Otakon is a large-scale Anime, Asian Culture, and pop-culture convention with an average attendance of approximately 30,000 people. There is a large game room with rare and imported console and arcade games which are free to play as part of convention admission. In this game room, Otakorp rents space to indie game developers. Our premium booth space was generously donated at no charge, in addition to four dealer badges.
Otakorp was an excellent and supportive partner of Extra Life at this event and we hope to continue attending the con in the future as they move to DC to continue to grow; they are traditionally a Baltimore convention and have been for over 20 years.
This was a small event and sign-ups were minimal with only 7% of the attendees committing to participate in Game Day. The people who did sign up were highly engaged and excited to host their own events.
