Anthrocon 1999 was the first Anthrocon to be held in the Philadelphia area; more specifically, it was held at the Valley Forge Hilton in Valley Forge, PA, on 1-4 July, 1999. This convention was also the debut of Dr. Samuel "Kagemushi" Conway as chairman, a position he has held to date.
The convention had 845 members, of which 804 were in attendance.This was almost as many attendees as ConFurence 10, and a little over 100 more than a new convention in California known as Further Confusion.
The charity auction raised $3,600 for the Great Valley Nature Center.
- "We ended up with a total of 845 people paid or registered (the latter category [unpaid/registered] is reserved for staff, guests, etc.). Of these, we have a count of 807 actually checked in. (This latter count may be off by +- 3, due to some update funkiness.)" - From Points, via Anthrocon internal correspondence
