C2E2, otherwise known as the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, is one of the United States’ most anticipated events each year. The show itself takes place at Chicago’s McCormick Place and brings the best of popular culture to Downtown Chicago. C2E2 provides the perfect hybrid of fiction and reality. The show floor is where the world of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga, and video games collide. From a show floor packed with hundreds of exhibitors, to panels and autograph sessions giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite creators, to screening rooms featuring sneak peeks at films and television shows months before they hit either the big or small screen, C2E2 has something for everyone. The event takes place in late April, giving all attendees time to prepare their best Hero or Villain costume.
The C2E2 show Floor also plays host to The Block, an area designed to bring together the art, design, collectible toys, pop-tech and fashion of the Downtown Chicago pop culture scene. Don’t miss the tastemakers, trendsetters, artists, thinkers, and the brand that they create hanging out in The Block.
