This last weekend I attended a Rogue Events convention called 'Ravens' for Pretty Little Liars
and One Tree Hill
It was a very small event compared to the company's usual events such as 'Insurgence' (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals
) and 'Asylum' (Supernatural
), as this was their first 'Ravens' event.
High ticket sales usually mean more guests are available, so due to the lack of sales for this event we only got 5 guests. Some events have 10+ guests show up, but that definitely didn't bother the attendees!
Torrey Devitto (aka PLL
's Melissa Hastings) and Keegan Allen (PLL
heartthrob Toby Cavanaugh) attended. As for the cast of OTH,
Lee Norris (Mouth), Antwon Tanner (Skills) and Linsdey McKeon (Taylor James) were on hand for attendees to see.
Fans got to take professional photos with the guests, get autographs and even get to hang out with a guest of their choice in an intimate coffee lounge setting with just a few other fans.
Attending cast members also did a panel/Q&A session with all the fans, which is a fantastic way to ask them all the things you want to know about them or the shows.
What's surprising is that the event did so bad in ticket sales. One Tree Hill
and Pretty Little Liars
conventions typically do well in other countries. I guess the lack of promotion for the event is to blame.
I'm sure if Rogue does another 'Ravens' convention though, it'll improve statistically with better promotion.
If you're in the UK or surrounding countries and
then keep a look out for a possible second convention and grab a ticket! You won't be disappointed, I had so much fun and would love to go again.
