What is ComiXpo? ComiXpo (a.k.a. Comics Expo Australia) is a fan-to-fan retro based pop culture organisation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular entertainment, primarily through the presentation of toy fairs, conventions, and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.

When is ComiXpo? ComiXpo 4.0 will be held on Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday 7th November 2017 at the Matthew Flinders Hotel, Chadstone which has plenty of free car parking and is close to public transport. The event will open at 10am and run all day through to 5pm. Entry is only $5 per person with all cosplayers and children (twelve and under) admitted free.

Who is ComiXpo? ComiXpo is Australia’s most exciting destination for pop culture fans. Held twice each year, each ComiXpo boasts a show room packed with exhibitors, cosplay competitions, family fun, music, video, and much more. ComiXpo is a joint enterprise conceived by Brad Webb and Brendan Pearse. The event is run by Network Creative Services Pty Ltd with over forty years combined event management experience.

What are your hours? ComiXpo is open 10:00am to 5:00pm on event day.

What can I expect? ComiXpo has something for everyone. The main areas we feature at the event are various forms of gaming, comics, movie, television, animation, cosplay and costuming.

How do I buy tickets? You can purchase tickets online (with no booking fees) using PayPal or direct bank deposit or alternatively you can buy them at the door from 10:00am on the day of the event.

Does my child need a ticket? Unlike other comic-cons we do NOT charge children to attend our events. All children twelve (12) years and under are admitted free.

If I’m in costume do I have to pay to get in? No. All cosplayers get in for FREE at all our ComiXpo events. It’s our way of saying thanks for being part of the show!

Can I use my own camera at the event? Yes! Take as many photos as you like. Bear in mind if you are photographing children in cosplay you will need their parent’s permission.
