Abu Dhabi will host the 10th edition of the Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) event in March 2022.

It is the first time that the emirate will host the event, and it will be held across across three days at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

Organised by Informa and supported by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), it is expected to gather a host of international A-listers and its format will include VIP meet-and-greets, talks, interviews, and other event activations.

Previous editions of the convention have seen the likes of Jason Momoa, Zachary Levi, Benedict Wong, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Ezra Miller, Iwan Rheon, Tara Strong, Seth Green, Gillian Anderson and William Shatner in attendance. The star participants for the 2022 are expected to be announced soon.

“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,” said Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, executive director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi. “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.”

“We are absolutely delighted to be teaming up with Abu Dhabi and bringing MEFCC to the emirate for the very first time,” said Michael Lamprecht, convention Director from organisers Informa. “We are sure that the UAE capital will prove to be the perfect host and fans will be thrilled with the 2022 edition. MEFCC has proven to be popular with a wide range of audiences; those who love film and comics and those who enjoy the social side of events like this, and we promise that next year’s event will be bigger and better than ever before.”

Over the last decade, MEFCC offers a chance for pop culture enthusiast to meet local and international artists, and witness cosplay parades and entertainment acts from Anime bands to alternative rock groups.
Tickets for the event will go on sale later this year.
