The World Cosplay Summit (WCS) event announced on Friday that it will have both physical and online events this year. The physical event will take place on August 7 and 8 at various locations centered around Oasis 21 in Nagoya.

Events will include cosplay events with photo shoots and stage events, as well as a video cosplay championship. The event's executive committee includes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Aichi Prefecture, Nagoya City, Nagoya Convention & Visitors Bureau, Osu Shopping District Alliance, Aichi Television Broadcasting, and WCS.

The event canceled its Championship and International Representative events last year due to the ongoing new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, and instead held a "Cosplay Summit Online Presentation."
