Nov. 4, 2010 - PRLog -- NEW YORK and WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Gareb Shamus, CEO of Wizard Entertainment, today announced the acquisition of the Central Canada Comic Con, of which the 2010 event was held this past weekend at the Winnipeg Convention Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  The dates for the 2011 Wizard World Central Canada Comic Con are October 28-29-30, 2011

“We have seen this hugely successful event and are proud to add Central Canada Comic Con as our newest Canadian show,” said Shamus.  “We look to continue its run of great events and celebrating pop-culture across Canada.”

“I am excited to be partnered with Wizard World as they will help bring the C4 Event to the next level for the fans,” said Damien Paille, President of Cencon Inc. and Show Manager of Central Canada Comic Con.  “They will benefit the community exponentially.”

Central Canada Comic Con is the second largest convention of its genre in Canada.  The show grew out of the Manitoba Collector's Expo, with everything from sports cards to antiques to toys and comic books.  In 2000 it became the Manitoba Toy & Comic Expo, dropping the antiques and reducing the sports cards.

In 2006, the show’s attendance exploded as the Manitoba Comic Con, and brought in attendees from all over Manitoba and North Dakota.  The show focused on toys, comic books, gaming, anime, and local artists.  In 2007, it added media guests from the world of Star Wars, Superman, Star Trek and more. Finally, in 2008, it moved to its current home at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.  Wizard World will continue all the customs and traditions that have made this show successful, while adding many of the elements that Wizard World fans have come to expect at our pop-culture festivals across North America!
