Heroes And Villains FanFest Does Not Want Bloggers Coverage

Two days ago I just heard about a convention going on just down the street from me called 'Heroes and Villains FanFest' at the San Jose Convention Center. The convention seems to be a CW-based convention, with mostly stars from shows like 'Arrow' and 'The Flash.' And that's cool and all.

Most conventions welcome most bloggers but this one seems to have a different mind to the matter and my take-away is they don't want bloggers convening on the event.

I went to their press page to see if they would consider a late application but their press page says that "Press credentials are for professional reporters and media outlets that accompany a significant national, local, or genre specific exposure."

They further state that credentials will not be approved for bloggers with limited distribution.

The reason they are so hard on allowing coverage is that "Heroes & Villains Fan Fest is a convention for fans, by fans. We welcome the media to be a part of our conventions, but we are not a media convention. Our Heroes & Villains Fan Fest Media Relations are here to help facilitate coverage for your outlet, but our policies are to ensure that our guests have the best interactions possible with the fans."

For a minute I thought most bloggers were fans. Folks like me who tend to watch all their CW content. But heck, it is what it is.

I'm sure they'll be just fine and I look forward to any coverage they end up getting after the event.
