Here we have gathered the answers to some of the most common questions we receive. We hope you find what you are looking for,
otherwise you are welcome to contact us.


We have organized Comic Con since 2014 and created unforgettable memories for tens of thousands of young and old fans in Malmö, Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Stockholm. 2023 was Comic Con’s tenth year since it premiered in 2014 (with a pandemic hiatus in 2020). We then also moved from Kistamässan to Stockholmsmässan and attracted over 44,000 happy visitors to the event.

2024 will be a maximum Comic Con year when you will be able to take part in two Comic Con in Stockholm – once in the winter and for the first time ever also in the summer! In May 2024, we will bring our new concept Made in Asia (which premiered in the summer of 2023 at Kistamässan) and include it in Comic Con Stockholm. So don’t miss Comic Con Summer + Made in Asia on 3-5 May 2024 at Kistamässan and Comic Con Winter 1-3 Nov 2024 at Stockholmsmässan.

We produce the Nordics’ largest event for popular culture!

With us you can experience activities inspired by TV & film, meet current actors, Comic Artists and digital creators. Also take part in world-class cosplay or play new games before everyone else. Comic Con is a magical experience for both young and old.

Yes, the bag ban applies at Comic Con Stockholm Summer on Nov 1-3. We want to be clear that this is not a decision we as organizers of Comic Con have made, but the decision to ban bags at major events in Sweden is a decision made by the Police Authority based on the increased terror threat level.

We understand that this may be inconvenient for you as visitors and are fully aware that many of you wish to carry bags with your cosplay costumes, personal belongings and the like, but we ask that you please follow these Police Authority guidelines for to ensure a safe and secure experience for all visitors.


  • The bag ban applies to all types of bags, no exceptions will be made depending on the size of the bag.
  • The ban also includes all types of bags.
  • The ban also applies if you have a bag belonging to a cosplay
    Wallets and smaller toiletry bags that fit in the pocket are not covered by the bag ban.


On the Police Authority’s website, you can read that certain exceptions to the bag ban apply, and these exceptions also apply:

  • Exceptions can be made for people with children who need a diaper bag.
  • Exceptions can also be made for people who need a bag due to medical reasons.
  • Exceptions will also be made for people who in some way work/collaborate with Comic Con, such as cosplay contestants, exhibitors, speakers, guests, journalists, etc.

We also want to draw your attention to the fact that the wardrobe cannot be used for bags you bring from outside, as the wardrobe is inside Kistamässan. The wardrobe can therefore be used for your jackets and things you bought at the event. Also keep in mind that you may not leave the building with a bag or bag you received at the event and then re-enter with it. If you want to go out and in, we recommend that you hang it in the wardrobe before you leave.

We will do everything to try to make it easier for your visitors so that you have as magical a weekend.
