Along with the celebration of their 10th anniversary in Asia, one of the biggest T.V. networks in the world, which is History Channel, will be conducting History Con Philippines 2017 at the World Trade Center Manila this August 10-13, 2017.
With the convention’s overwhelming success last year, avid viewers and even new supporters of the network have found their lair for knowledge in this four-day event. If you are a new believer and still thinking twice about attending the event, here are five reasons why you should bust those second thoughts and be part of 2017’s History Con.
HISTORY CON 2017 WILL BE GREATER THAN LAST YEAR’S
With a whopping amount of 50, 000 participants on their first and previous History Con 2016, Manila’s biggest entertainment convention will step their game up as they aim for this year’s event to be “bigger, better, and bolder.” A gathering full of activities, competitions, and different shows will make sure that your four-day stay at History Con 2017 will be worthwhile.
IT WON’T BREAK YOUR WALLET
Who says you can’t attend any conventions with less than Php500 in your wallet? History Con offers tickets in three different price ranges and it’s already up to you what kind of perks would you want. With only Php250, you can now gain an access to a Justin Mott photography workshop, lectures from trusted guest speakers, a pass to special activities such as exhibit and exciting tournaments, special screenings, and tons of freebies. Ticket packages are also on hand for schools and single purchases.
YOU WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO COME ACROSS YOUR MOST-AWAITED CELEBRITIES
If you’ve been to last year’s event and thought that it was already star-studded, this year’s convention will amaze you even more with a fresh lineup of artists entering the stage. History favorites such as Rick Harrison from Pawnstars, Ride ‘N Seek’s Jamie Dempsey, Horny Mike of Counting Cars, and more international stars will be amusing fans. Not only is it a celebrity-filled event because NASA Astronaut Barry Wilmore will be sharing a glimpse of the atmosphere beyond earth as a guest speaker for the affair. Of course, Filipino History stars will not want to miss the event as Forged in Fire finalist Ryu Lim and Phoemela Baranda from Celebrity Car Wars will also be present.
KNOWLEDGE IS A GREAT EXCUSE FOR A LONG WEEKEND
At this point of the year, the sound of “long weekend” can be symphony to our ears. But guess what? This four-day convention commencing on the 10th of August falls on Thursday and ends on a Sunday. Aside from knowledge you can acquire, you get to meet people who share the same thoughts as you.
YOU GET TO WITNESS ONE – OR MULTIPLE WORLD RECORD BREAKINGS
The previous convention in World Trade Center has been a ground for not just one but three broken world records. Few titles such as most hamburgers eaten in a minute, largest serving of mushrooms, and longest marathon watching were now copped by Filipinos due to this event. If you’re up to make history (and have some bragging rights in the future too), now is the perfect time to think about what kind of record you fancy breaking during History Con.
