 Ms. Camille Montejo received the award in behalf of his father, Secretary Mario Montejo of Department of Science and Technology, TAG Media and PR CEO Andrew Nicolas and Former Ambassador of Chile Roberto Mayorga

Please check the Top 10 Takeaways from the event which made it another successful occasion under TAG Media and Public Relations.

1. VIZA Card- Sponsors are the backbone of any events, since it will not be possible without the support of these companies. To make sure that the attendees and visitors will visit all the booths, TAG Media and Public Relations distributed  stamp cards. All attendees received one each to visit all booths in order for them to claim the loot bag/souvenir bag from the registration area. After visiting all the booths, the companies participating put the stickers or signed the circle area in the VIZA card as proof that the attendee visited their respective booths.

2. Business Card Exchange Activity- The organizer's one objective is to endorse the attendees to their target clients or partners. The Business Card Exchange Activity will made sure that all attendees met their target clients. For every 2 minutes during the session, the attendee will change partner in order to do the pitch and exchange business card. All attendees participated and the 30 minutes time might nor be enough for the 200 participants but at least an engagement has been made.
