ARCHCon Cebu 2023

Picture this: a weekend of pure awesomeness at ARCHcon Cebu 2023, right in the IC3 Convention Hall on the weekend of November 18 and 19, 2023.

The IC3 Convention Hall served as the perfect playground for the multifaceted event. Its spacious design, encompassing both the ground and second floors, has lots of space for everyone to explore. The well-planned setup made it easy for everyone to move around without any problems. Plus, the nice air conditioning made the whole place comfy and pleasant for everyone during the weekend.

What made ARCHcon Cebu 2023 even more awesome was its commitment to a cause. The Game Development Area showcased local talents, and the Artists Alley and Crafters Corner let creative folks display their talents. The Merch and Food Market, including themed cafes, offered tasty treats and exclusive goodies.

Competitions like the International Cosplay Competition and various hobby contests brought out the best in attendees. The dedicated photo area became a place to capture the vibrant spirit of the event, filled with cosplayers and photographers sharing their love for what they do.
