So, I am no Tech Geek to know all about phones! When I got the invitation to attend the India Launch of Zenfone 2 by ASUS through an Indiblogger event, I was quite surprised myself. The launch was to happen in Kingdom of Dreams and it will be launched by Saif Ali Khan, a Bollywood Actor and Daboo Ratnani, a famous celebrity photographer I have been following for years now!
I have real fond memories from Kingdom of Dreams. I went there first for my first Anniversary last year and I had blogged an OOTD from the same day here. The magic & marvel of that place still gives me wonders. Last time we went, we couldn’t get into the Nautanki Mahal, which is the state-of-the-art theater build within the theme park. When I knew that the event is going to be held in this very hall, I couldn’t resist myself from attending.
Apart from all that, the best thing about blogger meets is the networking and socializing. The virtual world has its limitation and plus points. Still, nothing compares to these wonderful meets where you meet bloggers from all walk of life, writing about a world of stuff. It is a refreshing and inspiring experience.
The Zenfone2 Launch was happening on a bright sunny day. The event entrance was done up real well. It was grand and pompous. One couldn’t help but notice the sheer volume of people too. It was the Biggest Blogger meet too. After the quick check at the entrance, the bloggers were redirected to the Nautanki Mahal- the auditorium.
I loved the decor and the way it was changed to fit the event. It was almost pitch dark except for blue and white LED lights that made it look all cosmic & techy! This 2 made of zenfones blew our mind away!!
I did not appreciate the smoking up of the room, to add to the mystery. I felt claustrophobic!
There was a demo hall, where we had hands on experience with the phone. As a beauty blogger, I take a lot of selfies. So, the first feature I tested was the selfie and I was blown away by the clarity and the skin-enhancing feature of the front camera. Awesome!
The event started off with an awesome performance by Aditi Sharma. Her voice was heavenly and her stage presence was cosmic.
ASUS kept to theme and mystery all the while, even with the stage design & lighting. The show was hosted by Anusha Dandedkar.
Soon ASUS CEO Mr. Eric came up to unveil the phone and speak about the product.
Followed by stage presence of Mr.Robert Jahns (Instagram – Nois7) One of the Top 15 Instagrammers in the world along with Dabboo Ratnani (A Famous Indian Photographer) and announced all the new projects that Robert is doing worldwide with ASUS and the collaboration that he is doing in India with Dabboo. Look at them taking selfies!! Fangirl Moment!!
Then, came the Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan in a grand entry from below the stage. After much explanation of the product features & design, from various representatives of ASUS and Intel, they announced the prices and that it will be selling exclusively on Flipkart.
Soon, the event ended for Lunch. After lunch at the Culture Gully in Kingdom of Dreams, the real Blogger meet started. Few lucky bloggers won themselves Zenfone2. I won myself a mug and t-shirt. It was an awesome event. The networking and socializing was the best part of the event.
We met this cute lil blogger who was just 9 year old. She blogs by herself and she writes on her school, life and experiences. Ah… I remember my childhood. I wish Blogging was available then!
Meeting fellow Bloggers is always fun!!
Until we meet again
