Will there be a future Fan Fest Event?

Was well attended. Not overly packed but not empty either. I wouldn't be shocked if they come back.

My guide said it will most likely be back. They also said it's going to be more on the hvff side over Walker stalker and she even said Robbie Amell would have been here but his wife is pregnant

That's a fools endeavor then. Walking Dead remains a much better draw than anything on CW.

It all depends if the dc app takes off with the shows they have you can add some new names and I tying it is better just to do one big show over two.

I would like to see Titans or Doom Patrol actors but not holding my breath. Many of them are well known. This con takes on cheap names.

If anyone I could see Diane Guerrero since she is from NYC. I think they just should leave it combined and you have a ton of room to add guests the artist side towards the photo op side had a ton of room

Cept Robbie and his preggo wife Italia were in Australia with Stephen doing a con. I dont think you will see Robbie or Stephen at HVFF anymore, especially after Stephen's video. He was pretty pissed about the situation, without elaborating on what exactly transpired. Never say never...cuz it always seems these things work themselves out, but I dont suspect it will be anytime soon considering how many celebs dropped out and said they will no longer attend these events.

I haven't followed the hoopla very much. So who was it that did not get paid? Actors? Or was it fans needing refunds in London?

I'm going to Walker Stalker in Cleveland in a couple weeks and was waiting to buy photo ops. They had switched the photos to be done by Volume Ops, a company I assumed to be was a division of the Fan Fest/Walker Stalker company. A week or 2 ago, I went back to look at the photo sale prices and the link on the menu went to a page with the usual sales pitch for photo ops and mentioned Volume Ops but without the link to actually buy photo ops that had been there. Just now I was looking around and that link still went to that page but another link to buy photo ops went to a page where you could actually do that. But instead of Volume Ops the photos now are being sold and done by Froggy's. The whole Fan Fest company is getting sketchier every day.

More bad Fan Fest news - apparently the Nashville show scheduled for two weeks from now has been postponed until January:
Nashville! Behind the scenes we’ve been attempting to work with the venue to reach a resolution to get the event to move forward. After some time, we are unsuccessful and can’t agree on certain terms. These terms have greatly affected the rental cost of the venue. Therefore, for the success of the event and the continued positive growth of the company, we will be moving it to a new date and venue: January 4 & 5, 2020. We made every attempt to stay the same weekend but were unsuccessful.

Well, the only time I remember a con switching venues and dates two weeks out was the Camp Blood fiasco, and we all know how well THAT worked out.
