Unfortunately the VCA 2020 is canceled

Sadly, like in "The Empire Strikes Back" where after an attack by Darth Vader, the rebels are forced to evacuate their base on the ice planet Hoth, we also need to focus on our safety. As you know, our trade fairs also prioritize the needs of visitors, partners, and stars. Their focus is currently on the greatest possible security, predictability, and economic stability.

For this reason, with a heavy heart, we have to suspend the upcoming "VIECC Vienna Comic Con" and the "VCA - Vienna Challengers Area" for this year. We will of course refund your tickets! You can cancel here 👉 storno.viecc@reedexpo.at

We thank you for your understanding of this decision, your support and celebrate our long friendship. 🤍 We are happy to answer any questions you may have ➡ esports@reedexpo.at.

It’s an honour to be the first official player for the VCA. As one of Austria’s leading e-sports organisations, they help me unlock my potential to become an even better player. I can hardly wait for this year’s highlight, the CCBPU final at the VCA!

Nostalgia, joy, passion, love, surprise...but even the disappointment of losing a game. Witnessing these emotions come together in one place is what makes the VCA so special. The event’s popularity is truly impressive. The VCA is an extremely important part of the Austrian e-sports landscape.

The Austrian scene is doing a great job, creating the basis for a fruitful e-sports breeding ground that attracts gamers from all over Europe. Our association will be providing, for example, certified e-sports referees and trained gamecasters to support the event in these areas.

Stefan Baloh
President of the ESVĂ–

We’ve been supporting the scene with high-end technologies since the very start and are proud to play such an crucial role in ensuring the success of the event and the popularity of e-sports. The Premier Tour 2018 in Austria, where we were technical partners, was a real a highlight for us!

Managing Director of STEINER Mediensysteme GmbH

The importance of e-sports in Gen Z’s youth culture has long been a hot topic among international marketing decision makers. The VCA, as well as bringing famous e-sports celebrities to Austria, is the best place for gamers and fans to come into contact with this topic and their target group.

Founder of Spiel & Drang Esports Marketing

The VCA was one of my personal highlights in 2019. I´m looking forward spending a few great hours with the FIFA-Community at the Coca-Cola eSoccer Cup again this year! Hopefully there will be time to follow other e-sport titels too and get connected with their communities.
