I try to keep numbers of attendees that show up each year, not just tickets sold so we can determine how the Con is doing.

This year we sold most tickets before the Con, sold about the same we usually do for walk ups, but had a larger than normal list of no shows due to the weather.

The total attendance in 2016 was 1 less than 2015

We had 319 attendees... so like 2014, we were less than the previous year.

So far to date, the attendance has been:

2009 - 55
2010 - 88
2011 - 118
2012 - 155
2013 - 225
2014 - 211
2015 - 320
2016 - 319

We hope to see closer to 500 in 2017 at the larger venue

I heavily marketed the con every year except two....2014 and 2016, when we did virtually nothing to promote the con. Two years of "heavy" marketing were 2013 (over 40% rise in attendance) and 2015 (over 50% rise in attendance). Hoping with moving into the new place we can get a similar rise in attendance, be sure and get the word out, we will be doing the same!

Flyers would help.

Doug's right...fliers get people in the door...but when we don't need a lot of people, putting fliers out everywhere would only get too many people at the con. Now with the change in locale we'll be able to have fliers everywhere.
