Hey there Rear guards!

Here are more updates from the 2nd Press Conference of Chara Expo 2017 which is on the 9th and 10th of September. (link to the previous write up on the 1st press conference written by Dempster : click > @ -Dempster- Reporting Live (not really) from Chara Expo’s Press Conference )

The convention this year will still be (unfortunately) clashing with Singapore Toys, Games, and Comic Convention (STGCC), but good news, both the conventions are only one MRT stop away 🙂 ( closest stations: STGCC @ Bayfront MRT ; Chara Expo @ Esplanade MRT) for everyone who are still deciding on which to attend to, WHY NOT BOTH? 🙂 Tickets could be bought over the individual websites and also on the day itself.

Also, just to inform, Dempster and ZaCaptain would be attending Chara Expo while Leon would be attending STGCC ,but will still be joining us for Chara Expo for a shorter time.

There was a second Press Conference for Chara Expo 2017 held on the 31st of August 2017. With the convention only one week away, there were a little more updates.

There are only a few additional updates upon the partners for the convention (photos below)

(sadly Sam and Leon did not get a very good space in this press conference so do bear with some parts of the screen being blocked)
