ABC Television and Creation Entertainment will be developing the official "Lost" fan club, with special events that will take place in cities around the world for the hit ABC television series from Touchstone Television.

Creation has organized over 2,300 events in major cities throughout the globe. An early innovator of marketing and merchandising to the fan market, Creation manufactures studio licensed apparel, glassware and collectibles.
