    Default Fan Expo Vancouver- April 21 & 22, 2012

    Hey guys

    Just learned of a new convention. Happening here in Vancouver, the weekend before Creation Stargate Vancouver.

    It is Fan Expo Vancouver. A spin-off of the popular Fan Expo which happens each summer in Toronto. This is Canada's verison of Comic Con (San Diego).

    So can't wait. Since I have be saying for a while that they needed to have a multi genre event here in Vancouver. Since many of the tv shows and movies that are featured at the convention. Are filmed right here.

    Awesome!..hope they get LOTS of guests......and if he's not busy filming in Toronto, maybe Michael, especially as he went to the one in Toronto this year with Lexa....now that's one I seriously might reconsider trying to get a cheap flight out for next year....will hang around and wait and see which guests are listed.....

    OMG!!..and it's being held at the Convention Centre opposite the hotel where we usually stay...this is getting more and more tempting by the minute....and a lot cheaper for us than Creation as I expect there'll be only a nominal entry charge and then I can choose photo ops and autos as and when I want...


    Thanks for this info...I shall bookmark it with interest....

    This is great news! At least there's another con to look at to attend once the Stargate Creation con no longer happens in Vancouver. Should be more affordable too! Maybe not next year after shelling out for the Creation con, but then again, depending on who turns up on the guest list, the credit card is once again my good friend!

    And it may become my con to go too in the future years as well. Since it will be a easy commute across the water instead of to Burnaby.

    That's turned out to be really handy commute wise for you!

    Makes my commute a bit longer, and more expensive as I have to pay for parking. I have to drive because the West Coast Express doesn't run on weekends, so I would have to take two buses just to get to the nearest Skytrain station, which is time consuming and really annoying. If I give the sorrowful pleading look to my hubby he usually drives me to the nearest Skytrain station,and picks me up too. I always try to avoid driving into Downtown Vancouver if I can.

    Get practicing that look. Yeah the West Coast express drives me nuts. I have a friend out in Abbotsford. And since the train only runs downtown during the morning. And out again in the late afternoon. If I wanted to visit her. I would have to take it out in the evening and stay over and then come back in the morning.

    Did anybody notice that Tony Amendola has been added to the Vancouver Expo? As has John de Lancie, along with Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn.

    What a terrible time to be between jobs and have two events so close together.
