Ok, two more NYC Con notes:
First, the preliminary estimate of attendance is 64,000 people. I don’t know if that counts a weekend pass as 1 or 3 (as some other major conventions do), but I can certainly believe that many people were around, based on Saturday.
Second, if you want to be part of Artists Alley next year, you should apply online. It’s not purely based on order of application, although that’s one of the factors considered, along with “content” and “relevancy”. Applicants won’t find out if they’re accepted to buy a space until September 1. Is that typical of these kinds of shows, for that long a delay between application and confirmation? With the show in February next year, I guess five months is long enough to plan.
