Definitely a bizarre weekend to try to do a convention--set-up on Thanksgiving followed by the first day of the con on Black Friday. They should just give this year a pass and concentrate on what they need to do for next year.

from someone who used to work in retail, I can kind of see the logic of having it that weekend from the standpoint that vendors might do well at a convention but since that is the busiest shopping weekend of the whole year, I cannot see someone wanting to set up a booth and taking inventory and staff away from a brick and mortar location that is almost guaranteed to have incredible sales.

Also, that weekend is one of the most-if not the most-busiest traveled weekends of the year. Flights and hotels are probably already booked and now to have to deal with a convention at the last moment does not seem like good planning or even business sense.

We had a local con every year on Thanksgiving weekend and it did very well. People are in a mood to spend that weekend - nerds and non-nerds alike. I always loved it - Thanksgiving and watched the kids on black Friday - comic show the rest of the weekend
