(Seoul Comic Con - 2021/06/15) The Seoul Comic Con Organizing Committee announced the holding of the Comic Con Conference at COEX in Samseong-dong, Seoul for two days, from August, 19-20th.

Under the theme “Metaverse is coming”, the Comic Con conference sessions will analyse the convergence of core technologies and contents in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. As the Metaverse implies a virtual 3D-world, the Comic Con conference is expected to be a place to present new business models and innovative visions for the future of the cultural content industry.

The first day of the conference program, August, 19th, will welcome conference sessions under the topic “Infinite Universe”. Leaders from all over the world will gather in one place to explore and talk about the prospects and innovative trends in the cultural content industry, directly resulting from the Metaverse era.

Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski will greet Korean fans online during the opening ceremony of the Comic Con conference. He will take the opportunity to talk about the future development of Korean characters and content in the MARVEL UNIVERSE.

On the second day, August, 20th, the “Creative Universe” topic will share expertise and technology for cultural content industry officials. By discussing the expansion of technologies and contents resulting in the creation of a Metaverse between games, animation, characters, etc, solutions will be explored for the contribution to the development of global cultural content markets.

Being a global event, the conference program will be held simultaneously on- and offline. Experts from all over the world and from each cultural content industry (movies, dramas, animation, webtoons, games, OTT) will explore various trends and new models.

The Comic Con conference is a paid event. Further details will be provided soon on Seoul Comic Con’s official website.

According to a Seoul Comic Con Organizing Committee’s official, “The Comic Con conference is the opportunity to explore future content innovations and worldwide cultural industry trends with global pop culture leaders.”
