We Cel­e­brated 2015’s Most Out­stand­ing Tech Brands and In­no­va­tive Tech Prod­ucts at the Tech Awards 2015

As we wel­come 2016 and bid farewell to the end of 2015, we cel­e­brated the 13th an­niver­sary of HWM Malaysia. 2015 also marked the se­cond year we held our Tech Awards for Malaysia, giv­ing out a to­tal of 44 awards to the best tech brands and prod­ucts to grace the year of 2015.

Our Tech Awards this year took place at TGV Cin­e­mas, Jaya Shop­ping Cen­ter, in Sec­tion 14, Pe­tal­ing Jaya. Grac­ing the event were rep­re­sen­ta­tives from brands and dis­trib­u­tors that were nom­i­nated in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing ASUS, BenQ, Canon, Dell, Epson, FU­JI­FILM, Garmin, HP, and many oth­ers.

This year, we also had four videos star­ring mem­bers of the edi­to­rial team de­pict­ing dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios that techies can re­late to for the view­ing plea­sure of our guests. The first video was played at the start of the event, with the re­main­ing three slot­ted in be­tween the speeches by our VIPs and the awards pre­sen­ta­tion. That’s not all, as we have also pre­pared two rounds of lucky draws where stickers were placed un­der spe­cific seats and cer­tain pop­corn bar­rels.

At the end of the event, we had a screen­ing of the 20th Cen­tury Fox film Vic­tor Franken­stein, star­ring Daniel Rad­cliffe and James McAvoy, which tells the story of the fa­mous leg­end from the per­spec­tive of Franken­stein’s as­sis­tant.

As the years pre­ced­ing this, the end of our Tech Awards sig­ni­fied the end of an­other suc­cess­ful year. This year, our Tech Awards was made pos­si­ble thanks to our spon­sors – TGV Cin­e­mas, 20th Cen­tury Fox, Swiss-Gar­den Beach Re­sort Da­mai Laut, Swiss-Gar­den Ho­tel & Res­i­dences Kuala Lumpur, D’Ma­jes­tic Place by Swiss-Gar­den, Aloft Ho­tel Kuala Lumpur Sen­tral, Philips, The Man­dara Spa, Ot­ter­Box, Uber, Dash­ing, and Elite by Dash­ing.
