From the year 2020 until 2021, we witnessed a rise in digital content creators. Since the majority of Pinoys were staying at home, a lot were inspired to entertain via platforms like YouTube, Kumu, and Tiktok. Established digital content creators, on the other hand, reached a wider audience and produced innovative content.
That said, whether you are a fan or an aspiring content creator, you'll want to check out BaiCon InFest, a digital event that will happen from October 30 to 31, 2021. Know more about it below!
What is BaiCon?
The biggest gathering of creators and influencers in the country. It is an annual event that started in 2018 and was held in Cebu City. The event seeks to connect creators and influencers to their fans and audiences, as well as brands and agencies. It will be available on different platforms like Kumu, YouTube, and Facebook.
The event is presented by the Republiq Group of Companies (RGC), VisMin’s leading digital transformation company, in collaboration with the Creator and Influencer Council of the Philippines, a newly established organization of creators, influencers, and marketers in the Philippines which aims to shape, inspire, educate and empower the creator and influencer industry.
Bea Alfar Evardone, the Group Chief Operating Officer and Creative Strategist of RGC, aims to elevate the digital entertainment industry. She's a firm believer in empowerment and she produced campaigns that urge women to love themselves beyond their imperfections. And for this year's BaiCon she made sure that inclusivity and the digital revolution will be the major focus.
