My prediction for total attendance at the 2006 SLA Annual Conference was made on May 30, 2006. I predicted 5,857:
With all this in mind, I think the 2006 conference attendance will be 5,857.
Total attendance was just announced at the Closing Session: 5,844. I missed by only 13 attendees! Statistically, that's a bullseye (don't ask me to prove it--it has to be).
They don't call me "Mesmerini" for nothing. See the link above for how I reflected on what the attendance might be, then went out on a limb and came within 13 of the actual number!
I am now offering to predict future conference attendance for any upcoming conference, and my fee is priced modestly at $1,000/per prediction. I am also offering a training service for helping other people predict future conference attendance at the humble price of $5,000/per 1-hour online session.
