TORONTO, March 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada's favourite and largest fan
convention, Fan Expo Canada™, is expanding by adding a new genre to the show: Fan Expo Sports™ - The Ultimate Sports Celebrity Experience. The only convention of its kind to marry the worlds of pop culture
with sports, the 2013 return of Fan Expo will see over 100,000
entertainment and sports fans unite at the Metro Toronto Convention
Centre to get a glimpse of their favourite celebrities.
"Sports are as much a part of pop culture as comics or science fiction,"
says Steve Menzie, President of Hobby Star Marketing Inc. "There are
many similarities in the celebrity experience, with everything from
sports collectibles to equally devoted fans. We are creating an event
that unites fans of entertainment — whether sporting or cultural. It's
a natural fit and will offer a winning combination for all Fan Expo
With a mission to provide the "ultimate sports celebrity experience," Fan Expo Sports™ goes above and beyond traditional sports shows that focus solely on

favourite sports celebrities, including Canadian hockey legends Martin Brodeur, Joe Sakic, Gordie Howe and Bobby Orr (in a rare public appearance); Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Joe Montana; wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in his first Canadian appearance; Canadian horse racing champion, Ron Turcotte (Secretariat's jockey) and many more!
