Anime Expo has more people, but...

Looking at the list of events, guests, and dealers for both AX and Otakon, it seems that Otakon has more of all.
Or am I reading this wrong?
(I've never been to AX, but I am trying to determine if it's worth the trip).
you are correct! my time at AX this year was: Friday: industry hall. Saturday: Morikawa Toshiyuki panel; industry hall. Sunday: Industry hall, guest reception ($ was more than my AX ticket), Monday: Industry hall, panel where panelists didn't show up. We missed 2 of the other seiyuu panels we wanted to see and autographs aren't listed on any schedule, so i missed sawashiro miyuki completely
sooooooooo much more programming at otakon. though i got crispin freeman, wendee lee (i wish i knew she was gonna be there D:), and stephanie sheh's (i can't seem to ever spell her name right) autographs at the the one industry table. I guess being in LA has that perk of getting VAs to promote at their table without really being guests. (Sweet folks tho. Wendee was super nice)
