The world’s biggest mechanical keyboard event happened last October 21, 2022 at the Metrotent, Pasig City, Philippines with over 2,603 tickets sold. Zion Studios PH organized the Grand Lason and it was the first time to organize a huge convention for mechanical keyboard enthusiasts in the Philippines.
The Grand Lason Brands
It was a jam-packed event where tons of brands and stores joined together. Major brands that are known in the Mechanical Keyboard scene participated in the said event like ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG), CableMod, Rakk Gears, and Fantech Philippines. They were also joined by retail stores in mechanical keyboard scenes like Gosu Gaming Gears, Iron Meets Wood, Hobby Dynamics, and many more. Aside from the major brands and specialty shops, esports organizations like Tier One Entertainment and Oasis Gaming were also present in the event.
Zion Studios PH came up with activities and programs for the event. It was hosted by Eri Neeman – a great celebrity host and a fellow mechanical keyboard enthusiast.
Fun Activities Happened
They also hosted a WPM contest where participants battled out to see who would be the fastest typer. They also hosted a team battle build, where two groups with three participants must build a Zion Zen67 in a span of 40 Minutes. The audience then will choose which team had the best mod and best-sounding keyboard. And lastly, because people can showcase their personal mechanical keyboards, they hosted the best mechanical keyboard contest. The judges came from the mechanical keyboard community – Keyboard Addicts PH, Mechanical Keyboard Warriors PH, and Cebu Mechanical Keyboard Enthusiasts. They rated how each were styled, built, and sound while typing.
Along with the contests that happened throughout the event, they also gave away tons of items courtesy of the brands who participated in the event.
Special Guests At The Event
Apart from Eri Neeman as the special guest in the event, they were also joined by Juanito “Quiccs” Maiquez where he showcased his mechanical keyboard collaboration work: the Quiccs x Mammoth75 mechanical keyboard, Quiccs x Kulermats desk mat, Quiccs x Wuque Studio Keycaps, Quiccs x Cablemod cable, and Quiccs Teq63 Toy.
