The number of people attending the 2014 Annual Meeting exceeded any since the centennial of the annual meeting in Philadelphia; 885 folklorists and friends came together in Santa Fe.

 

Of that number, almost a quarter were students (215), and slightly more than a quarter identified themselves as first-time attendees (236).

 

The number of international attendees is growing: 125 (14% of registrants) came, representing 26 countries, with the most from Canada (35) and China (26), and 5 continents (Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America).
