Nexus Game Fair 2021 is Canceled
After great deliberation, and with a sense of grave disappointment, we must announce the cancellation of Nexus Game Fair 2021.

This decision was not an easy one to make, and comes after intense consideration of the current and future state of the world. While COVID-19 is on the decline in Wisconsin, there are still several other areas of the country with active outbreaks and corresponding increases in cases. While vaccination efforts become more widespread with each passing day, there is still uncertainty in the process, and even for those eligible for immediate vaccination, the voluntary opt-in rate remains far lower than many would like to see.

Many large summer and early fall shows and events have re-scheduled for later this year, including Origins (originally scheduled for mid-June) and Gen Con (originally scheduled for early August) as a result of these very same considerations. Nexus is therefore either (1) put in the position of happening as scheduled, with a very short window to plan and execute the event, while at the same time ignoring the risks that resulted in many other shows postponing or canceling their events, or (2) postponing the event to later in the fall, which has become quite busy on the gaming calendar with many other shows all re-scheduling their events for the same time frame, with still no guarantee that fall events will be held as hoped.

The safety of our attendees and the overall quality of our show are prime concerns, and we feel both purposes are best served by canceling this year’s event and capitalizing on the additional planning time to ensure Nexus 2022 celebrates a grand re-opening of the convention at our new home at the Brookfield Conference Center.

All badges purchased for Nexus 2020 are still in our system and will be eligible to be transferred to Nexus 2022, or any future show.

Nexus 2022 is scheduled for June 23-26, 2022.
