AFA Singapore 2020 moves Online and It's Free to View.


SOZO Pte Ltd, the organiser of (AFA) Anime Festival Asia, has announced the cancellation of C3AFA Singapore 2020 physical event this year.  AFA Singapore has been taking place mainly at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre for the past 12 years since 2008.

This decision has been made due to the current COVID-19 situation and related restrictions, both locally and regionally.  Last year, C3AFA Singapore 2019 gathered over 120,000 attendees, when it was held in late November.  In 2019, C3AFA Singapore was awarded the Best Leisure Event in Singapore by the Singapore Tourism Board for its 2018 edition.

AFA (Anime Festival Asia) in Singapore has been held without fail since 2008, becoming an iconic event for all Japanese Pop Culture lovers in Singapore and the region to look forward to every year. 
With such strong interests and following by the region’s Japanese pop culture lovers in mind, we have decided to launch a free to view online festival - AFA Singapore 2020 Online, on the first weekend of December 2020. The event will be featuring exclusive contents from invited guests and merchandise from partner brands. While the physical experience of Anime Festival Asia as we have all come to know may not be fully replicated, we hope that the spirit of the event will live on online.  
We hope many in the region will also tune in to this event online. We look forward to meeting all our customers and stakeholders online instead this year, and hope to see continued support from everyone, as we all stand in solidarity towards a brighter future together.

 -Shawn Chin, the event’s Festival Director and Managing Director of SOZO Pte Ltd.
