Hasn't been done yet. Once the web team has a chance/time available to update them, they will!

Wow! Our biggest event yet. :shock: I guess pent-up demand is a thing! :mrgreen:

Seriously though, I'm very gratified for the numbers. I was genuinely worried that numbers would be down because of the mask/vax mandate, and that the con would be financially vulnerable going forward.

The past few years have been a bit of a rollercoaster for sure! I think a lot of people shared your concerns but based on the numbers, the question was really more about how world events would impact the con rather than the policies themselves. In actuality, both our staffing and pre-reg numbers started to double since the covid policies were announced in February.

Checking the page, I noticed that Anime Boston 2019's attendance includes "(73.249 turnstile)", which is a rather small, precise number, especially compared to the 25,615 registered members. :P
