Yaoi Expo

So. There’s finally been an official announcement for Yaoi Expo next year. It will be held, at the Bayanihan Center, Metro Manila on March  17, 2018.

Yaoi Expo is the successor of the previous yaoi convention – Lights Out and, after that, BlushCon.

Originally, Yaoi Expo was supposed to be held at Elements, ETON Centris, as previously announced. However, ETON Centris is to undergo a compulsory reconstruction resulting to the cancellation of the original venue. Thus, it has been moved to Bayanihan Center, Metro Manila.

Tickets sales will be done with two options – Event Brite 🤓 and Google Form.

Available tickets are at their usual rate:
Ticket Tier G – General Service – PHP 250.00 – admission only
Ticket Tier PG – Softcore – PHP 500.00 – admission + Ikemen Cafe
Ticket Tier SPG – Hardcore –  PHP 1,000.00 – admission + Ikemen Cafe + meet and greet with special guests

I’ll probably get the Hardcore, depending on who the special guests are. There will be 2. They will reveal them soon. I have this inkling that they are someone from the Yuri On Ice fandom~ 😍

On previous yaoi conventions, there are strict policies such as only taking photos for personal use and not allowing these photos to be posted in public. These rules have yet to be announced, but I think they’ll be around the same as it was. So by now, most yaoi fans are used to them since this has been the nth yaoi con.

🤓 I was very surprised with the Event Brite option!

I’m not married to Event Brite, but I would really recommend this option to other organizers of events since it’s very convenient.

I haven’t handled major events like a Yaoi Con (and have no plans to in the future, btw), but I’ve helped out in handling small events here and there. And to be honest, handling events are very tedious and not to mention, tiring. (So at the end of the day, we all have to thank all our event organizers for all their hard work. 🙇) And as most of us probably know, the Google Form works, but are done usually done very manually. And now comes, the Event Brite option!

For those who doesn’t know, Event Brite is a self-service ticketing platform you can use to handle all your ticketing problems, when doing events. You get to have your own event page where you can give out the link to, and the best part of it is that it has a payment option where all you have to do is link your Paypal merchant account to the Event Brite event page. Easy peasy! The payment option is run by Paypal. This means that you can receive payment using several options such as your Paypal funds, major banks and/or credit cards.

After you do an online event registration on Event Brite, you can also look for similar events or events around the area using Event Brite and there are other event planning tools too to help you promote and stuff.
