Today we received a lot of news from Volks regarding their schedule changes around the recent COVID-19 Pandemic.
Dolpa 43 Cancelled
Based on their previous survey (link) asking customers whether to delay or cancel Dolpa 43, Volks has decided to chancel the event. Dolls Party 43 was supposed to be held in Tokyo Big Sight on the 26th of April this year but will not take place due to concerns regarding participant safety in the light of the ongoing pandemic.
Volks has offered their thanks to all users who participated in the online survey and noted that 10 of them will be randomly chosen to receive a handwritten note of thanks from the company president, Mr. Shigeta, himself.
