Comic-Con has officially met its match.
What the annual fan convention is for entertainment and comic book enthusiasts, BravoCon is for fans of anything and everything featured on Bravo network.
Fans of the reality-centric Bravo, home to the Real Housewives franchise, Southern Charm, Below Deck and Below Deck: Med, Vanderpump Rules, Top Chef, Project Runway and more flocked to New York City for the three-day event from Nov. 15 to 17.
Tickets to the convention sold out in 60 seconds, and the resale prices surged into the thousands of dollars for the chance to attend a number of panels, events and exhibitions.
The weekend featured the biggest taping of Watch What Happens Live ever, complete with appearances by 76 Bravolebrities and an audience of over 2,000 people.
Other highlights included panels with past and present Housewives; the announcement of an entirely new franchise, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City; brunch with the cast of Southern Charm; a Top Chef dinner; a Vanderpump Rules after-party; and a cabaret show featuring the Real Housewives of New York City’s Luann de Lesseps.
