Q. Where is LOST 2020 being held?
A. LOST 2020 will be held in Honolulu, Hawaii to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the series finale of LOST.
Q. Will the cast be attending in 2020?
A. Yes! Daniel Roebuck, who played Dr. Leslie Arzt on LOST, is scheduled to join us for our Q&A and Autograph Session. We are also talking with several other cast members about attending and will have more information as we get closer to the event.
Q. I see you’re doing exclusive photo ops but don’t see a way to purchase. When will they be available?
A. We want to wait until we have almost all of our cast for the Q&A booked so we can offer all exclusive photo ops for sale at one time, as they will be limited. Look for them to go on sale in early 2020.
Q. I’m not going to the filming location tours. What should I do during this time?
Consider it free time! All attendees pay the same fee and have this as “down time” during the event – you can pay to go on the tours or you can do something else on the island. There’s a lot to see and do.
I’ve always enjoyed going on the filming location tours with other attendees – even though I’ve done them before – because there’s something special about seeing those locations with other LOSTies. Including people who are new to our event!
Q. I’ve attended previous events and notice the price is higher this year. Why is that?
A. It’s simply because we’re doing more. In 2014 we never left the venue (tours were a separate fee) and Jorge Garcia graciously donated his time which made it possible for the cost to be lower. In 2017, we had more events and left the venue going off property to Dharmaville which is why the fee doubled in 2017 from 2014.
To commemorate the series finale in 2020, we are doing larger scale events: showing both the LOST pilot and finale at filming location sites, bringing in cast which has never been part of our event model (even in 2014), hosting two receptions, an exclusive tour of Kualoa Ranch and other things you can see on the schedule. In order to do these things, we had to raise the fee.
I understand the costs associated with coming to Hawaii and know that it is not inexpensive. I hope that opening registration sooner than I had anticipated will allow time to plan and to save – which is something I am also doing.
Q. Where do the fees from the event go?
A. A great question! All of the fees from the event go 100% to event costs. From big things like venues, audio/visual, food/beverage, talent (cast) costs, the screens we’ll need for the screenings of the pilot/finale to small things like the name badges or welcome bags – it is all covered by the fees. I actually pay for some costs myself when the event isn’t running (web hosting, postage, etc.).
The event does not cover my expenses. I pay for my own airfare and hotel room. I’m an attendee just like you are.
Q. I’d like to volunteer for LOST 2020. How can I help out?
A. First and foremost, thank you! I’m always looking for volunteers to help on-site in Hawaii. I’m collecting names and emails and will be in touch as we get closer to the event with more information. Please email me and I’ll be in touch. Thanks again!
