The Forest City ComiCon has its 2020 date set for Saturday, June 27 at Centennial Hall in London, Ontario. The event will mark the seventh Forest City ComiCon since its inception in 2014. The show, which features a full two floors of exhibits, interactive displays, panel presentations, and games, will be returning once again to Centennial Hall after changing venues last year in an effort to return to its roots and keep rising costs down for fans.
“We were very pleased with how the show went this past June,” explained board member John Houghton. “Attendance was very strong and having the show back in its original venue had the right community feel we were trying to get back to.”
Being back in the original venue also allowed organizers to lower costs for fans and exhibitors.
“By doing things the way we did them, we were able to have our fan admissions offered between $15-$20 and have kids 12 and under continue to enter free of charge. On the convention circuit, we’ve been delivering amazing value and we plan to continue on that path.”
Tickets for the event as well as guest news and event schedule are set to be released in the coming months. Exhibitors who wish to sign up to be notified about early bird registration can sign up to receive updates in the exhibitors section on the Forest City ComiCon website. Fans can sign up to receive general updates about the show by e-mail on the homepage at www.forestcitycomicon.ca
