WHAT IS MANGA FEST?
Manga Festival or Manga Fest is an event that gathers all sellers of manga, anime, merchandise, and even the works of manga artists in the Philippines.

WHAT ARE THE ACTIVITIES?
There will be a selling area for books and other items provided by the exhibitors and/or sponsors. However, we request those items with explicit content to be sealed to prevent guests who are still below 18 years old from browsing these items. Fun games, contests, panel discussions, workshop and meet and greet with several artists will also be held during the event.

WHEN AND WHERE WILL IT BE HELD?
Manga Fest will be held on May 4, 2019 (10 AM until 6 PM) at THE SPACE, 4th floor of the Precious Pages Building. It is located at #16 Sto. Domingo Avenue, Quezon City (across Angelicum College and the entrance is next to 7 Eleven).

WHO CAN JOIN?
Filipino manga artists, shops or groups that sell art materials, merchandise, art books, manga (Japanese or English) and even Japanese food suppliers are joining as sellers. And guests of various ages are welcome to join in our activities.

IS THERE AN EXHIBITOR’S FEE OR A SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE?
We would get 10% from the sellers’ total sales during the event in exchange for the table. A form will be given to you by our staff. We will be providing one long table and three chairs for each sponsor while the same set-up will be shared by three indie artists exhibitors. We will, however, only allow two banners or roll-up per table. Sponsorship packages vary on the products or services that the invited company or group can provide. There will also be an added cost if a sponsor will request to be located near the limited electrical outlet.

WHAT IS THE INGRESS / EGRESS TIME?
The ingress for the organizers and exhibitors will start from 7 AM until 9 AM and the program will begin at 10 AM until 6 PM. But guests will only be allowed to enter the venue at 10 AM until 6 PM only. Early birds will be asked to wait at the ground floor area and must register there to get a guest number.
