"Returning in September 2022 also makes it possible for Comic Con Africa to come back in the expected full force - with bigger numbers, more activations and international talent," says Carla Massmann, Comic Con Africa show director.
Comic Con Africa 2022 is also moving to the Johannesburg Expo Centre that can accommodate 80 000 visitors with the showcase that will again have a food truck village and a beer garden.
"We have many new editions like StreetCon, TechCon and many more areas that Comic Con Africa are excited to be introducing in 2022, and the Johannesburg Expo Centre allows for us to safely introduce these new and exciting editions," says Carla.
"The Expo Centre is easy to access via all highways and is a mere 20 minutes from central points like Fourways, opening the show up to so many more visitors. It also offers ample parking and easy access points, making arrival at the show more efficient and streamlined."
"We miss the fans and we look forward to welcoming them back in September 2022 to a safe environment," she says.
