2023 PPOPCON MANILA to push through as 3-day event in July 
The event will be capped off with a live concert featuring several P-pop acts such as SB19, BGYO, BINI, MNL48, ALAMAT

MANILA, Philippines – Good news, P-pop fans! After postponing its original March schedule, the Pinoy Pop Convention (PPOPCON) 2023 is finally pushing through on July 14 to 16 at Araneta City in Cubao, Quezon City.

The 2023 edition, which will be PPOPCON’s second year to showcase Filipino culture and music, has been extended to a three-day event. 

Its highly successful inaugural edition in April 2022 was only two days long. Its March 2023 event, which didn’t push through due to “logistical concerns,” was also supposed to be a two-day event from March 18 and 19.

According to a press release, the additional day for the upcoming event is “to give attendees more chances to bond with the entire PPOP community.” 

Irene Jose, COO of Uniprom Inc, the entertainment unit of Araneta Group, teased that it will be “one big celebration to enjoy the best P-pop has to offer this year.” 

“Expect the 2023 PPOCON MANILA convention and concert to be filled with fun activities and breathtaking performances that will elevate the PPOP fan gathering experience,” she added.
