It depends on what size is considered big.
Last years attendance was just shy of 18,000 single day admissions and the Winnipeg Convention Center provides well over 100,000 square feet of Con space.
We generally have 7-10 Celebrity Guests, plus another 20 or so celebrity Comic Artists and Creators(in addition to local artists).
Past celebrity Guests have included the likes of Dave Prowse, Adam West, Erica Durance and Lou Ferigno.
We have a lot of activities at the Con, from Costume Contests(last year we had over 500 people in costumes on Saturday), to Video Gaming, RPG's & Miniature Gaming, Workshops, Celebrity Q & A's, Preformances.
The dealer area will be roughly 200 tables in size, artists alley 100.
Very soon we'll be announcing the main guest list for this years Con. So far we've officially announced Ray Park plus a number of Comic Artists(Alex Milne, Dave McCaig, Marc Wolfe, Tommy Castillo, Marcio Takara, Norm Breyfogle).
We'll have a few more G.I.Joe'ish guests(comic and celebrity) to announce as yet as well.
. I currently know of two I can't yet spill the beans on, one a comic artist and the other being someone who was involved with the Original cartoon and toyline.
