An Earlier STGCC

Just today, Reed Exhibitors, the organizers of the Singapore Toy Games and Comics Convention, announced that the convention will be held in August 2011 instead of December, like last year.

This was met with a very mixed reception, with some people groaning that it's way too early. And one person even commented that it would be too close to the month of Ramadan/ Hari Raya Puasa.

Others were happy to have it moved back to August - the same time as the original convention in 2009 before Reed took over.

The other interesting thing is that STGCC 2011 is now only held for two days on 20 and 21st August (Sat/ Sun) at the same Suntec Convention halls.

Will this downsizing mean fewer guests? Less panels/ programs? Less diversified offerings? More focused program scheduling? Back to more anime-centric events?

Red Dot Diva is getting curious about what STGCC 2011's direction will be. She would love to get her geekette on in August, but she also knows for sure that if the convention ends up being more than 70% anime-related, she'll probably just be 'popping in and out' that weekend. Anime is just not her thing.

Guess, one can only be patient for more official announcements.

While waiting for more news, one can go RSVP on the STGCC 2011 Event page and stay tuned for a surprise!
