Royal Exhibition Buildings, Melbourne Confirmed New Dates 30 + 31 January 2021

Following our recent updates, taking into consideration the current COVID-19 situation and with consultation with our partners, we’ve made the decision to move Cospendium to Saturday 30 + Sunday 31 January, 2021. We’re thrilled to be kicking off the New Year with Cospendium!

For those of you who have a ticket to Cospendium – great news as you don’t need to do anything. Your current ticket is valid for the rescheduled event.  If you have questions or queries please contact us on
Ticketing enquiries can also be made at

We are overjoyed to announce that both William Shatner and Mel Gibson will be joining Cospendium on the new dates! We’re so excited they can both still be part of this inaugural event.

We acknowledge the efforts of Governments, heroic health workers, emergency services, manufacturers and supermarket staff during this period. We also want to recognise and ‘big up’ the artists, creatives, and small businesses who have had to pivot and adapt in these unprecedented times. At Cospendium, we are no different and see this as an opportunity to grow.

Cospendium will rise from this and on 30 + 31 January 2021, the Royal Exhibition Building will become the capital for cosplay, gaming, community and families to unite!

Thank you for your ongoing support. Stay safe and positive during these tough times. Together we will get through this extraordinary time.
