LibertyCon is a convention that prides itself on great guests, phenomenal panels, a killer ConSuite and our 'Family Friendly Atmosphere'. We're a convention that is small on purpose (we limit the attendees to 750, which is actually set in stone in our Charter) since we want to give the fans a chance to sit down and chat with the guests. Sure we could try to bring in twice the attendees, but do you think you'd be able to sit on a couch with Terry Brooks talking about law or playing Magic the Gathering with Brandon Sanderson if we did?
