From the program guide. Returns to San Jose but moves to the fall:

I actually like that 2020 date. I think it’s better than having it in April or in August—not so many cons to worry about.

I like the new dates too. It puts SVCC pretty solidly at the end of Con season.

I am curious to see how this new date works out next year.

I’m not fond of them changing dates / months every year. I really don’t care when it is (except for July), as long as it’s consistent.

I’d also like it to be the same season, but I don’t think they had much of a choice this year. I suspect they moved it even further out next year to avoid running into the same possible conflicts in the spring and summer (late summer turned out to be extremely saturated on the west coast.) I think them securing dates over a year in advance is a good sign, so fingers crossed that they’ll be prepared enough to put in a top tier show next year...since this year wasn’t.

I agree with Hikanteki. I suspect that they're trying to find their own space apart from WonderCon in the spring and SDCC in the summer. I'm okay with this move as long as it stays consistent in timing for the next couple of years.

One of the exhibitors said that the con sent them an email saying they are rebranding, and will announce the name in a few weeks.

I do notice that the page that shows next year's dates has the logo, but not the name.

Interesting. From the start there has been a little bit of an identity issue in my opinion.

Hmm, now it's possible it might conflict with LA Comic Con. Although it is usually Halloween weekend, this year's LA Comic Con is Oct 11-14.

There is still no booking at the San Jose convention center for SVCC in October or any other month for that matter.  Oct 16-18 is still open so it's not booked under a new name so ?????

LA Comic Con is surprisingly early this year, Sept 25-27, so there is no conflict.

They haven't even updated any of their social media since November 1st. I hope the show is actually continuing this year...

I've been wondering this too... they still have last year's dates on their sites. No announcements, no nothing. I'm wondering if the're going through a change in management behind the scenes.
