The First Comic-Con Asia is Happening in March 2018

Less than a month ago since AsiaPOP Comicon 2017 concluded in Pasay City, another great news for all things comics, gaming, cosplay, anime, TV and movie fans just came in the other day. The very first Comic Con Asia will be happening in the Philippines on March 24 and 25, 2018 at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

This announcement was made official at Alphaland, Makati Place on Sept 13 where the event was hosted by Diana Meneses and Gerard Sison while in Wonder Woman and Superman costumes, respectively. It was also revealed that Senator Manny Pacquiao would be the ambassador of the convention.

The Comic-Con Asia 2018 is being produced by PSL Entertainment and Nam Entertainment Group. Miss Pauline Laping, Chairman and Producer of PSL Entertainment said...
"What makes Comic Con Asia different is the great balance between international and Asian content. With the local Filipino audience very up to date with both American box office hits and Japanese anime, for example, the Philippines is the best place to have a comic con that is uniquely Asian."
According to the Comic Con Asia website, they plan to launch the CCA app in October, then online registration process will be opened in November while online tickets sale will begin in December. However, the organizers have not yet unveiled who will be their guests and speakers for the event but the video below showcases other exciting lineup such as talks, cosplay competition, panel discussion etc.

I think this is a great news, especially to those who were not able to attend the AsiaPOP Comicon this year like me or to those who are already missing the experience. We won't be needing to wait until August of next year again to experience this one of a kind gathering that keeps getting better every year.

In addition to AsiaPOP Comicon getting bigger and more exciting every year, it is also nice to know that more and more events like these are now happening in the Philippines. In fact we even had other similar "con" events that happened this year so far. There's the ToyCon 2017, History Con Philippines 2017, Mindanao Toy Con 2017, GameCon PH and many others here.
