GENERAL QUESTIONS

WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE PHYSICAL CRUNCHYROLL EXPO 2020 SHOW?

We are very sad to announce that Crunchyroll Expo, at least in its usual physical form, will not take place this year.  The health and safety of our fans, attendees, exhibitors, guests, and staff is our number one priority and given the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 virus, we believe this is the right decision.

We are happy to announce that Crunchyroll Expo 2021 will be held on August 6-8, 2021 at the San Jose Convention Center.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BE ON THE CRUNCHYROLL EXPO CREW?

There will be no Crew for V-CRX 2020. However, Crew applications for the 2021 Crunchyroll Expo will be posted Summer of 2021.

WHAT IF I HAD A HOTEL RESERVATION FOR THE PHYSICAL SHOW?

All hotel reservations for the 2020 in-person Crunchyroll Expo should already have been cancelled by the hotels.

If you have any additional questions about your hotel reservations, we recommend reaching out directly to the hotel your reservation is for, or contacting customer service through the confirmation received when originally booking.

Unfortunately, the refund request window for Crunchyroll Expo 2020 has ended. If you already requested a refund, please allow at least 30 days for processing.
