I think this is changing. For the past two years Naka-kon has had a
majority over age 18 (57% in 2011). It's a trend that our fans are growing
up with us and staying with us as they get older, and they outnumber the
newer people we're attracting. I'm a little concerned that this means we're
going to have the same issues as Lit cons in 20 years, where we've spent too
much time catering to growing people with us and not attracting younger
people, but only a tiny bit. It's something to be aware of, but not lose
sleep over imo.
