Today, the people behind the Calgary and Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expos announced that the shows are joining the Fan Expo HQ family of shows that includes shows in Toronto, Regina, Vancouver, Dallas, Boston as well as the MegaCon brand shows in Orlando and Tampa Florida.
The Calgary Expo has grown steadily since the mid-2000’s and is now a massive entertainment event that is one of the biggest events of it’s kind in Canada, and North America in general.
Please note: The Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo is not part of the arrangement and the organizers behind the Saskatoon event have announced they plan to continue the show as an independent entity again.
To be up front about this, I am the Comic Relations Coordinator for Fan Expo HQ as well as the director of these awards, and I am now booking for the Calgary and Edmonton events.
I’ll be working to ensure that those events have well managed comics sections with a great selection of comics talent as guests. The comics team at Fan Expo HQ is very excited about the possibilities and personally, I am excited to be returning to the Calgary Expo again after many years absence.
