About us

Learn about us


We started with a simple idea…an event that was fun, fresh and served up new experiences for the growing geek community-and we’ve been doing it ever since.

First held in 2012 and based in the Toronto area, Unplugged Expo is an event for like minded individuals to meet, discover and live out their inner geek. For attendees, we strive to keep the sense of wonder and excitement alive from the moment you walk through the doors.

Unplugged has been called many things…a cosplay convention, a nostalgia con, a mixed bag. We prefer to think we’re just DIFFERENT.

What started as a brainstorming session of common interests has turned into so much more over the past 5 years. After each show, we are encouraged and delighted to hear about all the positive experiences

Our Mission


A safe fun environment to indulge your inner geek.


The best entertainment and programming that we can provide.


We will do our very best to ensure that both our vendors and attendees leave the show with a smile on their faces.
