FurryPinas is the Philippine's furry convention that is held each year in Metro Manila, Philippines. Currently, it is Asia's largest furry convention with an attendance of 1,542 in 2018. FurryPinas was envisioned to serve as the annual hub for furry contents with the belief that the furry hobby is for anyone who wants to be interested in it, making it accessible and relatable to anyone - in the form of fursuiting, arts, cosplaying, music, games, toys, anime, movies, shows, literature, and any existing types of medium.
The first FurryPinas was held at SMX Convention Center on May 19-20, 2018 which is the largest private venue in the Philippines for trade events, industry conventions, corporate functions, and international exhibitions. The convention center was chosen due to its accessibility and convenience; being nearly at the middle of the capital of the country, only 20 minutes away from the country's international airport, and being right across the SM Mall of Asia which is considered as the third largest mall in the world.
