The con and the hotel where the con is hosted are English-friendly atmospheres. Most South American furries and staffs speak good English, still not everybody will be able to talk fluently. All signage and announcements are made in three languages: Portuguese, English and Spanish. Note that Portuguese is still the main language of the convention for most acitivities and English and Spanish are courtesy languages. For 2020, some activities are done in English and Spanish. ;-)
Besides your willing to have fun, you should bring enough clothing for your stay in Brazil. August is officially winter in Brazil but temperatures in Santos may vary from mildly warm to warm days and chilly nights. Fursuits, kigurumis, cosplays and other costumes are allowed at the hotel and convention areas (except for the restaurants). You should also bring any medicine you need to take on a regular basis that need to be filled with a prescription. Cold medicines, advil and common medicines for allergy and stomach issues can be easily found at any of the dozen local drugstores nearby and are free to buy without a prescription.
