About


Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin flanked by the 501st Legion at Northern FanCon 2018

5 years ago, I started the entertainment expo Northern FanCon with our local newspaper The Citizen in Prince George BC, Canada.  Our plan was to create a meaningful all inclusive event that was unlike anything our city had ever seen. We succeeded.

  Since it’s inaugural year, this annual event has seen nearly 60,000 attendees and attracted guests like William Shatner, Karl, Urban, Alan Tudyk, Amy Acker, Levar Burton, Kevin Smith, Tricia Helfer, Edward James Olmos, Jason Mewes, LeeAnna Vamp, Ivy Doomkitty, AniMia, Lindsay Elyse, Jewel Staite, Tia Carrere, Alicia Witt, Giancarlo Esposito, Isaiah Mustafa, Brett Dalton, Michael Hogan, John De Lancie, Jewel Staite, Sean Astin, Nichelle Nichols, , Michael Biehn, Tricia Helfer, and many others. 

The event has generated millions of dollars for the local economy and is now part of the cultural fabric of our city and the region.  

After having supported the event for 5 years,  The Citizen is ready for someone else to take on the financial responsibility of the event. This is where you come in.  

My company UNLTD Media and Events and the venue CN Centre are committed to doing whatever we can to make sure Northern FanCon continues. In order for that to happen, we need to guarantee advance ticket sales, booth, sales, and sponsorships. Having seen tremendous support for some great local projects on Kickstarter, we have chosen this platform to try to raise the funds we need to move forward with Northern FanCon 2020. To make it more enticing, tickets, booths and sponsorships are all either at a discounted rate, include extras or both.  

Every year since Northern FanCon began, we have done whatever it takes to make sure the event happens. This year is different only in us asking for your help in purchasing tickets in advance, purchasing your booths, and supporting the event earlier in the year. If this works, we can make Northern FanCon 2020 and all of the many special moments happen together for everyone.

A few moments through the years...

Risks and challenges

An immeasurable amount of blood, sweat and tears have gone into Northern FanCon through the years. We have honed a very carefully planned strategy to make sure that, provided we hit our target, we deliver the scale and quality of event you have grown accustomed to. If you can hel us get to that target, we will take care of everything else.
