Geeks are in for a treat when the IGN Convention lands in Dubai next month. The two day event, which is expected to be inundated by thousands of fans wanting to check out the latest from the world of video games, movies and art, will be held at the Meydan IMAX on the 5th and 6th of July 2013.

The Meydan IMAX has the biggest cinema screen in all of Asia, which will be used to entertain fans with previews and trailers. Fan favourite Sci-Fi and Super Hero movies will be screened and fans will also get to interact with local UAE directors and artists in Q&A sessions.

The IGN convention will also host workshops on creating manga and animations, developing video games and movie making, while The Artist Alley will promote local artists and developers who will create and sell directly to their audiences.

"We're essentially creating a paradise for video games, film and comic book aficionados. The IGN Convention is a big festival with local and international celebrities, heaps of amazing content, and activities for the entire family. Film buffs will rub shoulders with cosplay enthusiasts as geeks discuss movies and gamers take part in a giant video game tournament. It is quite simply the biggest and best event of its kind in Dubai," said Abbas Jaffar Ali, Director, IGN Middle East.
