PVB's Bigger, Better World War II Exhibit at History Con 2017


Philippine Veterans Bank's promises a bigger and more interactive World War II Exhibit at this year's History Con in Manila at the World Trade Center from August 10-13, 2017.

"We at Veterans Bank are honored to be part once again of the History Con 2017 and we look forward to even more partnerships in the future with History Asia as we see a lot of common goals." said PVB Chairman, Roberto F. de Ocampo, OBE.

"Our aim has always been to create awareness of WWII history among the youth, instill pride of country and people and bask in the glory of our heroes' courage and bravery in fighting for freedom. We must always remember that our peace and freedom came with a price." Said De Ocampo.

For his part, A&E Networks Asia Head Jacque Ruby also thanked PVB for joining History Con saying, "Their artifacts help make the convention both entertaining and educational especially for the students visiting the event. This year's History Con is themed on the 75th anniversary of the start of WWII in the Philippines"

"We're promising a more exciting History Exhibit this 2017. Aside from the vintage photos, memorabilia, and artifacts from World War II, we'll display a WWII M3 Stuart tank and an actual WWII Jeep. Through the Philippine Living History Society, we'll help visitors experience how it feels to be part of World War II by wearing one of several WWII-era uniform replicas like as an American G.I., Japanese Imperial Soldier, or a Filipino Guerrilla." Said Mike Villa-Real, PVB VP for Corporate & Consumer Relations.

All these are available at the War of Our Fathers Exhibit only at the History Con 2017! They can also join and listen to uniformed members of the Philippine Living History Society give brief history talks and stage battle re-enactments.

History Con will also feature a star-studded lineup of popular History personalities including "Counting Cars'" "Horny" Mike Henry; "The Pickers'" Danielle Colby; "Ride N' Seek's" Jaime Dempsey ; "Photo Face Off's" Justin Mott; "The History Hustle's" Simon Yin; and the cast of "Celebrity Car Wars" like Phoemela Baranda.
