“The Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo returns September 28-29, 2013 to the Edmonton Expo Centre to celebrate all things pop culture. Coming off a highly successful inaugural year in 2012, the second annual Edmonton Expo has expanded to over 150,000 sq.ft of exhibit space providing fans with triple the action. With more space to explore over the two days fans can feed their inner geek with celebrity Q&A panels, autograph & photograph sessions, exhibitors, workshops, and more.”
