Like you, we are saddened to hear about the postponement of ECCC and the cancelation of events like CMON and SXSW. These are major events that have some lasting impact not only on gaming at large, but also on the companies, artists, and vendors who attend, as well as the staff who run them.
At this point, GameStorm is still going to occur. We are less than 2% of the size of ECCC and over 90% of our attendance is local. Our demographics are different enough that we do not believe the convention needs to cancel.
That being said we are going absolutely taking precautions. We are still working our sources for hand sanitizer stations and will be working throughout the day to keep all areas clean. We will also be relying on you, our loyal members, to help us keep everything as clean and safe as possible.
That said, if you do decide you would feel safer staying home, we understand. You can contact our registration team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to assist. (Your hotel and travel, unfortunately, we cannot help with)
If you do come, we promise a great time as always
Be safe, be careful, and have fun!
