Universal Events and Entertainment, a subsidiary of Al Ahli Holding Group (AAHG) announced today that AsiaPOP Comicon Manila 2017 will take place on August 25 to 27 at the SMX Convention Center.
“Things are definitely going to be bigger. If anything, the overwhelming success of the first two AsiaPOP Comicons has inspired us to keep working harder at bringing better experiences with exciting content into the Manila convention,” said Abdulla Mahmood, director of marketing and international business development of AAHG.
This year, AsiaPOP partners with Netflix as one of the event’s main sponsors, so guests can expect experiences related to their original series and films (Riverdale, The Defenders, or 13 Reasons Why, perhaps?)
According to Mahmood, they have been open to fan wishes and suggestions and are likely to bring celebrities and artists who are “most requested.” However, at this point, nothing is final.
What’s final is the return of Hall M and some good news — they might extend the time for special activities in this area to give more people a chance to see it.
There will also be returning artists, animation designers and graphic designers.
GIST will keep you updated on the celebrities and artists that will be attending.
