We tried everything to keep Polymanga running in 2020.

But the Swiss government ruling gives us no choice but to postpone Polymanga next Easter (2-5 April 2021) in Montreux 2m2c. It seems almost impossible to organise a big event in 2020 without harming the health of our attendees. While we want you to live the best Polymanga ever, we just can’t keep doing it in 2020. It’s a big blow for organizers, volunteers, sponsors, partners, exhibitors, artists and guests. 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 be valid in 2021?
Yes. Just like what we did when we moved Polymanga in August, we will activate all Polymanga 2020 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.

I have a one day ticket for Polymanga, how does it work ?
The ticket system will automatically adapt your ticket for the same day in 2021. If you have a ticket for Friday 2020, it will be valid for Friday in April 2021. Same for Saturday, and so on. Of course, you can ask us to change the day of your ticket until the end of February 2021, just by asking us.

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.

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 15th of June 2020. 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. We sincerely hope it will be the same for the move to April 2021 and we deeply thank you for your support.

What now ?
We’ll have to go over the COVID-19 crisis by dealing with the huge administrative tasks and the financial challenges that it implies. In addition of the generous help from attendees and exhibitors, we hope to get help from the Swiss, regional and cantonal government to help us get past this difficult time. We won’t leave you alone since we will organize live shows to entertain you on twitch.tv/polymanga on a regular basis.

If you want to show your support, you can already buy your tickets for Polymanga 2021 (Easter, 2-5 April 2021 in Montreux 2m2c) on polymanga.com

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 (You will get a refund of 50% of the invoice if you already fully paid your booth space). Or you will be able to ask for a refund that will be done by steps (50% of already paid amount now, the remaining according to a 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 2021which will take place in April 2021.
Polymanga has been the largest Swiss event on pop culture, video games, and manga in the last 16 years! (40,500 visitors in 2019).

Every year at Easter, families gather to see the best of the entertainment on 18,000 m2. For this year, we expect more than 50 guests, several concerts, film screenings, YouTubers, web series, more than 10 gaming tournaments, a publisher showroom, 4 cosplay shows, karaoke... and many other activities, without forgetting a big shopping arcade!
