CybFest NW 2020
Kent, Wa -- June 15, 2020 --
The CybFest NW organizers have been discussing the current situation with
the lockdown and weighing options regarding the likelihood of having
businesses sufficiently opened in time for CybFest NW this year. While we
are very glad to see gradual progress being made toward fully opening up
the economy, there is a very real possibility that King County (where
CybFest NW is held) will still not have made sufficient progress for
CybFest NW to be held in person. Therefore, we have decided to move
CybFest NW 2020 to an all-virtual show. It's not all bad news, though,
because this year CybFest NW will take place over both Saturday AND
Sunday! The free CybFest NW 2020 livestream will be active on August 1st
and 2nd from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..
There are many aspects to CybFest NW, from the dealer room to the contests, panels, and raffles. However, the most important aspect for us is the thing that started the very first CybCon many years ago: the local Transformers community here in the Pacific Northwest. To that end, we have decided on a plan for this year's convention that places the local community at the forefront. We have a streaming schedule, and we want to invite the community to help us fill it. Do you want to have a live dealer show and show off what you were planning to sell at this year's CybFest NW? Do you have an idea for a panel or roundtable discussion that you would like to host? Do you want to get together with some of your artist friends for a livestream? We'll have sign-ups available later this week. To best gauge demand, we will first open sign-up to our local dealers on Thursday 6/18 followed by other activities a couple of days later on Saturday 6/20. Of course, we will be including many of our traditional contests in the schedule, so stay tuned for details on how those will be handled. All spots will be free of charge and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
We are certainly disappointed about not getting to see everyone in person again this year, but we are very excited about this plan and still being able to interact with everyone again in August. Plus, based on what we learn, this will open some new ways to get the CybFest NW community together throughout the year. The challenges of this year will just lead to you all seeing more of us in the future.
Stay well, stay safe, and we can't wait to "see" all of you in August!
