Highlander WorldWide has always tried to give fans the best experience possible. Our 2017 event in Los Angeles was a great success with a large turn-out of attendees and guests… and we said at the time that we couldn’t see a way to run a better event any time soon! Even given that position, for most of the last eighteen months, many people couldn’t even travel to see their own families, so another physical convention would have proved impossible!
The question became not so much ‘How could we do an even better event?’ but rather ‘What could we do that doesn’t require everyone to stand six feet apart, even in the event of a Quickening?’
As if by a kind of magic…
Adrian Paul and his SXP team were discussing running an online Highlander convention, but due to his upcoming work commitments it became clear in the last few weeks that it wasn’t going to be possible for him to fully commit to running the event this summer. With everyone’s blessing, the Highlander WorldWide team has stepped into the breach and are proud to announce our own event…
WATCHERCON, a virtual Highlander convention that will run on Saturday 21st – Sunday 22nd August 2021… in your living room!
Over two days, the online event will bring a raft of talent to, well… watch on your tv/monitor. Some of those faces are familiar fan favorites… some have never attended a HLWW event before. With a mixture of live panels with audience questions, recorded interviews, an opportunity to catch up with old friends in the ‘lobby’ area, merchandise booths and more, the same team that brought you physical Highlander WorldWide events for over two decades will be literally, virtually unbeatable.
We look forward to seeing you all again…
For physical, on-location events, there are many basic costs to cover: travel, accommodation and registration.
For Watchercon and its virtual environment, we are able to run the event with far less overheads and thus reduce the amount we have to charge for attending.
The cost for attending the two-day event is $30 which will gain you access to the full slate of panels and talks – as well as the opportunity to browse guests’ booths. Those who pay the event registration will also be able to watch the recordings of those panels whether or not they originally participated.
(Merchandise / autographs etc offered by the guests may incur a separate charge).
As in previous events, we will be using the secure Ticket-Spice platform to process registrations and you can get full details by clicking the link above or here…
As with HLWW‘s physical conventions the rules are few but largely based on common sense and consideration for others.
HLWW expects basic good manners from all attendees and reserves the right to remove a participant, without recompense, if their behavior is seen to be disruptive, rude or a hinderance to the running of the event. Attendees should not seek a guest’s endorsement of any product or service during the convention.
Many guests will be appearing ‘live’. Their views on any subjects discussed are their own and may not be those of HLWW. We expect that all the panels will be ‘family-friendly’ but cannot absolutely guarantee content / language in the moment.
All advertised guests have formally confirmed their intention to be featured in / attend the event, but that participation is based on work commitments. Should a guest have to withdraw, that will not entitle a attendee to a refund. (In over two decades, HLWW has never cancelled an event, but in the case that the convention is unable to take place ahead of time, full refunds will be given).
