Bravo in August 2021 announced that BravoCon 2021 was being canceled over COVID-19 concerns.

BravoCon launched in 2019 with attractions ranging from Real Housewives panels, photo opps with the stars, and even an epic version of Watch What Happens Live with the cast of numerous Bravo shows.

Bravo launched in December 1980 originally as a commercial-free premium cable channel. The network converted to a basic cable channel in the mid-1980s and started accepting traditional commercial advertising by 1998.

Bravo rose to prominence in 2003 with the reality series Queer Eye For The Straight Guy and started adding more reality programming.
