METROCON Advertising / Sponsorship
*corrected and finalized Jan. 2014 to include tertiary passes in warm bodies and turnstile attendance
There is a large problem in the event management industry (and especially the market of fan conventions) that revolves around a complete lack of standardization of calculation methods for attendance. We at Team Dynamite Productions and METROCON have decided to list all three of the most widely used of these methods. "Unique Attendance" represents the unique number of tickets sold leading up to and throughout the event, for a specific year. "Warm Bodies" represents all ticket holders - not just those who purchased, but also exhibitors, cast, staff, volunteers, and anyone who might have access to badge-restricted content. This is important for exhibitors and advertisers, because even though a badge might have been given away because a cosplayer won a contest, it doesn't mean they won't read the con guide or visit the vendors room. "Turnstile Attendance" is probably the most misleading of these numbers - for turnstile, a person is counted once for each day they are in attendance. This gives an idea of how many human bodies might pass by your table, sign, advertisement or booth throughout the whole weekend. This is based on the assumption that if a person is there for three days, they have more exposure and opportunity to see your content than a person with a single day pass. We hope this short compilation of knowledge we scoured from textbooks and white-paper articles helps shed some light on the attendance calculation issues plaguing our industry and warping the image of some events.
