While attending the New England LARP Conference (NELCO), I was able to see Claus Raasted presentation on Larp Tourism. Simply put larp tourism is traveling to another country to attend a larp you wouldn’t normally go it, using your vacation dollars. This actually changes the mindset of the amount someone is willing to spend. Spending a few thousand dollars on a vacation is much more reasonable then the idea of spending a few thousand dollars to attend one larp event. Spending a few thousand dollars for room, board and battles on a grand scale seems really reasonable.
