Frequently Asked Questions
When do tickets go on sale?
Tickets will go on sale later in the year for our 2019 event. Dates will be announced shortly. Please be sure to join our newsletter mailing list at the bottom of the page for announcements and updates.
Do I have to register for every event ahead of time, or will there be tickets available during the conference?
Some events will require pre-registration, which will be available until tickets to those events are sold out. There will be tickets to non-sold-out events available for purchase during the convention. Events requiring pre-registration or extra costs will be noted under their descriptions.
How do I find things in the convention?
During the convention you can pick up our Official Program Guide. This handy guide has maps, guests and more! Our Info Booths are also a great way to ask questions and you can also find a volunteer to help guide your way.
Where do I find out if my favourite artist, writer, actor, etc. is signing autographs?
You can find autograph information for comic and special guests at their booths or on our website. We will be adding information to bios when they are confirmed. Autograph times will be posted at the convention by the autograph area.
