“Ottawa Geek Market is Ottawa’s coup de grâce. I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of being an exhibitor on more than three occasions and the experience is always a good one – amazing volunteers, superior organization, awesome location and an excellent array of vendor tables. OGM is one of my favourite events to present my Crimson series of fantasy novels.”

“As a vendor in my second year , and as a customer who has attended from the beginning, it amazes me how fresh and new each event seems. The organizers and staff keep finding ways to make each one better than the last. Keep up the great work!”
