I've received some questions about future Genii conventions.
Until there is a vaccine I do not see a way to put on a convention that is safe for attendees.
There is no possible way to do an in-person magic convention with social distancing.
Hotel ballrooms are not noted for their wonderful ventilation.
If you have one asymptomatic attendee spreading the virus--just one--that person could infect hundreds of attendees.
I, personally, will not be attending any magic convention until there is a vaccine.

A viable vaccine could take years. As long as people take basic precautions I don't believe attending a convention would be any more dangerous than shopping at the grocery store.

I believe you are wrong.

I'm hoping that an effective vaccine will be available sooner, rather than later. Also, when one does become available, I hope enough people get the vaccine!

PS-Richard, I would be very disappointed if the next Genii Convention was cancelled but I think it's better to be safe rather than sorry.
Just adding my 3 cents worth because anybody can add their 2 cents worth...

I’m reading headlines right now and it seems that a possible vaccine is getting closer.

Whether there will be a vaccine or not, does anyone have any updates of what's going to happen with conventions like Blackpool or The Session in the UK?

Thanks!

I guess it might be a bit early to answer that! 😅
