When I was there, I thought they announced that it was over 700.
The magic is not in our sleights and illusions, but instead in our ability to bring love and joy.

I was under the impression that it was closer to 800.

There's two numbers. Paid attendees and total. You can figure on around 100 comps, staff, performers, etc.
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

Greetings, I've spoken numerous times with Terry Richison, Convention Chair, for the IBM and have gone over the numbers and how to improve numbers for conventions in general, not just for a national. The numbers per Terry and others I've spoken with are very high 700s not including any comps since those are tabulated separately.

Tabman is correct, though, there are other conventions that do count their comps and talent as part of their numbers and this can be as low as 100 and as high as 150 or better.
