Thank you! This is all very helpful.
A few things that jumped out at me:
-30k-40k attendance sounds pretty good. I have a feeling that will accommodate everyone who wants to come, since there will be some no-shows thanks to the move to September and people being gun-shy about big events.
-The dedicated eating areas sound like a good idea. I wondered how that was going to be handled (aside from just banning eating in the ICC, which sounds like a tall order).
-The closing of the ICC for cleaning sounds kind of strange, considering that there's more evidence that the "deep clean everything" method is nothing more than (as one CNN editorial put it) hygiene theater.
And one personal question from me that's related to one of the items:
-Since it seems likely that masks will be required (I doubt things will change drastically enough that they won't be considered necessary by Gen Con), here's my question: does anyone have any advice for how to make yourself more understandable to others while wearing a mask? I know that I sometimes have difficulty understanding others or making myself understood at gaming tables during normal Gen Con, and masks only exacerbate those problems. Part of that is due to background noise, which should be reduced by fewer gaming tables being in one room, but does anyone have advice on solving the rest of that equation?
