What is this?

With the current Covid-19 epidemic, there is currently no way to have physical international guests attend any of the 2020 (and probably 2021) due to quarantine rules and travel restrictions.
Faced with this issue, Armageddon has created an all new experience for all of our events in 2020 that is unique to NZ… A Virtual Guest experience with a live audience.

For all of our 2020 events we will be hosting a wide variety of celebrity TV and Movie stars, Animation voices and more on the events stages, with the guest beaming in from overseas and on to massive screens on the events stages to interact with attendees and our stage host directly.
This will allow fans to have the full celebrity experience, ask questions directly and interact in real time with stars from all over the world.
This will also allow Armageddon to bring guests who we could not normally host, due to either filming or time restrictions, opening up a massive variety of talent far beyond what we could normally offer.
For example, currently we plan to be hosting stars from The Flash TV series at all of our 2020 events, something that we would not normally be able to do as they film during the events dates, but entirely possible with virtual appearances.

Due to the nature of the virtual guest, we will not be announcing the event schedule for each event until 2 weeks before each event as we will need to work in with international time zones and filming schedules, which will be a bit tricker than our usual schedule arrangements.

Each Virtual guest will only be appearing for ONE, one-hour panel at each event, making each day unique, but also making each panel a must have.
This will also allow us to bring groups of guests to the event for cast reunions and special events, for example, for the Auckland event we currently have a large group of guests from Star Trek Discovery and Babylon 5 planned for mini conventions within the event, this is something that we could not offer previously at this level.

Unfortunately, this does also mean that we will not be able to offer Autograph and Photo opportunities as we have done in the past.

We will also potentially have a small number of guests present at shows if they are in NZ at the event dates (either international stars filming in NZ, or kiwi stars).
