[edit] History

This show began to grow in 1994 as a simple weekend tradeshow called the Manitoba Collector's Expo. Back in 1994 we did everything from sportscards to antiques to toys and comic books. As times changed, so did the event, and in 2000 it became the Manitoba Toy & Comic Expo, dropping the antiques and reducing the sportscards.

In 2006, the show exploded as the Manitoba Comic Con, and brought in attendees from all over Manitoba and North Dakota. The show focused on toys, comic books, gaming, anime, and local artists.

In 2007 it brought in the media aspect with David Prowse, Richard Hatch and Margot Kidder.

In 2008 it moved to the Winnipeg Convention Centre with guests like Lou Ferrigno, Jeremy Bulloch, LeVar Burton, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Charlie Adler and John de Lancie.

It is one of the fastest growing shows with an attendance well over 16,000 in 2008 and it is Central Canada's largest convention celebrating the best in comic books, science fiction, gaming, anime, fantasy, horror and pop culture.
