Keenvention Vendor Area

Keenevention is an intimate event. That means the attendance is small in comparison to other conventions. It’s easy to meet nearly everyone who attends. Last year we had 120-130 attendees, about half were speakers at the event, a quarter were tickets paid in advance and a quarter were walk-ins. Given the size of the event space (the largest in Keene, to my knowledge), Keenevention can never be much more than 200-300 people, nor would I want it to be.
