According to Sunburst, many talented entertainers will be in attendance for this event.

"In celebrity style, multiple celebrity impersonators, lookalikes and tribute artists, as well as agents, producers, talent buyers and more, will be arriving to the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando from all over the country, if not countries!"

Producer Greg M. Thompson, of The Sunburst Convention, with wife, Jackie, are currently busy preparing for the event.

"This is the 11th Sunburst Convention, and it has been held every year in Orlando. It has also been hosted each year by us plus a team of 'experts!'" - The Thompsons

After more than a decade of producing such a convention, the Thompsons, and the Sunburst Team, have a healthy handle on what works!
