About CalgaryExpo 2017

There is so much to see and do at the Calgary Expo – it’s hard to know where to start! We know that planning is essential in order to take in everything your nerdy little heart desires.

Location and Hotel

If you’re coming in from out of town, you can find information on the convention location and our official show hotels* on the LOCATION AND HOTELS page. Calgary Expo takes place at Stampede Park and the whole city gets in on the fun!

*The Calgary Expo, Edmonton Expo, and Saskatoon Expo work exclusively with GTA Meetings for hotel bookings. Any other booking company or agency claiming to book for our conventions is not affiliated with us. GTA Meetings will not call or solicit to sell hotel rooms.


Calgary Expo features over 160 hours of programming including panels with Expo guests, workshops with industry professionals, costume contests and more. The PROGRAMMING schedule is posted online in April before the show begins and is distributed via a program during the Expo.

Special Events

Special Events take place outside of the main convention and are separately ticketed events. In the past, Calgary Expo Special Events have included one-night-only cast reunions of iconic films or television series (Star Trek: The Next Generation in2012 and Aliens, 2014), concerts (Weird Al Yankovic), and Meet & Greet cocktail parties with Media Guests  (cast members from Torchwood, cast members from Game of Thrones). Take a look at what’s currently planned on the SPECIAL EVENTS page.

Show Floor

The Calgary Expo SHOW FLOOR map is updated each year and posted online in advance so you can get a lay of the land before arriving for the big show. You’ll also receive a program with a full map when you arrive at Calgary Expo for easy navigation.

Exclusive Merch

The Calgary Expo EXCLUSIVE MERCH store is the hottest place to be when the show doors open. Preview the store online before you arrive and shop early for best selection.

Artbook and Charity Auction

One of our favourite initiatives is the development of an annual collectors Artbook. Learn from about the ARTBOOK and CHARITY AUCTION and take part during Calgary Expo to support great causes and access incredible art.


From table-top to classic arcarde, you’ll want to bring your A-game with you to Calgary Expo’sGAMING area.
