Program Book Advertising
Kumoricon’s program book is distributed to every attendee at the convention—in 2008, we had over 4400 paid badges (this number if computed with full weekend badges being counted only once). Kumoricon’s attendance growth measured from the previous year has never been below 28% for any year, and in 2008 we grew 48% over 2007’s numbers.
Our program book is professionally printed in full color and your ad will be seen by attendees throughout the three days of the convention as they browse the book for event descriptions, guest info, maps, and more. Additionally, attendees keep the book as a special souvenir from that year’s con.
