When Will SDCC 2023 Returning Registration Be Held?

CCI has stated that returning registration (also known as pre-registration) will take place in September or October. Let's start taking bets as to when it will be!

October 1 would be incredibly inconvenient for me, so that's my guess.

I voted for October 15, but October 8 would be hysterical, as that is NYCC.  :)

I'm going with October 15th.

But it will probably be 9/24 or 10/8 as I'm traveling both of those days.

Past three pre-regs were October 12th, October 13th, and October 28th. Which is strangely consistent of them. So October 15th it is!

If it's Oct 15th I will have to send a thank you note to the vendor for double booking my cousin's wedding that day and moving it to Friday for free.

* mid-October is the safe guess
* in actuality it may likely have to do with how quickly CCI needs a cash infusion; if they need cash NOW too pay the bills, they may ramp up the process and do it sooner, like mid-late Sept.

I think when they have Returning Registration will let us know how close CCI/SDCC is to being 'back to normal.'  As others have pointed out, mid-October = where they were the couple of years pre-COVID shutdown, and may seem like a good indicator that CCI is getting much closer to the pre-COVID "normal."  Earlier may indicate CCI is still sweating finances slightly.

This post definitely indicates that I'm overthinking/over-analyzing things which my wife would say is par for the course.

Add to that, if the contracts cci is currently negotiating for '23 require a deposit. I have *no* idea about contracts in that type of business.

I am so happy to be getting back to the SDCC normal list of things to do!  I want it to be as soon as possible in my heart, but in my head, I want it to be mid October.  Still recovering $$$ from SDCC. 
It is 2023 and I am still asking...where's my flyin' car??!! @fannishmarcia

Good point; I know for our school district (non-profit as I presume city Convention Centers likely are) a percentage of facility rental fees are required at the time of booking.  It would make sense that Anaheim & SD Convention Centers would also require a deposit for their bookings.  It's plausible the orgs have an amicable relationship and if more time is needed for a deposit could be granted but who knows.

well, Oct 8 and nycc is likely to keep the bar graph looking like a disrespectful hand signal.

I'm just hoping that it's not one of the 2 weekends I am unavailable. Fortunately (?) one of those weekends is NYCC weekend, and I'm pretty sure that CCI purposely avoids NYCC weekend. In general, they also seem to avoid long weekends for badge sales, and a lot of people do have Columbus Day off.

And wouldn't a SDCC badge be the best present ever for her?  >:D
