Twilight star Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast could be getting up close and personal with fans very soon.
Taking a page from the cult success of the “Star Trek” franchise, “Twilight” movie producer Summit Entertainment is planning to launch a series of conventions for Twilight fans over the next three years during the course of the film series’ run.
The first convention will be held just outside New York, Aug. 28 at the Hilton Parsippany Hotel in Parsippany, N.J..
Other weekend conventions will follow in Chicago; Miami; Seattle; Nashville; San Francisco; Atlanta; Los Angeles; Charlotte, N.C.; Minneapolis; Phoenix; Boston; Toronto; and Portland, Ore

Summit Entertainment has partnered with Creation Entertainment to produce the "Twilight" fan conventions, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The conventions will be similar to the highly successful Star Trek conventions, that have managed to keep that franchise alive for more than 40 years.
They will feature onstage appearances by "Twilight" celebrities, screenings of exclusive footage, panel discussions, parties, musical performances, costume and trivia competitions, auctions, autographing, merchandising and photo opportunities.
"Twilight" fan sites, including twilightlexicon.com and twilightmoms.com, will take part with special presentations as part of the convention tour.
"The Twilight Saga: New Moon," the second movie in the franchise adapted from Stephenie Meyer's best-selling books, opens theatrically in North America on November 20.
