Fan Expo Vancouver returns to the Vancouver Convention Centre this April 20-21, 2013. Coming off an amazing inaugural year with nearly 17,000 attendees, Comicon Hollywood North is taking the celebration of pop culture to a new level in 2013. Last year the fan convention sold out on its first day, and to accommodate even more fans, special guests, and programming Fan Expo will now move to the East side of the Convention Centre.
Thousands of fanatics will flock to meet film & TV stars, geek-out over new videogames, nab rare comics, and snap pictures with other fans dressed like their favourite characters. The weekend will be packed with gaming tournaments, Q&A sessions, sketching duals, retail and exhibitor areas, and workshops like special effects/make-up.
Fan Expo Vancouver will also host the fourth annual Canadian Videogame Awards on April 20, 2013. The event honours the best and brightest in Canadian videogames, and will be broadcast across the country on G4 Canada and CityTV.

- Stan Lee (Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, The Hulk, The Avengers)
