Me too. The hallways didn't look as crowed as last year.

Thou who art deeper than even the night!
Thou, the Sea of Chaos, who drifts upon it,
Golden Lord of Darkness!
Hereby I call to thee,
Hereby I swear before thee!
Those who would stand against us,
All those who are fools,
By the power you and I possess,
Grant destruction equally upon them all!
GIGA SLAVE!"

The attendance 2017 and 2018 is about the same. It didn't feel as cowered as last year. The registration serpentine line seamed to be shorter then previous years. Maybe people were processed faster.

We have actually been making incremental improvements to our crowd management policies and procedures over the years while optimizing our security protocols. We as an organization take these things very seriously, and we know that the more time you wait in line, the less time you have to enjoy our event.

Our programming team have also been evaluating and placing more events so that there is actually more to do that people want to actually attend. If people are in rooms, then they are not in the hall ways, if they are not in the hallways then it seems less crowded. Its the ultimate in a catch 22, but it is something our teams are actively working towards.

I second the observation about the halls feeling a little less packed. I always get my badge Thursday night so I can't speak to reg lines during convention hours.
