Good news!  A private group is taking over Old Tuscon and event coordinators are already reaching out to them.

AZ in March sounds pretty good right now here in cold, dark New England. Is there a conference hotel, and where is it in relation to the Old Tucson site? (I couldn't find this on the event website, might not have been looking in the right place.)

AnachroCon in Atlanta this year will also have a wild west theme for east coast folks who cannot make it to Old Tucson.

https://tucson.com/news/local/old-tucson-announces-indefinite-closure-pima-county-to-decide-parks-future/article_ad03568a-f1f9-11ea-add1-2327f31aa0b1.html

"Old Tucson, the Western-themed attraction that was the filming location of more than 400 feature-films and TV shows, is extending its closure indefinitely, with its future to be determined by Pima County.

The decision to close the Arizona landmark "was made with a heavy heart," according to Old Tucson general manager Terry Verhage, who said in a Tuesday news release that the theme park would have remained in business "if not for the COVID-19 pandemic."

“We know how important Old Tucson is to our community, guests and employees,” he said. “We did everything possible to keep our loyal fans safe when we were open, but the ongoing COVID-19 public health protocols and restrictions limited park attendance to the point where Old Tucson could no longer stay in business.”

Maybe Wild West Con could move to Tombstone, AZ?
