I don't know that it would affect sponsorship all that much, that is
just a budget thing, one month between them doesn't make a difference
there. Well with the maybe exception of those who are going to budget
quarterly.

It could affect attendance for some of the contributors but normal users
I doubt it much. Maybe. I mean last year we were only 2 months different
and neither show suffered. Do we think that 2 months is different than 2
weeks? *shrug*
