The Summit Show April 20/21 in Edmonton
So I'm thinking of driving up from Calgary on the Saturday for this show, just wanted to know if it's worth it. I went to the inaugural show a few years back when it was held accross from Rexall and it was terrible. Very few vendors and lots of empty space. Luckily I was up there already for a concert so it wasn't a waste of a drive. Does anyone know if it's gotten better over the last few years?

I couldn't make it last year and can't say if this year is expected to be better. Ideally, you should contact the show organizers to ask about the number of confirmed tables/dealers and how that compares to last year. To do that, here's their website and you'll find contact info for the show organizers:
Here's some other info about the show off of the website and please note, I am NOT affiliated with the show at all so I'm not seeking to promote it, only assist with the hobby and answering your question:

Ive gone every year. The first year near Rexall was awful. It's gotten better since it moved to Sherwood Park, but it's still only about 1/2 card tables, and 1/2 things like memorabilia, pictures, stuff like that. It's not a full day event at all IMO, and this year they've announced that they'll be welcoming people that collect things like stamps, coins, etc. Which is cool, but its not my thing.
If the autograph guests interest you, or you're bored, make the drive. But don't expect something like the old Bossa shows or anything.
How come they don't come to Alberta anymore?

Our Bossa Big Show is 1 week later! Its the best show of the year by far in Vancouver. The other 2 day show sounds a lot like yours, half hockey cards while the other half is misc stuff like comics / memorabilia / coins / etc
I cant wait!
