*removes all of the hats*

*removes years of dust from unrelated event planning hat, and puts it on
for a moment*

In my experience, events of any nature where convention venue space is
involved, are essentially set in stone before being publicly advertised as
contracts are put in place for hotel room booking blocks as well as the
convention venue space. These spaces are also typically in a relatively
high demand limiting the access and available times to schedule. Often
venues also give preference (and sometimes even better group discounts) to
repeat events as they are typically a known entity and will have somewhat
known needs so the venue and hotel(s) can staff appropriately.

tl;dr, I personally wouldn't expect any changes to be possible at this
point.

*removes event planning hat of past life, puts personal scheduling hat on*

I imagine that as a community, it is near impossible to schedule something
avoiding holidays for everyone in the community.

I personally have lost count of the number of holidays and special days
that I've spent on business trips over the past four years. While I may be
an out-lier in my feelings on this subject, I'm not upset, annoyed, or even
bitter about lost times. This community is part of my family.
