The convention was canceled last year due to the coronavirus crisis, which shut down nearly all live events. This year, with vaccinations widely available, Bravo will hold the event in person, with COVID-19 protocols in place that follow state and local orders.
BravoCon began in 2019 and was a smash hit, selling out tickets and attracting nearly 10,000 attendees to celebrate their favorite Bravolebrities. More than 90 stars from the network appeared during the weekend.
The 2019 event featured Housewives galore, plus stars from “Below Deck,” “Million Dollar Listing,” “Southern Charm,” “Top Chef,” “Vanderpump Rules,” “Summer House” and more. Andy Cohen filmed “Watch What Happens Live” from the convention with more than 75 Bravolebrities on stage.
The 2021 lineup has yet to be unveiled, but will include interactive experiences, live performances, insider panels, immersive activations, exclusive content, marketplace shopping and access to Bravo’s shows and talent. Further details will be announced at a later date, but the network promises that “producers and talent will spill the tea on all things Bravo.”
“Close to ten thousand fans experienced our first ever BravoCon and I’m so excited to bring the Bravosphere to life again,” said Ellen Stone, exec VP of consumer engagement and brand strategy at NBCUniversal Cable. “The passion of our attendees combined with the enthusiasm from our talent set the standards super high for our second Con which we plan to be even more memorable.”
BravoCon 2021 will be held from Oct. 15 to Oct. 17.
