They’re pitching it next week for an August 2010 date, information procured by TheForce.Net says:
A presentation is being prepared for Lucasfilm and Reed Exhibitions next week and the group plans to narrow down the candidate cities to (2) by October 10th. From there, site visits will commence for the rest of the month with a tentative decision to be made by November 1st.
Perhaps just as interesting, is that a second bid is listed for an additional Celebration in August of 2014.
This does not mean Orlando will get the convention(s,) just that they’re trying for it, but I’ve done a bit of research on my own and I believe they could be a leading candidate. But August in Florida? Heat, humidity, and hurricanes? I’m not so sure about that, but at this point it may be their only opening. (I’m still crossing my fingers for Baltimore or Chicago.)
TFN also points out that Reed Exhibitions has been organizing New York Comic-Con. Of course, this is all unconfirmed!
