From WikiGenius

Comic Con Arabia[1] (often abbreviated as CCA) is an annual pop culture convention held in Saudi Arabia, catering to enthusiasts of comics, movies, TV shows, anime, sci-fi, cosplay, video games, and various other forms of entertainment. The event serves as a platform for fans, creators, and industry professionals to come together, celebrate their shared passions, and engage in a wide range of activities.

It was held for the first time on November 23, 2017, in Riyadh, and it has brought high- profile guests. The convention later resumed virtually in 2020-2021, and continued its face-to-face engagement on October 20, 2022, at the Jeddah International Exhibition & Convention Center. The latest edition happened last November 30, 2023, at the same convention center.
