In the midst of the Philippine Web3 Festival celebration, Play It Forward, Blockdaemon, and PlayMining hosted an official side event, PH Metacon Night. This invite-only event happened last November 16 where media, investors, community builders, and KOLs gathered in one hidden speakeasy for a night of drinks, music, and conversations.

A host of Web2 and Web3 game developers were also present at the venue, which was at Bank Bar, Icon Plaza in BGC. The event was organized to further solidify the connections that lay It Forward, Blockdaemon, and PlayMining had as well as to meet some of the partners and Web3 community in the Philippines in person.
