BravoCon Is Where Bravoholics Meet The Bravolebrities

Welcome to Bravo World, where the stars of Bravo’s unscripted shows are “Bravolebrities” and the Bravo universe is the “Bravoverse.”

Bravo World is a world unto itself -- so much so that the brand throws its own self-styled, annual conventions where rabid fans go to see, hear and meet the stars they love from Bravo’s many unscripted shows.

Later this week, the third annual BravoCon -- as the event is called -- plays out for three days, November 3-5, in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Forum, where the tireless Andy Cohen will be emperor-in-residence.

Bravo says more than 165 of its reality-show Bravolebrities will be in attendance for onstage panel discussions and other contact opportunities for legions of “Bravoholics,” another word coined by Bravo.



This year’s BravoCon2023 is the first to be held in Las Vegas. Last year’s was in New York at the Javits Center. Last year’s BravoCon (pictured above) reportedly drew an estimated 30,000 attendees. 

Also new: This year’s show will be televised -- i.e., streamed on Peacock. 

Starting Friday, November 3, “Peacock subscribers will have access to the ultimate fan experience,” said a press release from Peacock, “including exclusive panels, five episodes of ‘BravoCon Live with Andy Cohen!,’ and interviews with Bravo’s buzziest Bravolebrities” (try saying that three times fast).

Plans call for new BravoCon content to be added to Peacock through November 10.

So, how does a cable network come up with 165-plus reality-show stars for a single event? By maintaining one of the biggest stables of reality shows and spin-offs in all of television.

The TV Blog counted 39 on the Bravo section of the NBCUniversal press site maintained for journalists on the TV beat.

These titles include six “Below Deck” shows (about the crews of superyachts), 13 from the “Real Housewives” universe, at least two “Top Chef” shows and more.

Tickets for BravoCon are not cheap. Last Friday afternoon, general admission tickets for the three-day Vegas show were priced at $1,035 apiece on StubHub. So-called VIP tickets were going for $3,499 each.
