Ring*Con is Europe´s biggest Fantasy Convention, which was held in Bonn from 02nd till 04th October, 2009, for the 8th time.

Some Information about Ring*Con:

The name Ring*Con was chosen for its being an exclusive Convention for Lord of the Rings for many years. Later the Ring*Con was extended to a Fantasy Convention, with the first non-LotR star guests from Pirates of the Caribbean. This year Ring*Con will be expanded further with Kyle Schmid and Dylan Neal from the Blood Ties TV series and other star guests from the Twilight and Harry Potter movies.
Note: Dylan couldn't make it because he was busy filming.
What will expect me at Ring*con?:

In a Blood Ties Panel Kyle and Dylan will answer the questions of the fans, they will give autographs and have photo sessions, where you can take a picture with them
The Q&A panels will be held in the huge main hall of the congress centre. The star guest is on stage and you can, if you want, ask your question from the audience via microphone.
