The World Cosplay Summit is an event that creates a new form of international and cultural exchange where cosplayers who love Japanese pop culture such as anime, manga, and video games gather from all over the world. The convention will include events such as the World Cosplay Championship 2023, a competition to determine the world's No. 1 cosplayer, as well as live concerts, performances, a runway, and more.

Brother will be presenting the ScanNCut DX cutting machine as the Brother Prize in the costume making category of the World Cosplay Championship. In addition, Brother will have a booth at the main venue, Oasis 21, where it will demonstrate crafting for cosplayers using Brother products such as embroidery machines and cutting machines, as well as display cosplayers' works created using Brother products.

On August 2, prior to the World Cosplay Summit, the representative teams from each country that will participate in the World Cosplay Championship will visit the Brother Museum, the exhibition hall for Brother products. The representative teams will be introduced to the latest products, including embroidery machines, garment printers, and ScanNCut, and will be able to experience the joy of creating pieces with Brother products.

Brother will continue to provide products and services that help customers who enjoy crafting express their creativity, primarily in the area of sewing.
