Sooner the better. As of right now it's just there to give me an idea of total attendees and boards.

Will there be an area for people/vendors bringing things to sell? It'd be nice to buy bulky items in person and be able to bring them home in a carry-on instead of paying for and waiting for shipping.

I'm not sure if this is where I should post this, or what "sessions" might be planned for KeyCon, but would anyone be interested in a live-build of another Invisible Keyboard?

I'd love to see a demo of casting molds from sculpts or artisans from the molds.

And if anyone is wondering, I am planning to do posters again this year. If anyone is excited about a concept or design and wants to collaborate, I'm also open to that. I have a concept, but have been very very busy and am trying to carve out time to execute on it.

Is it typical at these events to find a wide variety of keycap sets and boards for sale? And by individual attendees, or only vendors? Not sure what to expect if I make the trip, or how much cash to bring.

i haven't seen too much stuff for sale at meetups, but it's definitely worth bringing some cash (or the paypal app) just in case

The general rule is that people can sell stuff. I've sold stuff in the past and probably will this year too. It's not the main focus, but if you're looking to buy or sell, it doesn't hurt to come prepared.

Yes, I will be. I'm also happy to collaborate this year if anyone is interested. I have a few concepts, but I haven't found anything I'm really sold on yet. I know time will run out quickly, so I need to really get started.

Awesome!
Have you tried consulting with Jacobsmirror so that he can provide a list of artists who may be attending and whom you could contact for a formal request on a collaboration? I think that could help. Or even just to bounce ideas! I'm sure among the attendees there may be people vested in prints and promo work of this kind. The organizer could perhaps send a PSA asking for volunteers.

Hey, great question. In general, we're currently sitting at 345 attendees, so table space is definitely going to be limited. I'd say bring your best 2 or 3. I think it's safe to say that's going to be the official guideline for the event.
