Risks and challenges

The biggest risk and challenge we face is making sure that we get enough ticket sales. This will depend on the celebrities, actors and special guests we have committed and can advertise.

We have quality relationships with agents and representatives of celebrities in this genre with our Walker Stalkers podcast. We believe those relationships will come in very handy as we book the guests for this convention.

We have done significant homework on other conventions. We have seen that the quality of the guests significantly impacts ticket sales. We believe this will be a great time of the year for this event also. As it gets colder and promotion of horror and zombie films and shows are at their peak, it is a good time to promote a horror and zombie convention.

We are only opening this up to 10 people. And, within reason - you don't want to annoy the celebrities, but we will give you all access - that's pretty cool. Just make sure you respect the space of each special guest during the time - just like we would.
