After a six-year hiatus, Oz Comic-Con finally made its triumphant return to Perth in 2023. With thousands of die-hard fans, gamers, and cosplayers flocking to the Convention and Exhibition Centre on April 1-2, the event was celebrating all things pop culture, gaming, and esports and AEL was ecstatic to be a part of this highly anticipated event.
The AEL gaming zone was a hive of activity throughout the convention, providing a fantastic opportunity for cosplayers, gamers, and fans of all ages and backgrounds to come together and enjoy some friendly competition. The AEL booth held several tournaments over the two-day extravaganza, drawing in participants from all over the convention. Players faced off in a variety of games, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Mario Kart 8.
But the AEL booth wasn’t just about the tournaments – it also provided a great opportunity for attendees to come together and enjoy some gaming fun in the free play area.
One of the attendees, Aaron M, was thrilled with the Smash and Mario Kart setup at the AEL booth. He expressed his gratitude by saying, “Thank you for hosting these games. It gave me a little bit of nostalgia getting to play games that I used to love with all my heart again. The thrill of it was a memory of a lifetime that I will never forget.”
Overall, Oz Comic-Con’s return to Perth was a huge success and we cannot wait for next year’s event. With the support of our sponsors, Electrical Group Training, the Western Australia event partner.
