The 20th Barcelona Manga Fair, organized by FICOMIC, closes its doors this afternoon after receiving 130,000 visitors, a figure that marks a new milestone in its history. The event increased its floor space once again this year, going from last year's 35,000 square meters to this year's 50,000. Space is not the only thing to undergo an increase this time, but opening hours have also been extended, since doors have been open every day from nine o'clock in the morning, and not ten o'clock, as was usually the case.
The XX Barcelona Manga Fair will be held from Thursday, October 30 to Sunday, November 2 in Hall 1, Hall 2 and Plaza Universo at the Fira de Barcelona on Montjuïc.
The twentieth edition of the Barcelona Manga Fair will take over a record 50,000 m² of the Fira de Barcelona venue, 15,000 m² than last year’s 35,000 m². The event will cover the venue’s Hall 1, Hall 2 and Plaza Universo, where the stage will be located. Opening times will also be extended this year and the fair will open its doors to the public at 9:00 a.m. on all four days.
