HLWW9 Convention Announced

Highlander WorldWide, the official fan club for the Highlander franchise, is delighted to announce that April 2009 will see a return in location to the country, city and hotel that served us so well for the Walkabout Workshop in 2005. Unlike that event, which showcased 4 episodes and the actors and crew from those episodes, this is HLWW's first full regular 'convention' in the USA and we are very excited about it.

After serious consideration about all options and venues, HLWW9 will see us back at the Westin LAX from April 24th to 26th 2009. It's only a short distance from Los Angeles airport and downtown attractions and a location no stranger to big conventions and events having also hosted the Reunion convention. The hotel - which already had great facilities when we ran the Walkabout event - has had even more improvements in the last year and there will be activities in several areas including the popular theatre venue itself. The Westin are glad to have us back, we're delighted to be returning and we've organized a particularly low and attractive block rate for bedrooms there.
As for guests, HLWW will have an extensive line-up of not only 'the' major star/s of the show but also a number of additional guests who helped to make the franchise so successful.
