Thank You to Everyone for Kumoricon 2007
Posted September 14, 2007
Thank you to our attendees, volunteers, and staff for making Kumoricon 2007 the most exciting year yet. From the new registration system, to the wonderful support we received from the Hilton, to our larger gaming room and new manga library, we’ve come a long way in five years.
A few facts demonstrating our growth:
Paid attendance: 3003 (up 33% from last year)
Charity auction money raised for p:ear: $2776 (up 13%)
In 2008, Kumoricon will be returning to our most popular past hotel: The Portland Doubletree at Lloyd Center, our home in 2005. You, the attendees and staff, asked for this, and we heard you. We were very happy with the Hilton in Vancouver this year but we’ve already outgrown it and the Doubletree will nicely accommodate our expected growth for 2008.
General elections for the 2008 officers will be scheduled and announced shortly on the front page right here, and the nominations will be posted in the forums.
Look forward to the Kumoricon 2008 website, opening in less than a month featuring a new design and our 2008 mascot as voted by the staff and announced at closing ceremonies.
