Announced publicly today on the Paradise Toronto Comicon website:
Sorry it has taken so long to send you information on the 2009 Paradise Toronto Comicon. As some of you remember the only available date was the July 4th weekend. After some discussions with a number of you, it has been decided that putting a show on that weekend would not be wise. Reasons for this are summer vacations, camp and cottage season as well as a lack of interest from American dealers and possible attendees.
I have been in discussions with the Hyatt Regency (formerly the Holiday Inn) and the only other date they could offer was our Thanksgiving weekend. The dates we had been looking towards have been late October and November.
Unfortunately it looks like we are going to have postpone our show for this year. We will definitely be working towards doing a show in 2010. With all the upheaval of shows in the next few years (Wizard moving and canceling shows, and Reed Expositions expanding into Chicago and moving their New York dates) we will be working on moving into an open timeslot. Hopefully we will be making our 2010 announcement in early January of 2010.
Thanks to everyone for their support and patience and we look forward to being back in 2010 stronger then ever.
