Pop-Culture is Back in Asia: CONQuest 2022

Pop-Culture is back, and so is the coverage

It’s been a while since the HereBeGeeks’ team has had major stuff to be excited along with our readers; but with international travel restrictions easing across the world and live events resurfacing everywhere, we’re now super excited to get back to reigniting that spark for everyone.

CONQuest 2022 is poised to be one of the biggest pop-culture, cosplay & gaming events in South-East Asia. Happening at the SMX Convention Center in Manila, “expect to see the hypest college esports rivalries, famous creators like Kyedae and V33Wise, the latest games and gadgets, amazing cosplay, live music, educational industry panels, endless booths of art and merchandise, and so much more.”

The Activities

CONQuest 2022 will have a massive bunch of activities for attendees to get into, with community panels, art booths, a freeplay arcade that even has retro games available as well as a tech & game expo area and of course, celebrity meet & greets! CONQuest 2022 will also play host to the finals of the Alliance Games – the biggest campus gaming league in the Phillippines featuring competitive games including LoL, Valorant, CoDM and Wild Rift.

With all the exciting content happening, it’ll be a fully packed weekend for the convention goers for sure.

Pretty much the most exciting part of the upcoming event is the massive list of celebrity guests that will be coming down to attend CONQuest 2022! From gaming talents, voice actors, artists as well as content creators, the line-up includes pop-culture icons like

The Details

CONQuest 2022 will be happening from July 23rd-24th at the SMX Convention Center in Manila, Philippines.

As of time of writing, general 2-day weekend and daily tickets are still available on CONQuest 2022’s website- unfortunately their special passes have sold out while most special meet & greet tickets (sold separately from the event tickets) are either sold out or running out fast. International travel to the Philippines is possible with no major requirements so start planning if you wanna go!

If you can’t make it, don’t fret. There’ll be loads of event coverage to look out for, so make sure to check for the hashtags – #CQ2022 & #LetsGo on all major social & new media platforms. You can also catch an event walkabout livestream with AGCtv (aka me!) on to watch a livestream walkabout!
