thirdgreenham posted a topic in Comic Book EventsThis is the announcement thread for the Calgary Comic Expo in 2018. The dates are April 26-29, 2018. I will be set up with my standard 2 booths, same location, right beside/behind @500Club, @kimik, @Artboy99, and @thehumantorch. I'm hoping that my buddy @aardvark88will set up again, too. This is always a great show, and by far, my favourite show to set up at and to attend, every single year. On top of the high attendance, the strong sales, and the decent guests, the great group of boardies that come to Calgary, make this easily the single best "must attend" show. In the title of this thread, you can see I wrote (Fan Expo Canada). Well, the news announced today says that the Calgary Expo and Fan Expo (Informa) have joined forces. Only time will tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I, myself, liked the way the Calgary Expo was run. Other than the unnecessarily strict demands of the staff running around citing Fire Marshal this and Fire Marshal that, the show was excellent the way it was. This joining of the two teams hopefully brings more big name comic and celebrity guests to the show, and my fingers are crossed that this doesn't lead to booth cost hikes for 2019. I'll keep adding to this thread with updates on guests announced and news. @Kevin Boyd, if you know any details or if you're the guy who's supposed to post the updates as they come, feel free.
