The opening of the convention year is imminent. The first MAG-C, which will be more colorful than ever, will start with a new look next weekend from February 4th to 5th.

With over 80 exhibitors and artists as well as well-known influencers, Messe Erfurt is turning into a mecca for cosplayers, gamers and fans of Japanese pop culture. The Community Convention brings together diverse characters and quick-change artists who pursue their hobby with a lot of passion and bring Japanese style to the fair, as well as gamers who can compete against each other in various tournaments. Visitors can immerse themselves in various themed worlds from speedrun, retro and e-sports to cosplay, Japan and artists.

Cosplay contest for the most beautiful costumes

On Saturday morning, the moderators Freiraumreh and SaKiDe welcome the community on the main stage. Dennsen then engages in an exciting battle against time with his guests. The official opening at 13 p.m. will be taken over by the guest of honor Bodo Ramelow, Prime Minister of the Free State of Thuringia. In a conversation with Freiraumreh, he then gives an outlook on the digital society and his own experiences with gaming. "We are very pleased that he insists on opening the MAG-C on Saturday," says Michael Kynast, Managing Director of Messe Erfurt.

In the Cosplay Contest with SaKiDe, the most beautiful costumes are presented and awarded by a selected jury. In addition, visitors can discover a gallery of various cosplay costumes and use the repair station for minor corrections to cosplay outfits.
