The possibility of a convention was first mentioned in this UK marketing guide last year.

The Viacom International Media Networks website has a sizzle reel for SpongeBob, which you can watch here:

At 1:09 there is a slide that says "1st ever fan convention - Labor Day 2013".

Oh man if they do have a convention in the UK they should have one in the US too. I wonder how big a SpongeBob convention in the UK would turn out. :w00t:

Dang... that video has been on the b2b site for months and I didn't even catch that. They should have the convention in America... since that's where the show is made... :p

I'm curious about how a convention would work. Would they aim it at kids? Adults? Everybody? SpongeBob is technically still popular when you look at ratings, social media activity etc but how many of those people care enough about the show that they'd go to a convention?

I think it would be aimed at kids, as they are Nickelodeon's target audience

That makes sense ... I can see it working if they promote it like they do with other official Nick events like Worldwide Day of Play.

Well they'll probably advertise it a lot in the coming months. Other shows have had successful conventions before, so I think the SpongeBob one will go well.

If it's in the UK, I'm very tempted to go, I'm just hoping that it may not be aimed solely at children :p

The event will be held in the USA this year, not the UK. Viacom BIZ has confirmed so.

Makes sense ... there's definitely a bigger audience for it in the USA.

 

When is Labor Day, by the way? I googled it but there's a couple of different answers so I don't know which is right.

Is it possible that there could be conventions being held in both USA and UK?

Still quite a while away, then. That would explain why we haven't heard anything official yet.

I know this was already discussed in other topics, but according to a Viacom sizzle reel, a spongebob fan convention is going to happen on Labor Day. This website gave info about it. I took a screencap of it.

Who thinks that SpongeBuddy Mania and SpongeBob Universe should have their own panels?

Weird to have it at a 14-year instead of 15.

14 year? weird. Sounds cool but I have more important things to do. But I'd love to hear what they're going to do and announce there. I hope they'll release more info on the hiatus, movie, and new episodes! Want to hear all the news now!
