I was going by discussion in the volunteer thread. I will adjust the first post until the date is officially announced.

That'd be an interesting experiment. If the only way you can get into SDCC is by being an attendee the prior year, what's the half-life of attendance. ie, how long will it take for SDCC attendance to drop by half.

Actually, it kind of used to be that way.... back when pre-registration was on-site. Anyone at the con could just walk up and register for next year's con, at a discount. They had to stop doing that because demand got so high that it was approaching the point where you couldn't go unless you had been the year before. That's when they moved to 2 online sales.

CCI has stated that they don't want to make it 'returning reg only' because they want new blood in the con every year. They want new people to be able to experience the con. At the same time, clearly they value those who have attended before, because they continue to offer returning registration.

Forum Housekeeping:

Added "2020" to the thread title so we can keep track of which year this discussion is attributed to (for future reference down the line, of course).

The also used to go on sale on a random, unannounced date online.  I had done Pre-Registration for most years on-site (it was literally, like, $30-40 for 4-day w/PN if purchased on site).  Years I wouldn't have the cash to Pre-Reg on site and waited for online sales, you had to constantly be checking CCI's website to see if they were up for sale yet.  There were at least three benchmark dates where the prices would go up, so the earlier you bought the cheaper the event.  I'd get home from work, and think, "Oh; maybe I'll check CCI's site to see if badges are for sale yet" and one day they would be: with no fanfare or announcement.

Simpler times...
