The other good news is that we will not be doing FanX Feb. 2-3. We are not saying we are not doing FanX 2018, just not in February which is the only date available at the Salt Palace. We are looking at some very interesting options in the Spring for FanX so stay tuned on that. We'll keep you posted.
As much as we want to get started on FanX the winter dates available at the Salt Palace didn't make sense to us for a lot of reasons. Feb was too close to our last event. It's problematic driving in from Idaho and Wyoming, Montana and Colorado and it's right after Sundance which is a factor. If a big snow storm came in, guests wouldn't be able to attend and vendors could be trapped on the road. And costumes and winter coats go together like Sushi and hot dogs.... or something like that.
The Loyalty Launch is for #SLCC18 for September 6-8, 2018. Part of the reason we've discounted deeper is because it's far away. Part of the reason to launch is that a lot of our fans like to give comic con tickets as Christmas presents. With early support we anticipate being able to book some great guests before their calendars fill up.
Please feel free to ask questions and you'll get the official announcement on the Loyalty Launch tomorrow. We hope you're sympathetic to the complexities of this decision. Everyone on our staff, Dan and I wanted to do this event. Common sense and risk assessment talked us out of it. We are optimistic that a better and more interesting and elegant solution will reveal itself.
Thank you for supporting us as always. We will continue to do our best to make FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ the greatest comic con in the world.
FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ 2018 is September 6 - 8, 2018 at the Salt Palace
