VAN EXPO Presents: GEEKTOPIA 2019 – Journey to Somewhere
Every person has an unwritten adventure waiting to start, a fantasy that fuels their soul and a prophesy they must fulfil. As close as a midnight dream, a mystical realm exists where all your deepest desires come true. A place where magic and science are one in the same and the future is brought into the present.
Welcome to the world of Geektopia, a one-day event held in Vancouver, British Columbia that specializes in all genres of entertainment and fandoms. Whether you’re interested in Anime, Fantasy, Horror or Science fiction; this is the place where you belong. A community that accepts all, practices tolerance and celebrates diversity.
Geektopians have long practised the philosophy of philanthropy. In honour of this tradition, we will continue our fight to protect the innocent, speak for those who are silenced and help rebuild spirits.
The goal of Geektopia is to bridge the gaps between entertainment and education, and between science and fiction. We hope to create opportunities for fans to dive deeper into their cherished genres by holding seminars, panels, open gaming and cosplay events with prizes to stimulate their minds or to further their quest to be a part of the entertainment industry. From local artists to aspiring actors, from sci-fi geeks to fantasy freaks, there is a place for everyone.
