The latest membership figures were released during Worldcon 75’s staff meeting last weekend.
- Attending: 4,488
- Total membership number: 6,944
This includes 1,141 First Worldcon memberships.
The con has gained almost 800 members since the update published in Progress Report #4, vaulting it into second place as the largest Worldcon outside North America.
In fact, with so many attending members they may need to find that missing seat —
The Hugo Ceremony will have 4359 seats, not 4360 seats. Apparently one was stolen. *gasp* pic.twitter.com/EGMeZ6rtdA
