Saturday brought out numbers of attendees that felt like a double-dose at C2E2 in Chicago compared to Friday’s relative calm. It was a calm that brought sales, apparently, though, with creators and vendors saying Friday was a good day for them.
Saturday, however, looked epic. One staff member at C2E2, who had been working at the show for 10 years, said she had never seen numbers like this. The massively wide aisles were packed. Entrance onto the floor was relatively difficult at times, having to use an overflow entry area that required a lot of extra walking. Artist’s Alley was full, too.
