Posted on Jun 3, 2023 in Basketball

For a country that loves basketball so much, it boggles the mind that it took so long for someone to come up with a basketball conference. BASKETBALLCON is coming to Manila this June, a sports and lifestyle event made for everyone that loves the game.

While the name implies what it is – BCON is more than just a conference. It’s a great way for basketball enthusiasts to come together, connect and experience the sport they love in a unique and exciting way. So what’s going to happen at BASKETBALLCON ’23? Aside from panel talks and discussions, there’s also a 3v3 streetball challenge, web3 emerging technology sessions, exhibitor booths and tons of other exhibitions.

Three-time NBA world champion and current LA Lakers assistant coach Phil Handy will be the keynote speaker at this year’s inaugural event. I’m sure majority of Pinoy hoop fans know of Phil Handy, whether it was his stint in Cleveland, Toronto or LA. Aside from Handy, former pro players, coaches, sports analysists and web3 experts will be in attendance as well.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing BASKETBALLCON to Manila,” said BCON event director and founder Marco Selorio. “Our aim is to create an event that celebrates the Filipino passion for basketball, builds community and showcases the incredible talent in the country. Come and participate, whether you’re a student, NBA die-hard fan, sneaker collector, player, coach, or entrepreneur. We cannot wait to see everyone there!”

BASKETBALLCON will take place at Activate Hoop Arena in Mandaluyong Metro Manila on Sunday June 25. For more information, visit
