MEFCC 2017: The Region’s Biggest Pop Culture Festival is Back

The Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC) 2017 is returning for its sixth edition at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from April 6 to 8; the event is promising an even bigger show than last year featuring more celebrities, international comics and animation artists and cosplayers who are scheduled to be present over the 3 days. Visitors will have access to events related to virtually all genres, from superhero and fantasy to horror and crime; they will be able to meet their favorite authors and artists, as well as actors and directors.

Where else can Pop Culture Fanatics meet up with celebrity performers from films, television, video games, and comics all in one setting?

MEFCC 2017 will showcase some of the world’s biggest brands in Film, TV, Sci-Fi, Animation, Manga, Comics, Collectibles and more. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet local bands, performers and artists as well as to purchase exclusive merchandise, take part in activities and win prizes at dress-up and make-up contests (best dressed or look as anime characters).

Why come? This massive pop culture event is growing by leaps and bounds every year! Again, MEFCC has a spectacular showcase of an eclectic collection of celebrity guests, a variety of the best regional and international comics and animation artists, with top pop culture exhibitors, thrilling activities, like the Splash Cosplay Competition and the Dodgeball Cup.

The Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) is the only consumer event for fans of cult entertainment & popular culture in the region. It also provides a platform for comic book creators, editors, and publishers to reach their target audience and connect with fans.

Attendees can meet their stars (be part of a photo session), ask for their autograph (in a signing session), and get some exclusive hands-on secrets on bringing a movie idea to life, creating the perfect cosplay characters in a comic book and all the tips and tricks for capturing an audience by participating to available workshops. MEFCC is the place to learn from the industry experts and masters of their trade.

MEFCC, therefore, is both an incredible marketing PR tool and a revenue generator that banks on the idea to create an entertainment trade show that brings brands to life in a sector that is growing in fan base.
