Because of the nationwide ban for major events until at least October 30th, 2020 MAG can’t take place in its usual form.
COVID-19 doesn’t change the fact, that the MAG will be of course celebrating Games, Cosplay, Anime, Manga und Asian Popculture for 3 days: This is why MAG 2020, from October 2nd to October 4th, will be happening fully online as an interactive Multiplayer-Event, in which we invite you to explore your creativity. With MAG Online you can, more than ever, become a direct part of the MAG, which always has been a Community-Event from fans for fans. Join us to dive deeper into the world of Games, Cosplay, Anime, Manga and Asian Popculture.
At the virtual booths exhibitors can showcase their newest products and profit from exclusive possibilities such as Sales-Events. The online world of MAG 2020 will await you with lots of surprises, which you can discover with your own avatar.
Of course we will provide you with an exiting and diverse live-program via livestream for all everyone who enjoys Games, Creators and exclusive premieres. The fangress will also come back with numerous workshops, panels and Q&As.
We are also working on making it possible to get some of the live-content on stage in Erfurt, which we will flexibly be adjusting to the guidelines, that apply to the events in early October – This will be of course also live streamed. Specific details for the program and a first trailer will be shared with you in the upcoming weeks and months. „A part of the stage-program and more highlights should take place in Erfurt – and certainly will be broadcasted for everyone”, announces CEO of MEsse Erfurt Michael Kynast. A first trailer is in the works, which reveals more specific details to the program.
Antje Kreuger, project manager at Messe Erfurt: “We work with full speed on a solution for already purchased visitor-tickets. Visitors, who can’t make it to Erfurt this year and want to get a refund, are of course able to do so. They will get the full price refunded. Details on the process will be shared shortly. The MAG team will present you with a good solution.”
