I voted for Thanksgiving weekend.  I think this con will be more of a local regional con.  It won't be something people fly in for from all over the world.  So having it during a holiday weekend works.  What could be better than spending time with the family at a con?  Also CCI is volunteer organization.  People have day jobs.  Having it during a holiday gives them the time off to work it.  I think it might be tough for people to ask for time off just as many companies are getting back to work.

FWIW WonderCon Anaheim has taken place with several other conventions taking place at the same time in the Convention Center.  So just because there are multiple events scheduled in SD Con Center doesn't preclude Whatever CCI does in November for their Convention

The last time WonderCon had to share the convention center was years ago. I agree that multiple events scheduled does not preclude the CCI event from also being that weekend (as there’s plenty of space), but I think it makes it much less likely. I’ve noticed that CCI is rather...territorial when it comes to their events.

I pick the week of the 19th however, there  is no indications that SDCC’s November event has to be at the Convention Center.  CCI could even go back to it early days and have it at the US Grant Hotel.  I think the event will held at the Comic Con Museum since it is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2021 and the surrounding area.  It will probably be a fundraiser gala designed shore up its finances.  Tier 4 & 5s will be getting an invitation for first dibs at tickets.

oddly enough, i could even see this being an annual event. In the same way WonderCon or SD Comic Fest is


I was just having that same thought now! Wouldn't it be nice if something good came out of this pandemic necessitated change, i.e. a new annual smaller convention at a different time in the year.

Although I didn't know SD Comic Fest existed, that kind of seems to fulfil that roll. But perhaps this convention could be somewhere in the middle size wise between SDCC and SD Comic Fest.

SDcomic fest is in early March. (It was many peoples last con before lockdown last year)
A con the size of WonderCon would be nice ;)

If this Nov convention ends up being the weekend after Thanksgiving(Nov 26-28) wouldn't booths need to be setup a day or 2 before that? That would mean vendors would be setting things up on Thanksgiving day. Not good for them :(

Originally, I was thinking it would be Nov 19 weekend but now I'm thinking it will be Nov 26 weekend. Might suck for a lot of people(like me) who are planning on traveling for Thanksgiving to be with family.
Yeah, my parents moved/retired to AZ from OH April 2020 to be closer to my family (I'm the only kid w/2 grandkids for them) and even with a relatively short 5 hour drive to their house we haven't seen each other since Christmas 2019 when we traveled to OH.  I'm positive they'll be counting on a Thanksgiving together, and if CCI moves their event to Thanksgiving weekend we'll definitely be insisting they come to us  :P (I'm also hoping with both my wife and I being Pro status that we get to go to this event for free, just like we could for WonderCon)
