2013/02/14. Aldis Hodge Cancelation

The Zarata Events team regrets to inform that due to work related reasons, Aldis Hodge has cancelled his appearance in ShowTimeCon. We deeply regret to have to give you the news at only two days to the convention, but we want to make it clear that we have been informed only today and that Aldis himself has decided to explain in this video the reasons for his cancellation:

We apologize to all the attendants. It's been a great disappointment for us too, as we could have never imagined that any of our guests would have to cancel his appearance in such short notice.

We ratify the attendance of Gale Harold, Christian Kane and Steve Carlson. All of them are already flying to or in Bilbao and their presence is 100% confirmed. Those who have his products will have the option to change them for others of the same value, or for a coupon valid to acquire merchandising. Also we'll refund the money in case you are not interested in any product.

Please, ask in the registration desk how to exchange your Aldis' products.

Our apologies, once again.

2012/12/26. Henry Ian Cusick - cancellation.

The team at Zarata Events regret to inform that we have come to the decision to cancel Henry Ian Cusick's participation in the convention. As you all know, we are a non-profit association and we have limited funds, thus the payment of the actors' fees (and their expenses) is made with the funds raised through the passes as well as the products sold by each actor. Unfortunately, regardless of the fact that we still think that Cusick is a great guest, he hasn't piqued enough interest amongst fans for us to able to have him being that the sale of his products has been practically inexistent.

In addition to the financial drawback brought by this, we believe it's very offensive to the actor to bring him to the convention to be put in a position where he will find that there aren't any fans at his Meet & Greets, his photo-ops or to join him at his VIP dinner.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We know it's disappointing, it is even more for us who have tried to wait until last minute in hopes of more of Henry's fans deciding to join us, but it hasn't been possible.

We confirm the attendance of Gale Harold, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane and Steve Carlson, please don't worry. We have an open and fluid communication with the managers of these four guests, and the proceedings have been without difficulty with them.

Obviously, we will refund the money from those of Henry's products that have been sold. People who have acquired said products, please, contact us via e-mail.

Once again, please accept our sincerest apologies.

Zarata Events.


Also this Thursday, December 20, the last 5 dinners with Gale Harold will be put up for auction. Those interested in acquiring one of these dinners will have to send us their offer by email to our email address:

If your bid is out, we'll notify you via email, informing the amount of the lowest bid in case you want to bid again. These five seats will be the closest to Gale, which means that, the person whose bid is highest will be seated next to him during the dinner.

The auction will end on Thursday, December 27 at 8.30pm.

Thank you.

2012/12/19. CLOSE UP.


This Thrusday, December 20 at 8:30pm you'll find in our shop, ShowTimeCon's best activity: Close-Up, an activity that will be held in a different venue than the hotel where all the others are scheduled, a fascinating place. For security reasons, we have decided not to make public the exact location where this activity will take place, but we are sure that it will be an amazing experience both for the convention guests as well as for those fans who venture to take part of it.

All the guests invited to the event will participate in it, except for Christian Kane who hasn't confirmed his attendance to this particular activity. The activity will begin with a Coffee Break where the attendants will share a delightful moment with all our guests. Nearing the middle of the activity and for capacity reasons, the group will have to be divided in two and will remain separated for aproximately an hour until the end, when they will meet again. For this reason, we've decided to offer two kinds of passes at different costs.

Pass-A: This pass allows you to select in which group to stay once they have been divided. The cost of this pass is euro;250.
Pass-B: This pass does NOT allow you to choose what group to stay in once they have been divided. This pass costs €200.

Thank you.

2012/10/23.New batch of products.

The next batch of products will be next Tuesday 30th at 9 pm (spanish time). In this new batch, will be available a new duo Meet & Greet Christian Kane/Steve Carlson. The price of this M&G will be 120€.

VIP Dinners: On 30th October, we are making available at the shop the first batch of tickets for this special activity. Vacancies are very limited. Only 15 people will be able to participate and enjoy of this moment with their favourite guest: Gale Harold, Christian Kane, Aldis Hodge, Henry Ian Cusick or Steve Carlson.

In this first batch only five of the fifteen seats (for each guest) will be made available for you to acquire. Five more in a second batch that will be announced later and, lastly, a third batch that will be auctioned on eBay. We believe this is the fairest way to handle such a limited activity.

The dinners will be available at the shop, like the rest of the products, but due to the short supply we want to emphasize that completing the purchase and receiving the e-mail the store sends by default doesn't guarantee that you have acquired the dinner. Please, wait until you receive a personalised e-mail where the organisation informs you that the dinner is yours effectively. This is a necessary step as, on occasion, the store malfunctions and sends more products than those set. When dealing with photos and Meet & Greets we can vary the amount of sold products, however, we are unable to do so with the special activities.


Gale Harold: 180€
Christian Kane: 150€
Henry Ian Cusick: 150€
Aldis Hodge: 120€
Steve Carlson: 120€

Thank you.

Zarata Events.
