CinemaCon 2020 Canceled Due to Coronavirus

CinemaCon 2020, the annual event held by The National Association of Theatre Owners, has been canceled. The announcement was made last night.

Originally, NATO had stated that they were still going ahead with the vent, despite fears over the coronavirus. Below is a statement from the organization.

It is with great regret we are announcing the cancellation of CinemaCon 2020.  Each spring, motion picture exhibitors, distributors and industry partners from around the world meet in Las Vegas to share information and celebrate the moviegoing experience. This year, due to the travel ban from the European Union, the unique travel difficulties in many other areas of the world and other challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, a significant portion of the worldwide motion picture community is not able to attend CinemaCon. While local outbreaks vary widely in severity, the global circumstances make it impossible for us to mount the show that our attendees have come to expect. After consultation with our attendees, trade show exhibitors, sponsors, and studio presenters, NATO has decided therefore to cancel CinemaCon 2020. We look forward to continuing the 10-year tradition of presenting the largest movie theater convention in the world and joining our attendees in future celebrations of the moviegoing experience.

CinemaCon was scheduled for March 30-April 2 in Las Vegas.
