Mystery solved - don't you just hate it when you post from the wrong account? 😉
The announcement is back on the eBay community under "seller_news_team" instead of the specific community rep who had posted previously.
And the following update was also sent via email, so it would appear to be official - the dates for eBay Open have changed to September 26 for in person eBay Studio events and September 27-29 for the main online event.
The date change announcement that was posted in the eBay community has now been deleted.
I've reached out to eBay to ask if the date change announcement was in error and to confirm the actual dates for eBay Open - stay tuned for updates!
eBay has announced a date change for both the in person eBay Studio events and the virtual eBay Open conference for 2023.
