Last October 15, Billboard Philippines officially opened its doors to the world, announcing its plans to bring together the country in celebration of homegrown Filipino music.

At the event, everyone from executives to artists gathered around to catch up and look forward to the exciting things that are shaking the music industry today. Old friends and new acquaintances met on Billboard Philippines’ blue carpet, and even spent time together during the electrifying afterparty.

The event saw unlikely encounters like SB19’s Ken and KZ Tandingan, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and Juan Karlos Labajo, Modern Media Group Incorporated Chief Operating Officer Anne Bernisca with Raimund Marasigan, Badjao de Castro, and Blaster Silonga, Billboard Philippines Editor-In-Chief Bret Jackson and Careless Music Chairman James Reid, Joey G., Sitti, with Noel Cabangon, and more.

Check out some of the best reunions from the Billboard Philippines launch below.

Billboard Philippines’ debut issue is now available at SariSari.Shopping, Lazada, Shopee, and the Sari Sari Kiosk in Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City.
