East European Comic Con (EECC)

The event celebrates pop culture since 2013 in Bucharest, Romania and it is organized by Yuzu Events & Kick off Events.
EECC brings together all those who love Comic books, movies, TV series, Sci-Fi and fantasy, Gaming, Japanese culture, Anime, Manga, boardgames, trading card games and last but not least, technology. It is no secret that the famous San Diego Comic Con International was the main source of inspiration when we tailored our event. After many editions, East European Comic Con has became one of the most important events of its kind in Europe and the most important event in Eastern Europe.
Therefore, the main and official language of the event is English.

 

What we want?

EECC is the main place where Fantasy & Sci-Fi fans can meet their favorite actors, authors, artists, they can talk to them and have the opportunity to participate in special Photo Ops/Autographs sessions with them. Also, this convention is the meeting point for all the geeks.
More over, EECC offers to vendors and exhibitors the possibility to interact face to face with a valuable audience. In doing so, within the event days, EECC develops a marketplace with proper products for the Comic Con universe.


Reaching our main goal to become e one of the top European events, we're now aiming to reshape the marketing industry around a new generation with different set of values and hobbies. At the same time we focus to increase the number of tourists that visit Romania, as our event welcomes geeks and gamers from all over the world.
