Summit To Spread Twilight Conventions Everywhere
The problem with fan conventions as a promotional device is that they mostly attract only fans in the areas of the country where they're being staged. Summit Entertainment aims to overcome that disadvantage by staging 20 -- count 'em, 20! -- three-day conventions for Twilight fans beginning in March of next year. A news release said that fans will be able to meet such Twilight cast members as Kellan Lutz and Ashley Green. Conspicuous by their absence from the announcement were stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. Summit, which is partnered with Creation Entertainment for the traveling conventions, said that the conventions will also include screenings of clips from the Twilight movies, panel discussions, photo ops, contests, and wine-and-cheese parties. In a statement, Creation V.P. Erin Ferries said, "This is really about different people coming together who share the same passion and love for, not only the books, but the movies, and come to immerse themselves around Twilight ."
