Fan Expo 2010 - Letter from the President

Sorry to pull the focus away from the Marvel 1980s, but I need to vent about the Fan Expo 2010. This year's show has been harshly and justly criticized by the media, fans, and myself. The President of Fan Expo put out the following letter of apology:

After reading this letter, the only thing I can do is shake my head. How can they claim they were unfamiliar with the North Building when the convention was originally held there for many years before moving to the South Building in recent years? Not to mention the Fan Appreciation Shows through the year that are also run out of the North Building. Sadly, this excuse is a blatant insult to their fans.

There's no mention of compensating fans, such as allowing them free access to those Fan Appreciation Shows or their other Comic Expos during the year. Sad and disappointing, but that's what you should expect when dealing with Fan Expo Toronto.

If only WizardWorld Toronto could step up next year. It could provide fans with a viable alternative and grab hold of that market.
