EyeCon Genesis Brings ‘Gilmore Girls’, ‘Gossip Girl’ and ‘90210’ Cast Members to Atlanta
EyeCon Genesis, the first event of its kind, is a three-in-one convention experience featuring cast members from Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl and 90210 that will take place March 17-19, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel and Convention Center. Tickets are now available at eyeconfla.com, from $50-$695.
“The idea is to bring the cast members to the fans in a small setting, to allow them the opportunity to experience their favorite shows in a new way,” Kenny Smith EyeCon Promoter, said. “We’ve put together a new, very special event and hope attendees enjoy having three shows under one roof. We picked Atlanta because it’s like a second home to us, we love the area and have done several successful conventions there. It’s always a good time in Atlanta and we hope that fans appreciate how easy it is to fly into the city and can enjoy the area beyond the walls of the festival.”
EyeCon Genesis offers fans a a unique experience to come face to face with some of their favorite cast members. This event brings fan favorites from three of the CW’s most beloved TV series. EyeCon Genesis put these three shows together under one roof for fans by special request. Attendees from EyeCon’s past conventions made the plea for a multi-show event and these themes were chosen as the most requested.
In the past, fans have come from across the country for a truly magical experience. The schedule for the weekend includes Friday’s check in, bingo, celebrity Q&A and a karaoke night, Saturday promises a full day of photo ops, autographs, more Q&A’s, a banquet and a masquerade party and as the event comes to a close on Sunday, the convention center allows for the final panels and autograph sessions. The activity room and vendor room are open all weekend as long as the convention doors are open. While the event is inside a convention center, the experience is a smaller, close knit feel. With no more than 1,300 people, EyeCon hopes their events feel different than other, larger conventions.
Scheduled appearances by Scott Patterson, Yanic Truesdale, Keiko Agena, Matt Czuchry, Ed Westwick, Kelly Rutherford, Matt Lanter are confirmed. More cast members are expected to join the lineup as the event gets closer.
“We’ve been doing these events since 2006 but this one is quite unique, we think there’s great potential for this group and like any EyeCon event, we’re certain fans will enjoy the experience alongside other fans,” Autumn Dawn, Convention Director, said. “On the inside, we use the term EyeCon family alot. This experience allows for something really neat. Since we spend the weekend inside the walls of the convention center people bond. They bond with cast members and each other. It’s an experience that brings out camaraderie in a different way and we expect this three show event to be a completely unique experience.”
EyeCon brings together like-minded people who love many of the same things. Which, ultimately, guarantees the perfect weekend.
