Every time I go to a convention, I’m always surprised at how many people are there. It’s not that I expect them to be less popular, or for no one to know about the convention, but it’s more along the line that I always sorta underestimate the number of people that actually exist.
It’s like, I keep expecting that the people who are walking by are eventually going to repeat because they’re the only people “programmed into the game”, but (except for the people who are lost) there’s always more and new people. It kinda boggles my mind trying to think about how each one of them has a story related to having (or skipping) breakfast, let alone the rest of their lives.
Our booth was pretty packed too! As disrespectful as it sounds, by the end of the day, I wasn’t able to recognize the people who came by at the beginning of the day because I had met so many people in between. I’ll be thinking twice next time a customer service employee can’t remember who I was.
Part way through the Con, to try dealing with the number of people we were trying to demo to, we rearranged the booth to fit in a 4th demo station (behind the games).
