Stan Lee visits Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo 2015!!
Edmonton, AB (September 27, 2015) – The Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo closed today after welcoming 50,000 guests for the 4th annual event. The event attracted stars and artist from around the world, hundreds of exhibitors and vendors, and some of the best comic artists the industry – all fueled by over 500 incredible local volunteers.
“We had guests here this weekend who had never been to a convention before, and made a point of telling us that they had a fantastic experience in Edmonton and now want to do more, come back, meet more people! Edmonton will be the benchmark. Our team works really hard, but without the fans showing up to bring this to life we would never get that kind of feedback,” said Expo host & spokesperson, Emily Expo. “It’s difficult to pick a highlight, but I don’t think anyone will ever forget Stan Lee yelling ‘Excelsior’ on Edmonton soil or hearing Billy Boyd sing “The Last Goodbye” during a concert with his incredible band, Beecake. It was a special year, and we are already working on year five!”
