Bigger, bolder, and better. HISTORY Con is back and ready to give you another whirlwind adventure. Expect the largest entertainment convention’s hustle and bustle to occur at the World Trade Center from August 10 to 13, 2017, where avid attendees will get to meet more famous celebrities, visit over 300 exhibitors’ displays, try to break three new world records, and even more!

In a world of brainwashing and basic television shows, it's rare to come across a channel that enables viewers to learn and enjoy at the same time. HISTORY, the leading destination for award-winning series such as Vikings and Celebrity Car Wars, is undeniably a not-so-hidden gem where its viewers can enjoy an immersive history learning experience through a plethora of multimedia platforms. Likewise, the Manila HISTORY Con event in August will provide that same learning and enjoyment in an even more interactive format!

Be sure to catch your favorite stars of the HISTORY channel, from ultimate biker chick and Ride ‘N Seek host Jamie Dempsey to the incredibly talented airbrush artist Horny Mike of Counting Stars. Just for those in the Philippines, Rick Harrison of Pawnstars is back by popular demand to join the stellar line up and meet with his devoted fans in Manila.

It doesn’t stop there. The convention will also include local talent such as Filipino personalities Phoemela Baranda and Gaby Dela Merced from Celebrity Car Wars, so don’t forget your camera!

Whatever your interest, there will definitely be something that caters to you. If you happen to grow weary of seeing your favorite HISTORY celebrities at the star-studded convention, take a break by checking out the exhibitors and experiences available such as a medieval battle, a shooting range, and a special talk with NASA astronaut Barry Wilmore! Release your inner child and run wild with the ATV rides or stay cozy and experience the immersive tiny house nation! Don’t forget to bring your best foot forward for the airsoft wargame and your textbook for the history bee inter-school tournament! 

With an astounding 50,000 attendees at the four-day, jam-packed event in 2016, it will be no surprise that this year’s astonishing convention will be met with a much larger crowd of eager fans! Not to mention that you’ll be in for a treat since any ticket you purchase will automatically enter you into a marvelous raffle with several goodies up for grabs.

BMake sure to buy your tickets at SM ticket outlets or online at the SM Tickets website. See you all at the World Trade Center from August 10 to 13 for the largest mind-blowing entertainment convention in Manila!
