Gamers and game developers flocked the hall of the SMX Convention Center in Mall of Asia to take part in the biggest gathering of gamers in the Philippines, and possibly Southeast Asia, the Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit. Presented by PLDT Home Fibr, in cooperation with MSI, ESGS is considered one of the premier gaming events in the Philippines.

At the massive three-day event, AOC Gaming Monitors and Philips Monitors showcased their best at the AGON (AOC Gaming On) and Philips Monitors booth. Packed with activities and giveaways, there was never a dull moment at the AGON booth.


By registering at the booth, attendees were able to snag souvenirs from AOC Gaming and Philips Monitors, from flash drives to mouse pads, to basketballs and lanyards. Registering also gave the attendees a chance to win a monitor from Philips Monitors. Three lucky attendees were able to bring home Philips Monitors, with one winner each day.

Mineski TV talent Allyza Taylor was present and hosted the activities for the booth. Prominent streamer and caster Nico Nazario handled the activities on Day 1 of the convention. Rikki Quiapon, League of Legends PH’s shoutcaster, hosted for Day 2 of the event. Gracing the AGON booth with her presence on Day 3 was model Sachzna Laparan, who challenged attendees in a game of Street Fighter V.


Gamers were treated to the latest lineup of AGON Monitors on display. Leading the frontline is the AG322FX with its 32-inch curved display and 144Hz flicker-free display. The AG322FX takes immersion up a notch with its curved display, filling your field of vision with nothing but your screen. It also helps reduce eye strain and fatigue thanks to its 144Hz refresh rate and low input lag.

Alongside the beastly AG322FX is the AG271QX and AG271QG, giving users freedom to choose AdaptiveSync or G-SYNC. Both the AG271QX and AG271QG offers flicker-free gaming with the use of their respective technologies. The AG271QX uses AdaptiveSync, which can be used with Select AMD or Intel GPU chips. If you’re on the green team, the AG271QG takes advantage of NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology to offer tear-free gaming for a smooth experience.
