We want you all to know that Showmasters is in a good solid place! We are a stable and sensible company so we will be with you through this and afterwards. All our main office staff are still employed and they will be until this passes. They have all been sent home to protect themselves but they are all ready to get going as soon as it’s safe and sensible to do so. The thing that makes us very different from many of the big events companies, and we think is one of our biggest assets, is we are all dedicated fans! We don't run Showmasters and Massive Events to just make lots of money. We do it to meet the guests we want to meet and run amazing events we can all be proud of and share with other fans.
So, we very much look forward to celebrating with you the passing of these harsh times with some incredible guests announcement as soon as we are all in the clear! We have been talking to guests that we have wanted to bring to our events and as filming has stopped now and these productions will take much longer to get going again than normal due to the lack of studio stages, it is looking very promising and we are working to lock down some of the guests ASAP, so that will be exciting and give us all something to look forward to on the guest front.
So our message to you is stay safe, take care of your family and we will see you all soon where we can once again create some fun times and amazing memories together.
Take really good care of yourself and your loved ones.
Jason and the Showmasters family
