Event & Venue Management Students Capture Comiccon

Posted on March 24th, 2015 - Written by: Trebas Toronto

Current Event and Venue Management students Antonette Gunn, Jennifer Bonar, and Jennifer Smith volunteered during their March break at Comiccon Toronto – March 20-22.


All three students had a role assisting with registration, greeting, crowd control, customer service, answering questions about the event from excited fans, and anything else asked by the organizers.

Located in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Comiccon always hosts unique exhibitors, presentations, workshops and celebrity guests, and over 150,000 people attend over the three-day period.


“What a great experience,” was the general consensus from all three students. Jennifer B noted, “I have always heard about these events in the past. By the end of Saturday, I was completely swept up in the energy and excitement of it all.”

Antonette stated similar feelings, “What an incredible event, and we got to be part of it all – such amazing costumes, I wish I could have dressed up as well!”

“I think overall the event was very well-done. I have never seen so many kids dressed up. At one time I think I saw at least 20 little girls dressed like Elsa (the princess from Frozen). It was great to see everyone having such a great experience,” commented Jennifer S.

“Can’t wait for next time to do it all over again. The lack of sleep was worth it!”
