Fan Expo Canada (Vancouver from April 18 to 20)

Hey Anime fans,

Thanks to Yan Li for suggesting and filling in the details for this event.

Fan Expo is an annual 3 day event dedicated to Geek Culture and anything else that has a fandom to it. It has big name guests that come out to it every year who host their own panels, sign autographs and talk to fans. There is also a large dealers area where you can buy anything related to your fandom.

The event has already been running for 2 years and I've been to both. The only reason I haven't been posting it here is because it's not exclusively an anime event. However, we have had several members requesting we do a meetup for it so we shall.

A deluxe pass for all 3 days will cost you 69 dollars. Friday, Saturday and Sunday individually will cost 20, 35 and 30 respectively. You can purchase them here: http://www.fanexpovancouver.com/tickets

In case your wondering,

Here are the Guests: http://www.fanexpovancouver.com/guests

Here are the Attractions: http://www.fanexpovancouver.com/attractions

You can feel free to tag along with me and possibly others by Txting me at[masked] so I can tell you where we are.

At about 6pm each day we will meet at the food court across the street to eat some grub and chat about our day.

Look forward to seeing a bunch of you out. Should be a really fun weekend.

    Sorry I didn't actually get to meet up with anyone, the cell phone reception was terrible most of the weekend for me. :( Had a blast, though, maybe you saw me running around -- I was Chell from Portal on Saturday and Kairi from Kingdom Hearts today~ :D

      Yeah. I asked every chell if they where in VAM and no of them where :(

      ... haha, it was pretty bad on Rogers too. It was feast or famine... signal either was super good or it completely lacked.

  • Daniel F.

    Anything I might have found interesting is probably going to be over before I get out there. I'm probably going to skip the actual con today and tomorrow.

    April 19, 2014

    • Daniel F.

      I'm still in Vancouver and headed towards EXP I can still do the dinner with everyone.

  • C.K. L.

    What is the food situation like on-site? Is it overpriced & brutal, or will there be some decent eats?

    April 17, 2014

    • C.K. L.

      Cheers!

      April 18, 2014

    • Noel

      Ohh. On site. not sure. I mostly plan to eat after.

  • Sea L.

    question!. i have a sword which i am using for the convention. the weapon rule states that no metal is allowed. i will be cutting the long sharp metal piece off, so i can just clue the sleeve and the handle together.
    HOWever, the top of the handle is still metal. is that allowed?

    April 17, 2014

    • Noel

      I'm not really sure. I guess if it's just the handle then it should be alright.

      April 18, 2014

    • Sea L.

      ok:) thanks!

      April 18, 2014

  • obi-wan b.

  • C.K. L.

    April 17, 2014

  • Daniel F.

    I wasn't originally going to bother going, but some unfamiliar faces are going, so I guess I'll pop in on a day or two and meet some new people.

    April 16, 2014

  • Noel

    I think we'll move the Friday dinner to 9 since the con starts later that day. We might try the EXP but I highly doubt we'll get in so ummm. I'll take a look around.

    April 15, 2014

  • Sailor J.
