Highlights from the event include: the album launch of KARA’s “Step” and ZE:A’s “Exciting” by Warner Music, over P260,000 ($6,000USD) worth of prizes and giveaways; 3,000 exclusive Kpopcon giftbags, 85 fanclub booths and concessionaires; talent competitions, activity booths, games, raffles, special performances, and the most awaited 3rd Philippine Kpop Awards!

Co-presented by the Philippine’s leading telecommunication company, GLOBE Mobile Internet; in cooperation with the country’s biggest RECORD LABELS Universal Records Philippines, PolyEast Records and Warner Music Philippines; MUSIC RETAILER giants Astroplus and Odyssey Music & Video; sponsored by Asian brands like Giordano, Nature Republic, Holika Holika, Bulgogi Brothers and Kitiwit; and with MEDIA COVERAGE ranging from print, television and the international online community, the 3rd Philippine KPOP Convention is truly the biggest and the most prestigious gathering of KPOP enthusiasts in the country!

In the previous years, our beneficiary has been Gawad Kalinga. Proceeds from the 2nd Philippine Kpop Convention went to the Kalinga sa Bayan campaign particularly to fund the activities for the 2011 Bayani Challenge in Bantayan Island in Cebu. This year, we will extend our cause to animal welfare in our country through the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

In lieu of tickets, we ask our guests to donate a minimum of P150 ($3.50USD) to be given to our beneficiaries. We will also be accepting donations in kind during the event for the victims of the calamity in Mindanao (rice, canned goods, clothes, etc) and medical care and rehabilitation for the rescued dogs in the Illegal Dogfighting Case in Cavite (dog food, steel bowls, cleaning materials, IV line–macro drip, 3cc syringes, hydrogen peroxide, medicines such as pet/generic multivitamins, liver supplements, and other veterinary supplies). For more information on how to donate, visit the GK website and the PAWS Facebook page. Staff from both organizations will assist in the donations on Dec 30.

We encourage everyone to be a part of this event as we celebrate our passion for life, love and music! This is fandom for a cause! Happy holidays and see you all at the 3rd Philippine Kpop Convention!
