An in-person Comic-Con International: San Diego isn’t happening this July, but is happening this year.
On Thanksgiving weekend in the United States.
The organizers of what’s colloquially known as SDCC announced a smaller, three-day event to run Friday, November 26 through Sunday, November 28 called Comic-Con Special Edition. The event is scheduled to be held at the San Diego Convention Center – the traditional site of the full-size Comic-Con International: San Diego.
Hosting a major convention on a major holiday, and what is traditionally the biggest travel weekend of the year, does raise questions, including attendance and retail exhibitors devoting their resources simultaneous to the huge Black Friday shopping day.
