Wow, I am totally shocked (positively) now. I am tempted to go there, although Ive never been to Barcelona before... The only issue I see there now is... am I mistaken or arent they even stating where the exact location of the event will be? (A hotel, or Stadium etc) ... All I see is "In Barcelona".  :mutley:

Thank you so much for the links, Rebecca.
I try to get every info I can , too bad I am not on Facebook, maybe I should register there some time to get some infos ;-)

Since I found out about this I am totally hyper and even checked how much a flight would cost in general ... lol
Just a tad bit crazy about Sean  :hellyeah2: But after being a fan for 15 years, it wouldnt matter to me if I had to fly there from Germany (which wouldnt be too bad, its only a 2 hour flight  , the money would be the only issue.) I couldnt miss THAT chance.

...There's just that little part of me that isnt 100% sure about this all... I dont want to sound negative, but one can't be cautious enough nowaways, and I am just wondering why Sean is attending a Convention NOW (I dont think he has ever been to a Con really, except visiting a panel at Comic Con if I am correct, simply for promoting a new movie)...but a REAL Con-Weekend like we experienced here in Germany with the actors ,for example from the Hobbit movies, with Panels, Meet & Greet, Q&A, Photoshoot with your star etc.... I thought Sean would never do that ...or IF then at least in London, which isnt "as far" for him. So, yeah... It makes me wonder why now and why Spain. ;-) Just some thoughts... I guess it has to do with the fact that another Con has promoted Guests like Billy Boyd here in the past, Fans attended and there was nothing there, no actors, nothing.
Perfect would of course be to hear /read Sean say it himself, that he plans to attend there and is basically confirming it.

IF this is all really happening and a few of this forum here actually make it and fly over, we should definitely do a meet up! :-)

Oh, wow! Yes, I would be cautious, too.

Why can't be Spain?, you're wonder, I'm not, Spain is in Europe, it's a great country, GOT is filming in Spain since 3 years ago, lot of movies, here in Spain, I live in Toledo, lot of Hollywod movies filmed here in Spain, the last one, "The Promise" with Chirstian Bale, lot of actors come here in holidays, even politians, Hillary Clinton has been here, Morgan Freeman likes a lot come to Toledo, even Viggo comes very often, he lives in Madrid,

Why are you so wonder in Spain?,

Spain is my country, I'm spanish, be nice with my country JBean787, and remember, lot of germany people lives here in Spain, why?, ask them

theres no need to feel attacked or to wave the patriotic Spain flag, now, Galamb  ;-)

I am in Spain at least once a year for vacation and love it too. I am one of "those germans". I love the nature in Spain, thats why I visit as often as I can.
I dont see a sentence I wrote where I wasnt "nice" about "your country"   ;-) Just saying.

That aside,
I explained in my post why I am wondering about it. Many new conventions pop out of the ground like mushrooms in the last years (which is nice, of course!) But some of them arent AS professional.
One of them, here in Germany, tried immediately to fish for paying guests by announcing big stars who didnt even know about that event in the end... and Sean IS a big star too- thats why I only said I am a bit cautious about it. As you can tell, this hasnt anything to do with Spain as a country, but with professional / unprofessional Convention promoters

I think for now leaning back and waiting for more infos is all we can do :-)
I am still very irritated by the fact that it doesnt have a location.
The many "HobbitCons" I attended in Germany were always held at a certain hotel and town.
I am just missing these little but important details that one needs for booking/planning a trip ... you know?  :crap

Ive just had a look on their Facebook page. They've announced it will take place at the Barceló Sants Hotel and have added a couple more game of thrones guests.

I can see why you're being cautious though. According to some of the comments on the page the organisers have only done 1 convention before and have cancelled a couple due to poor ticket sales.
Someone has also stated that Sean Bean gets invited to bigger conventions and always refused so why would he attend this one? They have answered that he is definitely attending.

GOT is filming in Spain since 3 years ago, even Toledo is in GOT, I know where I live. The directors, the actors, all are very happy here in Spain, For next season, the city of Trujillo will be there, Trujillo is in Cáceres, and of course, they all have gone to "La Troya" it's a very good restaurant, I know it. If never you go to Trujillo, go to that restaurant.

Why not Sean can be in Spain?, as I tell you, Viggo lives in Madrid, in fact, I don't like Viggo. Also Johnny Depp has been here in Toledo for the movie "The Ninth Gate", I'll always remember the day he arrived to Toledo.

Even Robert de Niro for another movie " Archibishop of Peru".

Before LOTR, Viggo was very knew here in Spain because he filmed lot of films here in Spain,

Do you want to know where is Gwyneth Paltrow when she wants to repost?, In Talavera, yes, she comes very often, she got a house there, she was here when she was a teeneger and she speaks very good spanish. She likes a lot her spanish family. The same with me with my french and english family.

It was the same with Christopher Lee: for my generation, he'll always be "Drácula" he also spoke spanish.

Russell Crowe every time he opens a movie, he comes to Spain.

Julia Robert has been here last week.

Nicolas Cage also he comes to Spain very often.

In Spain lot and great things, a great country, and Hollywood likes a lot Toledo for movies. The last one: Christian Bale.

Spain is a great country

Thank you, Layla! I think thats at least a good sign, that it has an official location now where it takes place.
I saw they added some other guests. Tbh they dont interest me that much, I would really just go because of Sean, but its nice to see its slowly getting "more official" . You have a good point there though, and you're right, thats what makes me uncertain about it all- I bet Sean has been invited and asked to come to Cons in the past, probably also the Cons I attended here in Germany (David Wenham, his "brother" Faramir already attended aswell) and he never did any of those, it gives the impression that these kind of gatherings and events are just not his thing - which is totally fine, of course! :-) .... but yeah, why now?  lol It makes one wonder. I guess we can only tell as time develops :-)

I think we have Ashley to thank for this and for his presenting at the BAFTAS this year. He never would participate in the BAFTAS unless he was receiving an award, likewise many other awards shows. He's been doing quite a few firsts since Ashley has become a major player in his professional life. It doesn't mean I like her, but I can see the positive influence she has been on him even though I am sure that she has her own motives and agenda. He may just have found a nanny who can deal with him.

DRAGON RIDERS WITH - SUSPENDED

Posted on 10/11/2017by Always Fans Events
We regret to inform the attendants of "DRAGON RIDERS CON", that in spite of the time and much effort invested by the organization of ALWAYS F. EVENTS, the event is SUSPENDED, postponing the same one without determined date in these moments.

As you all know, yesterday the Government of Catalonia declared the unilateral independence of said Autonomous Community, and before the possible social scene of the city of Barcelona, ​​we must, to suspend this event. This decision is taken as a consequence of not being able to guarantee the security of the actors and of the assistants.

Therefore, we will communicate, in sufficient time, place, day and time of the event. Those who opt for the refund of the amount of the tickets purchased, will be requested and will be automatically returned through the platform EventBrite.

We will personally inform all attendees, via email, the procedure to follow, for those who choose to return the tickets.

Lamenting enormously the current situation, which leads us to make this unwanted decision,

https://alwaysfevents.com/dragon-riders-con-suspendido/
