March 12, 2020 — It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of Terminal City Tabletop Convention 2020. With the recent declaration from the World Health Organization that COVID-19 is a pandemic, and the recommendations from the B.C. Provincial Health Officer to maintain social distance, we feel this is the best decision for the health and safety of our TCTC community.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and support these last few weeks as we monitored the situation and figured out our options.
The next Terminal City Tabletop Convention will be March 27 and 28, 2021. All tickets, vendors spaces, and sponsorships will be held over for next year. We are able to process refunds if you are unable to hold over. For tickets, please request a refund through Eventbrite. For vendors and sponsors, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We know this decision will have an impact on our Proto-Alley participants, our vendors, and our charity fundraising efforts. We’ll continue to feature them on our social media channels in the coming weeks. We encourage everyone to take some time to visit their websites and send some support their way.
We are working on an online convention for March 28 and 29, so stay tuned for more information.
Thank you again for being such a supportive TCTC community. Stay safe and healthy. See you next year!
Friday, March 6 — We’ve received inquiries regarding TCTC2020 and the coronavirus. The TCTC organizing team are proactively monitoring the situation, as the wellbeing of everyone at our event is a priority for us.
Both the Public Health Agency of Canada and the BC Centre for Disease Control (BC CDC) state that the risk of spread of the virus in BC and Canadian communities is low at this time.
We are reminding everyone to follow the BC CDC’s recommendations for hygiene. These includes:
- Proper hand-washing for at least 20 seconds using soap and water.
- Alcohol-based hand rubs to clean hands if they are not visibly soiled. TCTC will have hand sanitizer available at the venue for use.
- Do not touch your face/eyes/mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow.
- Do not share food or beverages with another person.
- Stay at home if you are sick.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update you if required.
