SPECIAL GUESTS

Guest appearance dates and pricing are added to the Guest page as they are received. If the appearance dates or other details are not listed we do not yet have this information available and will be unable to provide it. Please check back often for updates.

Every year a small percentage of our guests cannot join us as planned. The reasons are endless and, in some cases, leave little time to change schedules and advertising. 

If a guest cancels, we will give as much notice as possible. Also, not all guests attend for the entire event. If you are only visiting for a few hours, you may miss some of your favourite guests. Please join us for the whole weekend so you don’t miss out!

Please note: Guest appearances are subject to cancellation or schedule change due to professional and extenuating circumstances at any time. Admission is not refundable due to guest cancellation.

APPS

No, there is no app for this event. Please check social media and our website for the schedule and updates. Expo tip: Take a screenshot in case you have limited service in the exhibit hall!

PHOTO OPS

Photo Ops will be released throughout the year. You may purchase in advance from our website or purchase them from Epic Photo Ops at the show, if still available. 

Photo Op prices are added to the Guest page as they are received. If the price or other details are not listed we do not yet have this information available for release and will be unable to provide it. Please check back for updates.

Our Photo Ops company sets this limit and has the final word on the number of people that can pose together in one Photo Op. They typically allow up to three (3) individuals. The celebrities are not counted into this number.

When you enter the Photo Op booth, please have your Photo Op ticket in hand and ready to present. Have any backpacks, purses, jackets, etc. off and ready to place on the table provided inside. You will be no more than a few steps from your items. Your photo will be taken and you’ll be asked to leave the booth.

Please note that a Photo Op is not a meet and greet but a rapidly moving process. It is important that you listen for prompts from the line attendants and the photographer to ensure you get the best photo possible.

Expo Admission is required to redeem your Photo Op. If you are planning on purchasing a Photo Op, please make sure that you also purchase the necessary expo ticket. Information about our tickets can be found on our Tickets page.

ACCESSABILITY

Guide dogs and service animals are welcome at our shows, provided they are leashed or under similar control as appropriate.

We ask attendees to carry acceptable documentation and/or that service animals are properly marked (for example by wearing a vest or harness). Attendees with service animals on-site at the event assume complete responsibility for their animal for the duration of their time at the event.
