Some of the biggest gaming streamers and content creators are going to Manila, Philippines, to attend CONQuest 2023, an event of fun activities focused around art and gaming.

AcadArena’s award-winning gaming and pop culture convention will feature 70 local and international guests celebrating gaming, tech, music, pop culture, and everything. The event will boast popular streamers, cosplayers, content creators, and artists.

Gaming influencers at CONQuest 2023

Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter, YouTube’s most-watched female streamer and one of the co-owners of 100 Thieves, will headline this year’s CONQuest. 100 Thieve’s Leslie Ann “Fuslie” Fu is also one of the most anticipated guests at the event.

Imane “Pokimane” Anys, the most followed female streamer on Twitch, will also make an appearance along with some of your favorite streamers from Offline TV, such as Thomas “Sykunno,” Lily “LilyPichu” Ki, and Michael Reeves. “We even had OfflineTV as an April Fools’ joke. But thanks to the community’s undying passion, our dreams are coming true,” said CONQuest founder and AcadArena Chief Growth Officer Justin Banusing. The three-day convention is jam-packed with exciting activities such as celebrity show matches, panels, workshops, streamzone, tabletop and TCG, cosplays, art galleries, music night, and many more.

AcadArena’s Alliance Games MLBB and Valorant Finals will be held live at CONQuest. Fans can also enjoy performances of local bands, including The Rose.

100 Thieves’ full-ride scholarships

Acadarena recently announced its full-ride scholarships under 100 Thieves creators Valkyrae and Fuslie. Valkyrae’s Homecoming Scholarship is for passionate Filipino student gamers, while Fuslie’s Scholarship for Women in Gaming is for exemplary female student games. A total of 5 awardees will be granted these 100 Thieves’ scholarships.

Will Kyedae be at CONQUEST 2023

Kyedae “Kyedae” Shymko was initially announced as the headliner for this year’s event. However, traveling has been made impossible due to Kyedae’s current health situation.

Kyedae was well-loved at last year’s CONQUEST, and fans still look forward to meeting her again soon, and have also fully supported her decision to focus on her treatments.

CONQuest is a multi-venue setup, and activities are simultaneous. Fans are advised to track the
activity schedule and venue on CONQuest’s official website. The festival will start on June 2, 2023.
