Silicon Valley Comic Con, Steve Wozniac‘s massive confluence of the sciences and pop culture held annually at the San Jose Convention Centre, has announced that they are shifting their dates for 2019, in the wake of a clash with a number of other shows on their original date.
The word that Comic-Con International‘s WonderCon, ReedPOP‘s C2E2 and the organisers of Silicon Valley Comic Con (it must be said, as well as Planet Comic Con, held in Missouri) had scheduled themselves for the same weekend of 29th-31st March 2019 set a real cat amongst the pigeons for hardcore North American convention attendees as it seemed that the inconvenient conflict highlighted the sheer weight of the comic con calendar.
Such a collision of dates would have meant that not only would attendees have to pick a show, but also the talent pool for those events would have had to pick and choose which to attend and support, possibly weakening all the line-ups; however, with the announcement that Silicon Valley Comic Con will now be held much later in the year – over 16th-18th August 2019, still at the San Jose Convention Center – thankfully, that agonising decision has been a little easier. Phew!
Still, that C2E2, eh?
The only issue now for the SVCC crowd is those people that had bought passes for the old March dates, rearranging their diaries. Thank goodness they’ve given them plenty of warning, as well as honouring passes for the new dates in August. They’ll just have to wait a little while longer to get their Silicon Valley fix, is all.
Fingers crossed, we’ll still be able to cover the shows when they happen, as well as keeping you updated with all of the latest news as we get closer to the dates – SVCC 2019 was quite the blast for our man on the ground Dan Berry, and here’s hoping he’ll be able to attend next year, too.
