Yeah, it will be interesting. Vendors, guests, and attendees will have some difficult decisions to make. I was hoping to hit C2E2 for the first time in 2018, and now that is not going to happen.

I usually go to C2E2, passed this year because it's been a busy month. Guess 2018 is not in the cards as I'll be at Dallas.

Eight months away. Hopefully we'll hear about the start of the guest list at their October show.

They've started onsite grading at C2E2, so I'd bet the extra personnel they'll need there will make a third show that weekend unlikely. Too bad they picked San Jose over Dallas. Maybe we'll get lucky.

So I don't think they knew, since we don't have the 2018 dates on the Fan Expo Dallas website yet. They asked me to confirm the dates, which I did and if you look on the 2018 schedule, you can see they've added it.

That is very good news, thanks Kevin!

@Kevin Boyd, should we expect to get any early guest announcements out of the October show?

I don’t think so, not on the Comics side at least

I would assume it would be celebs for early announcements, but something to get the ball rolling for spring. Thanks for responding!

And as Kevin said it was cool to pitch suggestions, here are some:

-Game of Thrones cast (especially as the final season will be airing in 2018, and I seem
to recall some previous cancellations...)
-Westworld cast (specifically Thandie Newton - new season of this show comes out in 2018)
-Prison Break cast
-Current and former SNL players (worth noting, TCU gets current ones for their students frequently on Friday evenings, in Sept. 2017 they had Cecily Strong and Pete Davidson, and last Spring they had 2-3 others on Fridays as well)
-Famke Janssen (Was at Fan Expo Canada)
-Kelly Hu (I know she attends conventions, plus she was in X2 with Famke!)
-Ernie Reyes Jr.
