It's the modern equivalent to President Kennedy's moon speech, so they are giving it lots of public attention.

I wouldn't go that far. The magnitude would really depend on timelines, IMO. If they are "aspirational," then it's little different than IAC talks. If they have some real milestones to hit...

I would say the 2016 IAC was more like that, since it was the closest thing to an announcement of plans for manned travel to the moon and mars. Although many people already knew that that was SpaceX's plan, so there's nothing which really can compare.

Also, will that be a hexaweb?

Speculation: Since SpaceX said that they'll also be saying why they're doing this mission, do you think it may have something to do with incremental tests of the BFR to do more and more impressive things (simplified version), before they head to Mars?

Starting!!!
