Yeah pretty much.  I probably would have moaned for a bit and stopped shortly after if they had just definitively announced they were moving to Anaheim, rather than getting the continued messages from WonderCon saying "we want to return to SF" and then seeing a bunch of open dates at Moscone center, and even reading comments from Glanzer that they were offered dates in SF in both 2012 and 2013 (especially when some of the Glanzer and CCI statements I've read contradict each other.)  I just think it's tacky for an organization as prominent as CCI to keep on letting on so many people like this.

Regarding Big Wow, I've never been, partly because it's the week before Fanime and usually been tiny, but I've heard the last one was quite successful, so I'll probably will check it out next year especially after this year's Fanime registration line snafu.

I think their thinking is that they are avoiding public backlash from Nor - Cal - ers.  I also would prefer a straight response and while I don't excuse the runaround, there's more going on bts than we know.  If you're into comics, than you'll like Big Wow Fest!  :)

I agree that it seems like CCI is not telling e whole story and I wish they would just be honest as to their intentions to keep it in Anaheim or actually return to SF.

I'm sure the question will come up in tomorrow's Google + Hangout with Glanzer , well maybe not since it is a SDCC follow up

On second thought, why not a couple weeks before Easter?

I think Easter just came early this past year so they had it then. I think it'd normally be a week or two ahead of it. I like Spring because I'm local and I don't have any big expenses then. There's two conventions I go to in Nov and you have all that Christmas/holiday shopping to get done.

One thing to consider though is that March/April is spring break time and the cost of plane tickets and hotels goes up esp in SoCal. But, there's not that many things going on. Go earlier to Feb and you hit Valentine's day plans. Go later and you hit Mother's day and school graduation plans.

You don't even need to +1 in order to attend, anyone can watch via YouTube. It just gives the organizers a better idea of how many are tuning in.

Leonard does a great job putting them together! I'm sad I'm not able to take part this time.

The hangout was a lot of fun to watch, but when asked about WonderCon, it was the basic answer we have heard over and over again. I was hoping he would slip and let even something small out about 2014, but it looks like we will have to wait until an offical announcement.
Hard work never killed anybody... but why take a chance?

I'm on the exhibitor interest list and even those of us planning to exhibit in 2014 are waiting to find out where and when so we can apply for exhibit hall space. If I hear anything I'll let everyone know. :)

That's the weekend before C2E2. Marvel, DC and other companies will have issues attending both cons, so close together.
