"Hungarian mini 'AvCon' a hit!"

Hungarian mini 'AvCon' a hit!
POSTED BY: Andrea Stockton

On Tuesday June 16, 2009, Kevin Sullivan met with an enthusiastic group of Avonlea fans in Budapest, Hungary.
Kevin Sullivan was travelling with the Sullivan Entertainment sales team to Hungary for the Discop Sales market and was asked to take some time to reminisce about his renowned television series, Road to Avonlea. Fans from across the country rearranged their schedules, skipping exam preparation or even their work, to meet Kevin.
Engulfed in Hungarian hospitality, Kevin made a presentation about his best memories from the series along with answers to fans’ most pressing questions. Afterwards, there were many photos, smiles and autographs. A great time was had by all who attended.
Strangely, this entire event was the result of a single entry on Twitter. When Kevin ‘tweeted’ that he was going to Budapest, a member of the Avonlea Convention planning team, Zsolt Kozak, saw this as an opportunity for the many Hungarian Avonlea fans to experience a bit of the feel of an Avonlea Convention without having to travel to North America. Zsolt contacted Kevin, who eagerly agreed.
