That's really impressive! I've been going since the second year. My first year it was hosted in the student union at KU and all I did was play DDR in the game room.
This year is going to be #9 for the convention and we sure have grown. From roughly 200 our first year to 5,200 last year. And who knows what attendance will be this year! Our pre-registration is up 80% over last year. If the overall attendance is that much more than last year, we'll be looking at OVER 9000 attendees! I don't suspect that will be the ultimate case, but with Nobuo Uematsu as a Guest and the con falling on Spring Break this year, who knows!
