2020 Toronto Fall Expo Cancelled, Virtual Expo Expands
There will be no Toronto Fall Sport Card and Memorabilia Expo in November. The show was cancelled as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and crowd sizes remain limited in Ontario.
However, in its place there will be another Virtual Sports Card Expo slated for November 21 and 22. After a debut run in place of the Spring Expo last June, the event returns allowing collectors from around the world to attend. This time, it’ll be co-produced by Steve Menzie, the Toronto Expo owner and Mitch Adelstein who runs the Chicago Sports Spectacular, another major show that won’t take place in November due to the pandemic.
Through the online setting, collectors will be able to buy and sell at dealer booths as well as watch and participate in breaks. Dealers can connect with collectors directly through private video chats. There will also be special sessions with athletes and celebrities giving talks, sharing stories and answering questions.
According to Virtual Expo stats, over 4,400 people took part, logging more than 8,300 cumulative hours.
More info will be available at the Expos’s website.
