The pop culture festival will feature an A-lister meet and greets, talks from entertainment icons, theatre, workshops, comic and anime art galleries, eSports expositions, and even cosplay parades

Talking about the announcement, HE Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi said: “We are thrilled to be bringing MEFCC to Abu Dhabi for the very first time, as it gives us the opportunity to bring the fans up close and personal to all their favourite pop culture properties”.

“The event will no doubt provide awesome excitement to the well-established and loyal fanbase, and will prove to be a great addition to Abu Dhabi’s ever-expanding line-up of exciting events for 2022. We regard it as a real honour for the emirate to become part of the Comic Con global family, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming Comic Con’s crowd to explore Abu Dhabi for the very first time.”
