2006-2007 Season Report, part 2: Growth Figures Show 30% Overall Growth

Hi Everyone! The 2006-2007 Season that just ended in June has again been our most successful one ever. IGDA Finland has seen some serious growth in several areas. All statistics have grown a steady one-third since last year.

In this post, we will share some of the impressive statistics of our growth and success this year. So all number nuts and chart buffs, this is for you! :)

First and foremost, our average gathering attendance hit 127.6 attendees/gathering, breaking the 100 mark this season, with a growth of over 30% compared to previous season. Even if we exclude the sponsored events (with the free beer), the average attendance is 109.3 attendees/gathering, still making it above the 100 mark.

The membership has grown this season as well, reaching 208 members at season's end this summer, breaking the 200 mark. Compared to end of last season, that's a growth of 28%.

The reach of our invitation mails has increased on par to other figures. At the end of the season, our invitations reached 705 people, a 31% growth since start of the season.
