Sad Times, Vancouver Comic Book & Entertainment Expo Cancelled

Vancouver Expo LOGOThe Pacific Northwest is dealt a blow when Brasco Exhibitions announced on Facebook on July 5th that the 2016 Vancouver Comic & Entertainment Expo, set for August 5-7 at BC Place, will not be going forward. Unlike IFCon in Victoria, BC, thankfully the information was put out a good month away so not to anger fans who purchased tickets only to find out too late that the show is not happening.

The company will be issuing refunds through this company’s ticketing agent. As for how they will handle combo tickets which allow entry to Anime Revolution, no further comments has been made. For those people who have finalised their plans for travelling to this city, the option exists to enjoy this other convention.

Whatever the reason for this convention to not go forth, no rampant speculation is needed. The calendar for pop culture events in this region can be considered busy with certain months being “prime” for fans of pop culture to get their geek on. Trying to find a perfect time is touch when considering March / April has Emerald City Comicon and Sakuracon, August has Anime Evolution and Revolution (expanding to include a February event), October with Spark Animation Film Festival and in November, the new date for Fan Expo Vancouver. There’s rumours Anglicon will change dates (was in June last year, August this year). Smaller shows take place in this city year-round.

For further inquiries, the company asked to be contacted at:
