With Game of Thrones retaining its stranglehold on mainstream culture and fantasy fans alike, HBO has created an exclusive fan event to capitalize on the show’s lasting popularity. Themed Entertainment is bringing the Game of Thrones Official Fan Convention to Las Vegas next year to honor the upcoming “House of the Dragon”, a prequel series to the Emmy-winning show. The event, which will take place at the Rio Hotel & Suites Convention Center from February 18-20, 2022, promises an “action-packed experience” for lovers of the fantasy epic.
The event will include all of the usual convention cuisine, such as special guests, cosplay and trivia competitions, plenty of panels, autograph signings and picture ops, as well as the sale of exclusive Game of Thrones products. There is currently no schedule or guest list available, but the entire schedule, as well as ticket prices and on-sale dates, will be available in the coming months.
Warner Bros Senior Vice President Peter van Roden Themed Entertainment stated his enthusiasm for the event, which relies on the enduring devotion of fans who have watched the series since its debut in 2011:
“Game of Thrones is a cultural phenomenon with an incredible fanbase, and we are thrilled to be celebrating both with the first official Game of Thrones fan convention. This is an exciting initiative, growing one of our beloved global franchises and allowing fans to become even more immersed in the world of Westeros and beyond. This will be a truly unforgettable experience that loyal and new fans alike will love and enjoy.”
Game of Thrones hasn’t slowed down since its “Iron Anniversary,” which marked ten years since the series first aired on HBO, and fans may expect “House of the Dragon” to launch in 2022. While we wait for official ticket prices and offerings, fans may now watch (or replay) the full season of Game of Thrones on HBO Max.
