You will have one of the best times of your life there. What do you say?

The Anime-Con event in Argentina is pretty new to this area; it had only two previous events there before this year. However, even though it only began in 2022, it has quickly changed the media and become one of those must-see mega-events if you can. The event this year will take place at the Centro Costa Salguero in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is a large space on the coast of the Río de la Plata, close to other famous places in Palermo, like the Japanese Garden, the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, the Embassy of the United States, and the National Museum of Fine Arts.
