    Thanks for reporting your experience! I don’t think it’s a surprise that a would-be small event like this would see an unexpected influx of visitors. People are looking for things to do while bigger events are canceled, so smaller events see the spillover… but I think if/when larger events happen, they will be much smaller than they were since they rely more on traveling where smaller events are comprised almost entirely of local visitors.

    It looks like the event was primary a marketplace/seller’s event, which I also think is the most manageable thing for the time being, since shopping in a dealer’s room shouldn’t be too different from shopping in a grocery store or any other retail establishment as long as the same precautions are observed. It will be interesting to see how/whether events handle more traditional things like panels, contests, etc, but that may be a hurdle for larger events. Smaller events may just stick to having markets.

    (As a side note, it seems I wasn’t able to use my WordPress.com account to login to comment. Had to use Discord.)
