The Anime Expo in Los Angeles, which just finished yesterday, reported its biggest year yet, attendance-wise.
The Anime News Network pointed out that the convention had a turnstile attendance of more than 128,000 and over 47,000 “unique attendees”, with those terms defined as follows:
“Turnstile attendance” is the number of attendees on each day added together, so a person who uses a four-day pass is counted four times. “Unique attendees” is the number of attendees regardless of how many days they attend, so a person who uses a four-day pass is counted once.
ABC7 in Los Angeles sent a reporter to the convention to talk about the weekend and the “geek culture” that is so prominent at this and other similar events. View the video below.
