These last 2.5 weeks have been extremely challenging for the Fanboy Expo crew and for me personally. The current state of affairs has some people scared to attend public events while others are gung-ho to get out and experience everything they can. We have done our very best to navigate through this unknown territory as new daily challenges continue to hinder our efforts.

After having to postpone the Indianapolis show last week, I’ve had to take a hard look at the next 2
shows and where we sit as an organization to bring you the quality that you pay for when you buy a

Knoxville October 29-31- Knoxville is our flagship show and our longest running show. We have a large number of local staff, volunteers and local partners to help orchestrate the weekend beautifully. In addition, the dedicated hotel staff and the A+ team at the Knoxville Convention Center are brilliant at helping to navigate not only the convention weekend but also the trends, moods and changes in the area. That’s all to say the Fanboy Expo Knoxville convention is looking to be one of our best yet as we take over the entire convention center this Halloween weekend.

Columbus Nov 5-7- Columbus is a brand new city for us. Due to the current conditions many of
our staff and loyal volunteers are unable to travel. With your help we hope in the future to build
an amazing volunteer base making it a fun filled event for the areas fandom community. 
As you have probably noticed we have lost many guests because of concerns of the the new
variant of the coronavirus. Many guests that are currently working on projects also are not able
to attend due to restrictions based on travel or their returns not allowing them to immediately
return to work. Despite our best efforts, these obstacles have led us to postpone the Columbus
dates until late spring or summer of 2022. Everyone’s tickets will roll over to the new dates.

We sincerely apologize to all the fans in both Indianapolis and Columbus who were looking to spend the weekend with us. We had every intention on giving you the Fanboy Experience in 2021. We hope that you will make plans to be with us in 2022.

Knoxville! We look forward to bringing you the best Fanboy Expo Yet!
