PH Web3 Festival, the largest Web3 event in the Philippines, was a success! Plenty of memorable side events, insightful talks and panel discussions, as well as fruitful networking opportunities, were experienced by the Play It Forward team.
Within the week-long celebration, Play It Forward attended and hosted a variety of parties and networking events near the main conference venue in Bonifacio Global Center and around Makati City. Here is a recap of how Play It Forward enjoyed and celebrated the PH Web3 Festival 2022:
PHWeb3Fest Main Conference
As the PH Web3 Festival aims to boost the adoption of blockchain technology and Web3 in the Philippines, plenty of talks from local and international speakers were held at the event’s main conference.
The main conference started on the second day until the fourth day of the week-long event, which consisted of keynotes, fireside chats, and panel discussions. Our favorite was the panel discussion about “Getting From Zero to One in Gaming,” where Janze De Guzman, CEO of playgroundzero.io, shared how their project can help gamers, guilds, and game studios find their way in Web3 and GameFi.

PH Metacon Night
In the middle of the week-long Web3 celebration, Play It Forward, Blockdaemon, and PlayMining hosted an official PHWeb3Fest side event, PH Metacon Night. This invite-only event gathered developers, media, investors, community builders, and KOLs in one hidden speakeasy.
While drinks and music were enjoyed throughout the night, the attendees did not forget to take the chance to network and interact with fresh and familiar faces in the Web3 industry. We will release a separate blog about our whole PH Metacon Night experience, so make sure to follow Play It Forward’s social media accounts and website.
PIF and Railings University PH and SG team meetup
One of the highlights of the PH Web3 Festival for Play It Forward is our first team meetup! Play It Forward comprises diverse talents from Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. It was such a delight when our SG team flew to the Philippines to meet with the PH team and enjoy the PH Web3 Festival together.
Long-awaited in-person introductions, heartwarming messages, as well as fun games and activities were done throughout the team meetup. Members of Play It Forward’s crypto gaming guild, Railings University, also joined the event.
After more than a year of virtual meetings and communication, we have finally met most of the team members who are passionately aiming to “make play more rewarding!” The night is filled with great food and happy memories that the Play It Forward and Railings University teams will forever cherish.
