Crazy Good Ideas by Glynis

Fan Expo Vancouver

For the most part, I do enjoy doing conventions, although sometimes it’s hard when you do back to back conventions. It’s exhausting. I enjoy visiting new cities which is a great perk of doing shows. But sometimes you just want to sleep in your own bed. That’s why I was so happy when they announced Fan Expo was coming to Vancouver. This is huge especially for Vancouverites, since we’ve never had a major comiccon in our city. So the fact that we could do a show in our hometown and not have to travel was awesome news to my ears.

For the days leading up to the show, there was talk about estimated attendance. Perhaps 2,000…maybe 5,000 tops. Word must of got out fast because by Saturday afternoon, the lineups were so long, they lead outside onto the street. At one point, there was word that they had to stop tickets sales due to over capacity. The turnout was more than everyone could have imagined.

For a long time, we needed a show like this in Vancouver. And I’m glad the staff at HobbyStar/ Fan Expo Canada recognized that and were able to put together a show that generated buzz around the city. Overall we had an amazing experience and we’re looking forward to being part of it again in 2013. Thanks to our many fans who came by our booth. It was great chatting with you in person. I like to tell everyone that we are a local design company from Vancouver and we are so proud to part of such a great event in our hometown. Here’s some pictures I took from last weekend’s Fan Expo Vancouver.
