Hey guys, help me with my homework?
So I'm building a public relations plan using our local anime convention as a model and part one of my objectives is to boost attendance over the weekend/bring in more people from out of town ...
I already have some ideas, but want to cover my bases from an attendee perspective, so for anyone who has ever attended a convention or wants to attend one, if you share your insights with me that would be awesome
Any or all, would be super and really help me out. Lotsa details or basic replies all appreciated!1) Your main reason for attending an anime convention
b) meeting other fans/connecting with people
c) video programming
d) dealer's room
e) cosplay/artist alley
2) How do you typically find out about said convention? (Advertisements? Word of Mouth? The Interwebs? Spidey senses?)
3) Are there any conventions you attended in the past you would not attend again? Why?
4) For any vendors/artists/people who sell their stuff, what factors make you want to sell stuff at a particular convention? And what turned you off from applying?
5) Describe your favourite convention experiences ... which ones do you frequent and what brings you back?
