Salón del Manga de Barcelona

Trade fair/Congress

The XXIV Salón del Manga de Barcelona of FICOMIC will be held at the Fira Barcelona Montjuïc site and will have, in this edition of 2018, 75,000 square meters. In addition to the exhibitors that show their products or services in the stands of Fira Barcelona, ​​in the Salón del Manga there are many activities organized: exhibitions, conferences, signatures of outstanding manga authors and workshops.

More participatory activities

This year they offer us more participatory activities than ever to get more interaction from the attendees; the idea is that the event is something more than the great festival of Japanese culture, but without losing focus on the country of the rising sun, because there will be more manga and Japanese culture than in previous editions.

New spaces: Japan Experience and Manga Kids

Japan Experience wants to offer activities that reflect the passion for everything that comes to us from Japan. A place where traditional and modern culture coexist perfectly. This year, sports will have a prominent presence because of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics: there is a close relationship between manga, anime and sport that will be reflected in the organization of sports activities. For the youngest of the family, this year Manga Kids has been created, a playful space where you can learn drawing techniques, script and design, play, read and create mangas, among other activities.

The scenario of the Plaza Univers

In this space will take place Cosplay contests (with the Spanish finals of the World Cosplay Summit, Clara Cow's Cosplay Cup and the European Cosplay Gathering), the Cosplay for children and youth, the concerts and the exhibitions related to Japanese culture. In addition, in this year's edition new specialized competitions will be presented: the Idol Contest and the K-Pop, both with great prizes. The Plaza Univers is the place where you can find food trucks.

The Japanese Gastronomy

Another change in this edition is the Japanese gastronomy space. In the mornings you can attend free Japanese cooking classes and in the afternoon you can watch show cooking.
