Hundreds lined up on opening day, March 9, 2013, for the Cherry Convention, a festival celebrating the unique culture of games, cosplay, hobbies and other aspects of Pinoy pop culture.  Held at SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1 and 2, this bonanza featured online game tournaments, exhibits, vendor stalls, game booths, a cosplay competition, and many more.

Everyone who came was treated to freebies and giveaways like posters, accessories, and online promos, among others.  The event also featured the birthday bash of Ms. Alodia Gosengfiao, the Philippine’s premier cosplay idol. She entertained the crowd with her irresistible charm, wit and style.  With her extensive experience and knowledge of the world of cosplaying, she was also an honored  judge for the cosplay competition.

Held over the weekend, this two-day event hosted competitions among the top gaming teams and individuals in the country, battling it out live throughout the duration of the convention.  Big prizes awaited all those who won their respective games and divisions.

All those who attended were given quite a treat and were clamoring for more as Cherry Convention drew to a close.  With its array of special guests, games and attractions, Cherry Convention was a certified success in celebrating pop culture in the Philippines.
