If you're a geek who enjoys comic books and gaming then you'll love this! From 21 to 22 November, go crazy at the IGN Convention as live video game music, arcade games, free workshops and so much more take over Mina Seyahi to entertain the Dubai gaming community.

Not only will you get the chance to meet up with other fans of your favourite comics but you'll be learning how to create animation and develop video games at the same time. Head down to Mina Seyahi Hall, Dubai International Book Club, for this two day event and witness everything from comics to gaming gear.

An Artist Alley will showcase the work of independent artists, game developers, film makers and authors while commercial entities will feature their gadgets on the exhibition floor. Kristian Nairn of Game of Thrones, best known as Hodor, will be there as well as Troy Baker who has voiced characters from best-selling video games such as Batman, The Last of Us and Final Fantasy XIII. And if you need any more convincing, the well-known female cosplayer Riddle will also be attending the event.

Even if you don't know what's happening in the world of comic books and TV shows, you can still enjoy other events like eSports, a kid's zone and the regional artist showcase, so bring the whole family along. Cosplay addicts can mingle with other fans to discuss movies while gamers exercise their thumbs and reflexes and have an incredible time at this geek paradise!
