Leading global smart device brand OPPO recently hosted OPPO Inspiration: Ahead, an event that empowered Filipinos to live a more creative and inspired life while embracing innovative technology. The event championed different passions and fields of creativity such as fashion, photography, content creation, and music.
The event was held at the BGC Amphitheater in Taguig City last March, and allowed guests to participate in interactive booths that let them experience the capabilities of the new OPPO smartphones and devices. They also had the opportunity to meet OPPO’s ambassadors and partner content creators Magic Liwanag, David Guison, Pam Quinones, and Daryl Chang plus OPPO celebrity brand ambassadors Bea Alonzo and Nadine Lustre! Also gracing the event were OPPO AVP & President of Overseas Sales & Services Billy Zhang and OPPO APAC President Andy Shi.
“At OPPO, Inspiration Ahead means we will always work hard to bring the kindness of technology to the world. We aim to use technology to make the world a happier place, as we collaborate with our partners and of course, all of you, to rise up to the challenges of the day. Through innovation and inspiration, we believe that we can help the society overcome anything to build a better future together,” said Joanarc Sales, Head of CRM and Public Relations at OPPO Philippines.
Guests learned practical photography and fashion tips and tricks from the best in the industry. Fashion icons Daryl Chang and Pam Quinones educated the crowd on maximizing their OPPO smartphones for capturing stylish looks and outfits. As fashion magazine editors and stylists themselves, Daryl and Pam shared how they find the drive to create looks that are unique and make a statement all these years.
Meanwhile, celebrity photographer Magic Liwanag and content creator David Guison taught the guests how to take your photography skills to the next level with OPPO smartphones. Magic also talked about how he captures photos that inspire and tell stories while David elaborated on how he constantly reinvents himself and channels authenticity as a content creator.
During the much-anticipated meet-and-greet, Nadine stressed the importance of taking a step back and allowing yourself to recharge to stay inspired and creative. She shared that after traveling in and out of the metro, she was able to keep her mental health in check and become more productive. “Find the chance to go on a beautiful journey,” Lustre said.
Bea Alonzo was candid about her creative process as an actress, content creator, and businesswoman. What keeps her inspired is how she leaves a fragment of her authentic self in every role and every work she ventures into. “When I am presenting myself on camera as Bea the vlogger, of course, I share my authentic self. I share my authentic joys, days, and hobbies” Alonzo said.
Guests were also treated to great music from the acts of Fern. and Ace Banzuelo. OPPO Reno series brand ambassadors Leanne and Naara were also present during the event to serenade the crowd with their greatest hits.
