There isn’t a more exciting event for those interesting in pop culture than Comic-Con weekends that take place around Europe. Fanatics for all things sci-fi and cosplay look to attend as many events as possible throughout the year, which often means traveling to find the best possible weekend suitable to your tastes.

There aren’t many more popular destinations for tourists in Europe than Amsterdam. Most visitors are quick to visit Anne Frank’s house and wander around the city, which is steeped in history and beautiful sights.

It will take place at RAI Amsterdam in 2021, and the event promises to enthrall all visitors. There will be a number of fun activities that you will be able to get involved with, including panels with special guests and photo opportunities. As well as that, there will be retro games available to play and prizes for the best dressed. Fans will be able to see memorabilia at this convention that they won’t be able to find anywhere else.
England hosts a number of exciting Comic Cons throughout the year, but not many are as popular as the one that takes place in Birmingham.

Organizers have promised an event unlike any other in 2021 after last year was forced to be canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It will be slightly different from past events due to safety measures in place, but you can learn more about Birmingham Comic Con at WeLoveBrum.co.uk.
Internationale Spieltage SPIEL
Very few nations are engrossed by video games more than Germany, which makes it the ideal location to have a convention specifically targeted towards lovers of games. The 2021 Internationale Spieltage will take place in October, between the 14th and 17th, with visitors able to play a host of retro games throughout the four-day festival. Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the much-loved event, which is also an ideal place to make new friends from around the world.
It is an important weekend for game developers, as this will be their opportunity to showcase their title to an adoring audience. As well as games, visitors can also enjoy a number of other novelties that can’t be found elsewhere. One of the reasons why this event stands out from the crown is because there is nothing else like it. This year’s event will be taking place in Essen, Germany.
