More than 14,000 people attended the first Middle East Film and Comic Con in Dubai last month, its organisers have revealed.
The event, which took place over two days at the Dubai International Marine Club, was well received by attendees, exhibitors, and organiser ExtraCake. The firm said it was delighted at the response.
"We knew that there was interest, and we were hoping to get off to a good start from an attendance point of view, but we were delighted by the number of people who flooded the venue," said Ben Caddy, managing director of ExtraCake.
"The feedback we've had was fantastic, and it was great to see visitors of every nationality, age, and gender all together enjoying the same experience," he added.
