Good idea, Richard!

At present, Ad Astra in Toronto (May 1-3, 2020) still tentatively plans to go ahead.

Yes, the Toronto Comic Con that was to be on March 20-22 is the one cancelled.

Thanks for this, Richard. I am doing this at my "day job" as the de facto sports editor. It's a tsunami of info. Bad info, yes. But things people need to know.

*dry cough*

I wasn't correcting the list. I was adding to the list. Sorry if there was any confusion. I am involved with Ad Astra. The board had just sent a message confirming that, for now, it is still happening. It is an entirely different event from Comic Con.

I am awaiting word on Michigan's Penguicon (April 24-26)-- the board is virtually meeting this weekend and may have a decision.

I mainly addressed the conventions that were scheduled for the remainder of March. There were several cons that were scheduled for the first weekend of March that I assume went ahead as scheduled. The Mole (Hulk?) convention in Mexico City sounded like it was unaffected. I'll be following up on the ones that said they were in the process of deciding. As we get deeper into March I'll start checking on cons scheduled for April. 

All-Con in Dallas, Texas, was to be March 11-15. It actually began, but was forced to close on March 13.

Manga-Comic-Con 2020 scheduled for March 12-15 in Leipzig, Germany, has been cancelled.

The Supanova Comic and Gaming Expo in Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia, scheduled for March 13-14 appears to have proceeded as scheduled.

The Big Frederick Gaming Convention, aka BFGcon, in Frederick, Maryland, scheduled for March 13-15 has been cancelled.

The Browncoat Waystation Science Fiction Convention scheduled for March 13-15 at The Queen Mary, Long Beach, California, has been postponed to next year.
