SaikouCon 2020 Pre-Registration is now CLOSED!



With heavy hearts we are forced to announce that SaikouCon 2020 has been postponed until 2021. The Mountain Laurel Resort and Spa was forced by the latest mandate from the state of Pennsylvania released today to cancel our 2020 contract to host SaikouCon in their facility earlier today, July 15, as all events statewide have been cut back to having no more than 25 people in the face of the massive increase in Covid-19 infections in Pennsylvania since July 1. Within the next week to two weeks the resort will be issuing us a new contract for August of 2021 after they have confirmed which of our requested weekends are clear and have no other events at the resort at the same time. To make up for being forced to postpone the 2020 convention so close to what was supposed to be showtime, all pre-registered attendee tickets will roll over to SaikouCon 2021 and SaikouCon 2022, two years for the price of one, as will as tickets that were prizes from our 2019 cosplay contests and the couple of giveaways earlier this year that were hosted here on SaikouCon.com. Free SaikouCon 2021 t-shirts will also be given to all those that pre-registered for SaikouCon 2020; t-shirts will be given at Badge Pick Up at SaikouCon 2021 so you can pick out the shirt design/shirt color you want, one t-shirt per badge holder. Registered Merchants for 2020 will also have their registrations honored for both SaikouCon 2021 and SaikouCon 2022, no need to apply again, no rejurying process, just two years of vending with us for the price of one. Registered Merchants will also be included in a SaikouCon hosted Cyber Merchant Hall in September of this year (working on how we will facilitate this over the rest of this week, once we work it out our con chair will be sending emails to our merchants to get them set up) and Cyber Holiday Otaku Market the first weekend of December 2020. Volunteer Staff Applicants, Press Applicants, and Panelists will have to apply again when applications and panel submissions for SaikouCon 2021 and SaikouCon 2022 open respectively to be assessed as normal for those years. We are truly sorry this has happened so close to showtime, we were looking forward to seeing everyone in 2020 and showing people how to have fun while being safe in the face of the Covid-19 Pandemic. 
Once our dates for SaikouCon 2021 are confirmed, new registration confirmation messages will go out to all pre-registered attendees and registered merchants; following SaikouCon 2021 the SaikouCon 2022 registration confirmation letters will go out to all as well. We will not have our 2022 dates until after the conclusion of SaikouCon 2021 as any other normal year would roll out. Normal pre-registration has now been closed and will open for SaikouCon 2021 this October so there is no confusion that SaikouCon 2020 has been postponed.
Again, we are sorry this is happening, we really thought we would still be able to party this year, but the state is correct in rolling back the Green Phase rules to Yellow Phase rules as numbers continue to climb higher and higher in Pennsylvania. Please wear your masks, wash your hands regularly with soap, maintain your six foot social distance from people you don't live with. Stay safe, stay healthy and we'll be in touch with everyone in the coming days with all of the above info.
All Our Love,
The Staff of SaikouCon



  • Badges (tickets) are NOT SENT OUT IN ADVANCE OF THE SHOW, PayPal asks for a billing/shipping address on all transactions as a matter of identity confirmation so we can't turn it off. We do not send badges to prevent pre-show badge loss and keep registration fees as low as possible by eliminating shipping costs.

  • 2020 UPDATE: In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and how almost everyone's income has been affected by the quarantines across the US, we will not be instituting the 20% price jump on Pre-Registration General Admission Badges to attend SaikouCon 2020 that is usually set four months out from our showtime. Please note this price increase will be restored to our normal Pre-Registration practices in 2021.
    Effective April 3, 2020 at 6 PM ET, General Admission Badges, both 3 Day and 1 Day (Friday or Saturday) Badges will have a 20% rate increase, VIP Badges will not be effected by the General Admission price jump, there will be no other price jumps during the 2020 pre-registration period.
