One More time

One More Time
One More Time we have to postpone Polymanga 2020 after August 2020 and April 2021. COVID-19 gives us no choice other than to postone the big convention to August, Thursday 12, Friday 13, Satuday 14, Sunday 15 2021 (last week of summer vacations for many attendees). It will still take place in Montreux 2m2c, Switzerland.

We wish to thank the SERAC, Montreux-Vevey Tourism, Montreux city, the Swiss Government, all exhibitors who accepted to keep their booth for Polymanga, all service providers who accepted to cancel or greatly decrease our debt toward them and, of course, both attendees who wished to support us by keeping polymanga tickets for the next edition. Thanks to the simultaneous support of these people and organizations, a strict limitation of expenditure and new innovative projects, we’re still there in 2021.

We’re summoning your kindness and understanding. To be perfectly clear, you will find our
FAQ below.Take care, congrats to everyone who help people in this difficult time and give love to each other. We will make it through hopefully stronger and benevolent.

Team Polymanga

Will Polymanga tickets for 2020 and April 2021 be valid in August 2021?
Yes. Just like what we did when we moved Polymanga in April 2021, we will activate all
Polymanga 2020 and April 2021 tickets so that they are valid in 2021. That’s honestly the option that helps us the most and that we humbly ask you to prioritize to support us. You will also keep your benefits included with the pass including lightsticks. The amount of tickets including the lightsticks were sold out. About a hundred are left after the refunds
request last month. So you can choose to keep your ticket to make sure to enjoy your
goodies in 2021. If you already asked your money back for your Polymanga 2020/2021 ticket, it has been cancelled right after you received your money back (obviously).

I have a one day ticket for Polymanga, how does it work ?
Every one-day ticket sold until now for Polymanga 2020 or 2021 will be valid for any day in August 2021. One-day tickets sold from January 11, 2021 will be valid based on the day for which you booked it (Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday).

Will the shows change ?
As much as possible, we wish that guests 2020 come back in 2021, just like many
other guests we didn’t have the chance to unveil because of the COVID-19 crisis. We
will contact them individually about it. Naturally, our goals for Polymanga 2020 will be
renewed for 2021: to make a pop culture convention full of kindness, without PET or
cans waste from drinks, with Polymanga water bottles provided and the price
reduction for drinks if you bring it, the pop culture charity versus on stage, a better
experience for all the attendees and all the activities and guests we couldn’t announce
because of the COVID-19 crisis. Let’s keep in touch on our social networks (Instagram, Tiktok, Facebook, Twitter: @polymanga )

What if I want a refund for my ticket?
It’s not the most helpful option, but that’s possible. All you need is to send us a request
by e-mail at zebillet@polymanga.com before the 10th of April 2021. We would like to
warmly thank attendees, because less than 10% asked us a refund after that we
moved the event from April to August 2020 and to April 2021. We sincerely hope it will be the same for the move to August 2021 and we deeply thank you for your support.

How can I help Polymanga ?
Just by keeping your ticket for the next Polymanga, by buying your ticket now for the next edition in August, by taking part to our social networks or twitch or simply by taking time to meet us at the Polymanga café in Lausanne.

What now ?
Now, we’re waiting for the next COVID decisions from the Swiss and regional government. As soon as we can open restaurants again, we will proceed to work in the time-limited Polymanga café, which takes place for season 2 in MAD Lausanne, after the huge success of season 1 in Montreux Forum. This action is a way for us to thank the Vaud regional government for its financial help while helping to make the region more dynamic. The café will provide us a well needed limited income, while waiting for other supports until the next Polymanga in August 2021. We will also keep airing on twitch.tv/polymanga . We are with you and we won’t let you down !

I am an exhibitor, what can I do ?
We will quickly get in touch with you and give you a few choices. In short, you will be
given the choice to keep a deposit of 50% for the upcoming event and keep your
space on the floor map (at your request, you will get a refund of 50% of the invoice if you already fully paid your booth space). Or if you don’t want your booth anymore, you will be able to ask for a refund that will be done by steps (50% of already paid amount by the end of the month, the remaining according to defined timeline and ressources).
We’re aware that the COVID-19 crisis heavily impacts our exhibitors and we will try to support you as much as we can.

What if I have an artist booth ?
You can keep your space for Polymanga 2021 or ask us to refund your deposit. We will
ask you to participate again to Ma Bulle 201 and Arting Spirit 2021 which will take place
in August 2021.
