HISTORY Con 2017, Manila’s biggest entertainment convention is back and promises a bigger, better, and bolder showcase at the World Trade Centre Manila from August 10 to 13.
Enjoy over 300 exciting exhibits and experiences, from historic and classic displays of traditional, as well as contemporary and popular cultures; including the first-ever ‘FYI Home & Living Fair’ and exclusive talks and workshops by your favorite stars.
Back by popular demand, Corey Harrison (Pawn Stars), Jaime Dempsey (Ride N’ Seek) and Justin Mott (Photo Face-off) returns to the Philippines, alongside “Horny” Mike Henry (Counting Cars), Danielle Colby (The Pickers), Ryu Lim (Forged In Fire), and Phoemela Baranda (Celebrity Car Wars). Popular international celebrities from FYI’s hit shows John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin (Tiny House Nation), and Adam Liaw (Destination Flavour) will also join the stellar line up.
This year’s world record attempts will feature special guests and internet sensations that took the world by storm. Get to watch professional freestyle basketball dunker Jordan Kilganon, also known as “The Dude who dunked in jeans,” as he performs multiple “Mission Impossible” attempts. His 50-inch vertical jump which allows him to do acrobatic dunks is a feat not to be missed. Catch Takeru Kobayashi, one of the world’s most extraordinary professional competitive eaters, who is widely known for breaking the world record in eating 50 hotdogs in just 12 minutes. After multiple hugely successful world record attempts and performances internationally, both Jordan and Takeru will take on the challenge at HISTORY Con on a new series of world record attempts right here in Manila.
Other special guests include Barry E. Wilmore (Captain, U.S. Navy), a veteran of two spaceflights who has accumulated a total of 178 days in space as a NASA Astronaut, and Dr. Ambeth R. Ocampo, award-winning and distinguished public historian whose research covers the Philippines in the 19th Century. Both honorable guests will be conducting exclusive talks respectively at the mega convention.
This year, as part of HISTORY’s 10th anniversary celebration in Asia, 10 notable Filipinos who have had a significant impact on the nation’s life and culture will be awarded the HISTORY Maker Award at the closing ceremony.
