Harry Shum Jr. was scheduled to appear at ShowtimeCon2 in Barcelona, Spain this weekend (March 25th and 26th) to meet the fans, but unfortunately he had to cancel it last minute due his busy schedule – he is currently shooting Shadowhunters season 2B in Toronto. Zarata Events, the one responsible for the convention, released an official statement about it. Read it below:
From the deepest pain of our hearts we have to give you a very sad new we received just last night. Unfortunately and due to a new last minute change in the shooting of Shadowhunters, both Matt and Harry have been forced to cancel their appearance on ShowtimeCon2. The news caught us already in Barcelona, waiting for them to catch their flights in 2 days to come, and leaves us without no material time to be able to replace their attendance. We know that at this point there’s nothing we can say to mitigate your disappointment, but we want you to know that they really want to come to Spain to meet their fans, so we are working with their manager different options to be able to compensate you in some way for their absence at the convention.
This unfortunate news that has surprised us all literally two days before the event, wanted to be explained by the boys through a video made by themselves that we attach below.

You can change Harry and Matt products for the products of other guests at the convention itself, or in case you do not want the change, they will be refunded in full. To do this, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from Monday, indicating your name, order number and detailing the products purchased, the price of each and if you prefer that we make the refund by paypal or by Bank wire. We ask you a little patience with the refund, since there are a lot of orders. When we return to Bilbao after the convention we will get full with it.
We’re so sorry 🙁
