From TV shows to comic books to hobbies and everything in between, fans of just about anything can find a convention where they can meet their idols, make new friends and purchase all of the merch their hearts desire. Now, there’s yet another new convention calling all reality television fans to assemble.
On Tuesday (April 16), MTV announced their brand new summit “REALITYCON,” a convention centered around reality television and its impact on the TV landscape. The convention will see a soft launch later this fall, with the inaugural event slated to take place in the summer of 2020, and more events to take place worldwide after.
According to a press release, cast members, producers and executives from the genre will attend the event for special interviews, fan activations, panels and more, including shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race, Love & Hip Hop, The Real World, Survivor, The Bachelor and more.
The event comes as MTV and its parent company Viacom aim to create more live programming for fans; earlier this year, MTV renewed its Spring Break programming, as stars like Tyga, City Girls, and Zara Larsson traveled down to Cancun to perform at a series of live shows for the event. Later this year, MTV will launch its first ever SnowGlobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe from December 29 – 31, with the lineup to be announced.
