Supanova Expo Pty Ltd runs a series of fan conventions named Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, held annually across Australia in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast since 2002.

The events showcase a broad spectrum of pop culture interests including science fiction, fantasy, film and TV, comics, anime, gaming and collectables. The events are well-known for attracting both local and international talent (known as ‘Supa-Stars’), who entertain audiences with Q&A panels, sign autographs and offer photograph opportunities.

In 2019, Supanova presented one of their biggest line-ups of international star talent yet, featuring the likes of John Travolta and Billy Zane, who provided intimate and engaging insight into their Hollywood lives to fan-filled auditoriums in Brisbane and Adelaide.

Aside from the international elements Supanova provides a platform for local creators of film, TV, comics, literature, animation and gaming to create new imaginary worlds for excited fans to immerse themselves in. Between the main Exhibition floor and “The Alley” spaces are made available to suit all manner of budgets.

Another key attraction is Cosplay, “costume role-play”, where attendees can express themselves by transforming into their favourite characters, with the option to participate in competitive events from the ‘Cosplay Dash’ for new cosplayers to their premiere national competition, ‘The Supanova Cosplay Odyssey’ where the grand prize is a trip for two to Dragon Con in Atlanta, USA.

Supanova is an Australian-made and owned, independent event founded by Managing Director, Daniel Zachariou. He produces the event, along with a team of event professionals and volunteers, and in 2020 they’re projected to attract upwards of 180,000 visitors to enjoy the variety of fandoms being celebrated.
