List of attendance figures at anime conventions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The table below lists noteworthy anime conventions[nb 1] from around the world by total attendances for the year it was held for which data is available. The following points should be considered:

  • In some cases the figures listed represented more than 1 day as some anime conventions last several days.
  • Free or heavily discounted seats may be counted by Anime conventions. No-shows for paid seats may be included in some cases, but not in others.
  • Not all Anime conventions publish official attendance figures every year. Various media outlets produce their own figures and sometimes these do not agree, but the differences in the averages given are usually no more than one or two per cent.
