The World Cosplay Summit was established in 2003 and is a cultural exchange event where cosplayers from all over the world gather. Held each summer in Nagoya, the event initially participated only four countries and regions, but has now grown to more than 40.
Although it is an international event, the festival is known as "WCS / Cos-Summit" as it is rooted in Nagoya and Aichi, where it is held.
"WCS" will evolve into a new form from the influence of infection.
From Nagoya to Japan and the world.
"Nagoya will unite to boost regional and economic recovery in the era of With/After infection and send an message to the world under the keyword, "cosplay".
