Twilight Convention in Dallas – TwiCon 2009

This is an unofficial Twilight convention, but it does seem to have some pull to it. Of course, I think they can pull in the actors because it cost $255 to get in to this thing. Fortunately for them, there are die hard fans out there that will pay this price, thus giving the promoters incentive to keep doing it.

Why does it cost $255?

TwiCon 2009 is the first US conference of this size for fans of Stephenie Meyer, but it's not the first of its kind.  Many hours of research and number crunching went into determining the cost of admission into TwiCon 2009.  We looked at other conventions and used the experience of our managing team to determine costs.  There are rental fees for space and equipment, speaker fees and travel accommodations for special guests, staffing fees, insurance, credit card processing fees, website maintenance, food and a number of other costs that must be covered.  We have kept the cost as low as possible while still ensuring a quality event.

And I thought $20 was a lot to ask, but I’ll never complain again.

Have you seen prices like this before? If you are a fan, would you pay this price? And if you did, show me your photos!
