How You Can Turn Comic Con Dubai Into the Ultimate Vacation

The perfect weekend getaway for geeks in Dubai and beyond...

Assemble your family and bring your league of friends, the Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC) is back for another epic run this March 5 - 7 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The pop culture convention is set to once again feature everything from celebrity meet and greets to insightful workshops, artist alleys, exclusive previews and trailers, geek shopping, and much, much more. The 2020 edition is already seeing a spectacular lineup of actors, cosplayers, and artists, including Disney Aladdin's Mena Massoud, the "man of steel" himself - Brandon Routh, and the Red Priestess Carice Van Houten from the international hit series Game of Thrones.

Whether you're a UAE resident or a visiting geek, Comic Con Dubai is the perfect time to let loose and indulge in your hobbies and interests. You can turn the three-day weekend into an epic staycation or vacation!

This year, MEFCC partnered with Rove Downtown, the best jump-off point for your weekend of gaming, cosplay, film, art, and pop culture, including urban exploration.

Located right across the city's most popular neighbourhood, Downtown Dubai, the hotel is a convenient short metro ride away from the Comic Con venue, a few minutes stroll to Burj Khalifa, and the world's largest shopping and leisure destination, The Dubai Mall.
