We’re sorry. #PMC14 won’t push through.

Dear colleagues at PACE,

PACE, ABS-CBN, and CHSM are prioritizing your health security.

As an alternative, Pinoy Media Congress Caravans will be held in selected regions. We will be posting updates regarding this through our Facebook Page and website.

For those who have deposited their registration payment, please expect an email from PACE on the refund process.

Should you have other concerns, please email [email protected]

Thank you for your kind understanding.


The Philippine Association of Communication Educators (SEC-registered as Philippine Advocates of Communication Education Association, Inc.) and ABS-CBN Corporation are pleased to invite your institution to the 14th Pinoy Media Congress (PMC) which will be held from 20 to 21 February, 2020 at the Paraclete Auditorium, College of the Holy Spirit Manila at 163 E.

PMC is the country’s biggest and longest-running annual gathering of communication students, professors, experts, and practitioners. This year’s theme is “20/20 Vision for Philippine Media’s Future”. This will look into the crucial role media will perform in the new decade.

The two-day conference will cover discussions on journalism, media, and entertainment in today’s digital world. The third day, which will be held on February 22 at ABS-CBN, will feature workshops and studio tours, among others.
