MAY THE BEST BRANDS WIN
(And They Did)
We Celebrated 2015’s Most Outstanding Tech Brands and Innovative Tech Products at the HWM+HardwareZone.com.my 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 HWM+HardwareZone.com 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. Thanks also to our readers who have supported us thus far, and we hope you’ll continue to do so for the year ahead.
