Once Conventions.

The Convention Life.

A lot of people always ask me how I meet so many of the cast members and my answer is conventions. Obviously I also meet them on set but for the first couple of years I met them at weekend cons. I have come to learn that many people are unaware that Once Upon A Time conventions are happening all across the world. Convention companies are finally starting to see that there is a market for this show in their businesses. So this is why I am writing this blog post. I want to let you all know the conventions that are happening that you may not of been aware of. Also I want to give the people that aren't aware a low down of what is a convention and what happens while you are there.

What is a convention?

.It is a weekend event where you are able to come together with many other fans of the show and meet some of the stars of said show.
.The guests will have Q&A panels that fans can ask questions and gain knowledge.
.You can buy autographs from the guests.
.Have a professional photograph with the guests.
.Buy Meet and Greet passes with the guests and have a 30 minute (depending on the convention) talk with around 20 other people in a room.
