ALIAS Entertainment Expo (AEX) is a multi-genre pop culture convention. The expo focuses on Comics, Cosplay, Gaming, Anime, Sci-fi, Movies alongside Water sports and pool activities etc. It is the only convention of its kind in the Caribbean region! It is held annually at the Centre of Excellence in Trinidad and Tobago at the end of July! In 2019 however we have temporarily changed our dates to the 23-25th of August!

Every year we try to have ticket outlets in the North, Central and South of Trinidad. As soon as outlets are finalised we will update the Tickets section of our website and announce on our FB page. So make sure you are subscribed to our posts to be up to date on all our announcements or call 303 7318 or 781 4230!

We offer this service so people can give us the information necessary to put on your personalised VVIP tickets and also for our hardcore fans to be able to secure their tickets before they go on sale to the public.

Ticket pre-ordering is simple! Once we have re-launched and they are in stock, simply go to our Tickets Tab and input your information. Make sure to put in your real name when prompted to input your billing information and that this name matches your ID for collection. You will then be given the option to download your invoice at checkout. Please download and print your invoice!

If you pay by February 28th, you will be able to collect your personal Avatars by April. Those who fail to pay for their passes will be blacklisted for future VVIP ticket purchases, so please only sign up if you have intentions of paying for it. Any remaining unpaid passes will then go on sale to the general public and prices will increase as time goes on.

ONLY the first 100 who preorder will get an actual Avatar as pictured. Anyone else will still get VVIP entry but will just have missed out on the awesome memorabilia.

Nope! Cosplay as whatever character you want or don’t cosplay at all. The choice is yours! If you do cosplay just be sure to adhere to our General Costume Rules.

Please see our position on weapons in our Convention Policy Section 12

 

Unfortunately we cannot refund or replace lost or stolen tickets. Once your ticket has been bought and given to you, it is at your risk. VVIP pass holders MAY be able to enter the convention if they lose their passes, since we will have your information on hand, however since we cannot constantly check our databases at every entry point (workshops,ball,afterparty) We cannot guarantee entry at these points. Long story short, do not lose your passes or tickets or you’re gonna have a bad time.

Please email josette@alias-expo.com with your company bio, website/fbpage and any other relevant information  with your request. You will be notified of your acceptance or rejection by email closer to the date of the convention.  Please note however that our Press passes do not allow you access to our Nightlife attractions.

Please read our Convention Policy sections 6 and 7. We reserve the right to revoke or suspend passes to the event and in some cases ban individuals from all our future events. Moral of the story here is, play nice! E.g Deadpool cosplayers please remember that you aren’t really Deadpool.

Anyone is free to attend the convention, we welcome fans of all ages! ALIAS Entertainment Expo is a family friendly event. However access to our After Party is strictly 18 years and over since there will be alcohol at the venue. Everything else is open to anyone of any age!

Volunteers help us manage the convention on the days of the event. We have volunteer training sessions and prep meetings prior to, in order to prepare them to deal with our patrons effectively. We welcome anyone 18 years and over with exceptional organisational and people skills to apply. It is hard work though so please do not apply if you expect to enjoy the convention as a patron, you will be working from sun up to sun down. We have had negative experiences with volunteers leaving their duties early and expecting to simply attend the convention for free. This will not be accepted. So only apply if you are willing to work hard, it is an excellent addition to any CV!

Please visit our Participate Tab to find out more and read our Volunteer Code of Conduct before applying!
