The expo is taking place at International Trade Centre at REAL District on September 28 & 29, 2024. The halls will be open SAT: 10AM-6PM, SUN: 10AM-5PM.
In light of the ongoing circumstances regarding the Coronavirus, we have decided to postpone Sask Expo Regina from our original dates of May 2-3, 2020. We will be moving the Expo to another weekend in 2020, with those dates to be announced. All tickets will be honoured for the new convention dates.
As of March 13th, 2020, the Minister of Health has ordered no public events of more than 250 people to take place in Saskatchewan, as well as no events with speakers or attendees who have travelled internationally within the last 14 days.
As of March 16th, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made sweeping flight restrictions for people entering Canada.
As well, the Screen Actor’s Guild is strongly discouraging any non-essential travel by its’ members.
Today’s decision and announcement is being made with the motive of keeping everyone safe. First and foremost, we all need to do whatever we can to protect one another. Our Expo community has always been one of inclusion, caring and safety, and that is more important now than ever. We are taking our instruction from the appropriate agencies regarding the safety of our community.
This was not an easy decision to make in any way, and one we did not come to lightly. The Regina Expo is not run by a corporation, it is Chris and I, along with dedicated volunteers, who make this show happen. We are fans first, and are as heartbroken as anyone that the Expo won’t be happening as originally planned.
We know this effects everyone involved; attendees, vendors, artists, volunteers…the entire fan community.
We are currently working on an online version of the convention, happening on the original show dates. We will be featuring our vendors and artists, so that you will have the opportunity to support them in that way, as well as some fun contests, etc. We want to retain as much of a sense of community that weekend as possible, so keep an eye out for more details.
We hope you are all safe. Please take care of each other, and be kind. These are difficult times. How we treat each other right now is incredibly important.
There are better days ahead, and still an Expo to look forward to, just a bit further away! We will weather this together.
Mike & Chris
Typically we start announcements for the Expo a few months before the event but if there is absolutely something we just can’t keep a secret, well you will know sooner than later! We are as big of fans of all of this as you are!
Online ticket sales will open in the spring of 2024.
Tickets will be available at the door, with a $5-10 increase per ticket, depending on the ticket type, and we cannot guarantee admission if the venue reaches capacity.
Absolutely! Families are more than welcome at Regina Expo. In fact, children aged 10 and under are FREE as long as they are accompanied by an adult (18+), maximum two children per adult. Children 16 and under can be included in our Family Passes as well.
Not at all. Cosplay is a fun, creative part of our convention that many people take part in, but in no way is it necessary in order to come and experience everything that the Expo has to offer.
It’s important to have cash at the convention, as autograph sales are cash, there is not debit at Admissions, and many vendors do not have credit or debit. It’s a good idea to bring cash with you, but we always have ATMs on-site as well.
They are not. Autograph and photo op fees are separate.
The autograph prices are set by each individual guest, and are not posted ahead of time.
You sure can. You can have up to four people in a photo, yourself included.
The photo op time slots are strictly for photo ops only. Autographs are not permitted in the photo op area but you can get an autograph at your guest’s table during their designated autograph times.
So your favorite celeb is coming to the Expo and you want to leave him or her with a token of your undying love. It’s a fabulous gesture and kudos to you for your generosity! However, not all guests are able or willing to accept gifts, so please take a look at the points below before pouring 2000 man hours of work into that handmade Torchwood themed afghan that you want to give to John Barrowman.
All gifts must be approved by the agent or representative before being given to the guest. Food/consumable gifts are not allowed (this includes alcohol). Gifts that appear to be menacing or some kind of weaponry will not be allowed.
Keep in mind that many guests do not want to accept gifts as it can make getting home somewhat difficult – a giant razor sharp Freddy Krueger claw likely won’t go over well in customs, also, it’s bulky and tough to pack in a suitcase. So don’t be offended if a guest declines to accept the gift that you’ve so humbly presented to him or her. It isn’t a personal insult, it’s just a matter of practicality.
The Expo is a fantastic place to meet new friends, be part of an ever-growing community, and help geeks take over the world! You can find all the info about becoming a volunteer on the volunteer page.
