BravoCon took place in New York City this past weekend, honoring the celebrities behind some of the hottest TV shows on Bravo. However, a handful of fans didn’t get in on the fun after they were kicked-out of events due to max-capacity.
Events took place across New York City, with the main event stationed at The Manhattan Center, and other panels and experiences took place at the Skylight Modern and Union West. Attendees took to Twitter to share their experiences. One fan said that on Saturday night, the Manhattan Center reached maximum capacity and began to “eject” general admission ticketholders, saying that only those with VIP tickets could stay.
General admission tickets were going for $299.50, followed by VIP at $574.50 and SVIP at $1,499.50. Despite the pricey general admission ticket, fans complained that they had to endure large lines, an “aggressive” crowd, and did not get the opportunities they paid for.
Since this was the first Bravocon, many are sharing some suggestions for a 2020 edition of the event. Fans note that next year, tickets should be more accessible, allowing the millions of fans who were shut out during the sale an opportunity to vie for tickets. Additionally, they are asking that the event to have a little more organization to avoid long lines and over capacity, along with a potential live stream for those who aren’t able to attend.
The 2019 inaugural edition, which took place from November 15 to 17, featured panels, discussions, and live events featuring stars from The Real Housewives, Top Chef, Vanderpump Rules, Project Runway, and Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
