We have placed a deposit to hold the date for the yearly ECSS, but with the uncertainty of events we are waiting to see how things go until NOV 1st to make a informed decision on whether to go for it this year or hold off to safeguard the health of the attendees (We want to do it, but also care about the people coming) so lets hope and we will let you know

It's not so much the conference, but the Red Room and going out to eat is where we are likely to be more at risk because it's harder to maintain social distance. I work at a prison during the day, a hospital during the evening and my theater as been open every weekend all summer long. At the prison and hospital I stay masked and at the theater we try to maintain distance. I have not eaten out very much and have not gone out for social drinking. Yet, the Red Room and the dinners with friends is what I enjoy most about ECSS. How can a group of friend enjoy drinks and conversation safely? Maybe there will be a rapid over the counter Covid test that uses saliva that will be available by January and we can create our own ECSS bubble.

Stay safe everyone,

Doc Barnes

Luc,
we've tossed around the idea of a virtual concept (like we just did with Bizarre Hauntings) I personally don't know that the core base of ECSS performers are that into the Virtual scenario (I myself don't choose to do Virtual or Zoom shows, they just aren't my passion)
Others Like David Parr and Vince Wilson do a great job with them (I chose to only do a Q&A for Bizarre Hauntings as my segment)
I think one of the great draws to ECSS is the camaraderie, the chatting in person, the catching up in the dealers room and don't know if virtual translates that well.
But we also don't want to roll the dice with anyone's health, so we will have to keep an eye out and see

Vlad, thanks for your response.

Live is certainly the better way to go. But as our famous soccer player Johan Cruyff used to say: 'every disadvantage has its advantage'. For me personally (and maybe others, too), it would be a way to join this time, since it is usually hard to arrange for me to cross the pond. Smile

Cheers, Luc.

I appreciate the hope but the reality is there will be no ECSS this year. I am not interested in online/virtual.

If there is no ECSS, I'm making contingency plans for Bizarre Hauntings.

RCP the option of a Virtual convention isn't at this point in talks (unlike Bizarre Hauntings that had Vince ala Wizard of Oz running all the stuff behind the scenes the demographic of attendees to ECSS doesn't really side with that)
but till November he have not given up the idea of still having something in person so wouldn't say it's a reality yet

Just to make sure everyone heard,
we are holding off on an ECSS this year (with people traveling from all over and the uncertainty of health and or restrictions) we could put a deposit down and worry about too many what if's , there is no plan for a virtual convention as one of the big parts of the convention is the live in person time,
so stay safe and we will see you in 2022

Just a mention of reassurance Neither Bizarre Hauntings nor ECSS plans on stopping we will as soon as inhumanly possible be back to bringing you a dose of nightmares and spooky goodies from our deeply beloved and demented dealers
see you then

Smart decision. I'm sure the 2022 session will be epic. Looking forward to seeing everyone at ECSS VII!
