  1. I really wish they had left the convention around the same time of year they did this year. The weather was beautiful, whereas we’re going to be back to fighting the cold and possibly even snow with the earlier date like they did in 07 and 06.

  2. Unfortunately, MD, the April dates weren’t available to the NYCC this year. My understanding of the situation regarding scheduling – and I’m not passing myself off as an expert, I may well be wrong – is that when it comes to selecting dates, the NYCC is still a small fish in the Javits Center’s pond and for the amount of space they want, they basically have to take what’s available.
