Lagos Comic Convention

 

The annual Lagos Comic Convention aka "Lagos Comic-Con" which began in 2012 is a non-profit convention which serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas and business opportunities in a sector that is dominantly youthful and urban. It is an event that brings together stakeholders in the comics, animation, gaming and film industry.

The role of the Lagos Comic-Con since its inception in 2012 has been to celebrate successes of practitioners in the Creative Industry, encourage broader participation and support the building of knowledge and capacity necessary to strengthen the sector and ultimately create jobs. This has involved working with creative professionals, policy makers, stakeholders and other industry experts to help facilitate wider understanding and awareness of the issues and opportunities available.

It has grown in attendance from 300 participants in 2012 to 4,000 in 2016, with attendance predominantly youth between the ages of 15-35 years old. The latest edition in September 2016 had over 3000 attendees, 46 exhibitors, 11 speakers, and 7 premiered films.
