Happy to announce that we’ve been selected, with a whole group of other Malaysian social media moguls to partake in Maxis Hotlink’s very first ever #OHHSOME Fest. This is going to be fun. Find their press release below and come by to check out the fest.
KUALA LUMPUR – The social media scene has been thriving in Malaysiaover the last few years, and there is no denying the influence of what wasonce seen only as an alternative platform.
From online blogshops that have grown into large scale bazaars consisting of online retailers; to tweetups that have ballooned into large scalegatherings, from concerts of Youtubers to even awards celebrating the best of the online community – the influence of social media continues to grow from strength to strength in Malaysia.
For the first time, #OHHSOME Fest will be celebrating the glory of social media in Malaysia with a cross-platform event that will be the first of its kind in Malaysia
The #OHHSOME Fest organizing team is made up of social media activists, social media agencies, and also homegrown brands that have all been a part of the growth of the social media scene in Malaysia.
This first-ever #OHHSOME Fest is also a joint collaboration between key pioneers behind Malaysia’s emerging social media community and Hotlink, the prepaid brand of Maxis.
“#OHHSOME Fest is a natural extension of Hotlink’s ongoing promise to customers to “Keep the OHHSOME Internet Always on”. There are lots of digital award shows but this is really the first social media festival that is created by the internet community, for the local internet community. And we are glad we could help out.
“In addition to collaborating with the organizers as a brand partner and public awareness partner, Hotlink customers will get to enjoy lots of special #LiveLifeLoud privileges including opportunities to interact up close with global YouTube superstars such as WongFu and homegrown stars Elizabeth Tan and CapriceTV via the revolutionary Hotlink Red App”, said Navin Manian, Maxis’ Head of Prepaid.
#OHHSOME Fest will be a two day event on 13 December 2014 (Saturday) from 10am to 11pm and 14 December 2014 (Sunday) from 10am to 6pm at Avenue K.
