With the organizers and partners for the upcoming TechXpo 2018 event happening this Saturday
 

The TechXpo 2018 is just around the corner. A few more days to be exact. The highlight of the TechXpo is definitely the TechXpo Cyber Games Tournament, jointly organized by D’Sunlit and Sigma Cyberspace where Progresif will be the title sponsor. A record pool prize of BND 15,000 is slated to be the biggest yet for Brunei cyber tournaments, featuring games such as Counter Strike, League of Legends, DOTA, Tekken 7, FIFA 18 (which I am joining) as well as Mobile Legends and Rules of Survival. All the registrations have been closed for now and there are more than 300 participants already that have signed up for the tournament.

Another highlight for the TechXpo are the robots, all the way from Belgium known as Zora Robotics NV (ZoraBots), a pretty interactive humanoid robot for the public to interact with.

The theme for this year’s TechXpo is “Innovative Technology for All” as the Chairman of InfoCom Federation Brunei, Sheikh Hj Abas, said that everything we do nowadays are linked with technology, even with food. Hence, the theme suits to attract crowd of all ages.

The Plenary Hall will be used for the upcoming TechXpo and do check it out as they will be special offers from participating vendors.

The event will take place this Friday 18th August and ends on 21st August 2018. Oh yea, if you are keen to try out the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 9, you can check out the demo unit at DST booth during the TechXpo before the official launch next week.

The TechXpo 2018 is organized by InfoCom Federation Brunei and D’Sunlit.

After a huge success for the first trail game (Epidemic: Race to Rescue), BAG Networks have launched the second edition, an augmented reality mobile game which will take place during the upcoming TechXpo 2018.

Dubbed the “Trail to TechXpo 2018”, registration has already been opened for all of you to participate leading to the upcoming event. The new game utilizes both GPS and AR technology with the help of your smartphones as you gather clues around Brunei-Muara district and the end point will be at TechXpo event itself at the International Convention Centre.

Apparently there will be 8 check points if I’m not mistaken for “Trail to TechXpo 2018” and the new game will three rounds. First step will be checking in on the checkpoints, then solve the puzzles during the TechXpo and final mystery will be on the main stage of the Plenary Hall at ICC. You can register your team here and good luck 😀

The prizes were not announced yet but the prizes will be sponsored by DST.

CF21 kicks off

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in lifestyle, Business, Social News

 

YB Dato Seri Paduka Dr. Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah, Minister of Finance II (center) as guest of honour, Jackson Ting, Managing Director of D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd and Dato Paduka Haji Danial Haji Hanafiah, Executive Director of D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd at the launch of the 21st Consumer Fair at the International Convention Centre.

 

Handing over a token of appreciation to the guest of honour
 

Who could have thought that the 21st edition of The Consumer Fair is finally up and running. The event has already contributed loads of revenue for event venue, the International Convention Centre and also the SME vendors, be it local or overseas.

D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd, formerly known as Sunlit Advertising, has always impressed the consumers with their highly anticipated consumer fair. This time round the set up is slightly different as compared to previous Consumer Fair. For the first time, the Plenary Hall is vacant due to its unavailability. The other vendors were located to other areas and rooms within the ICC. You might think it doesn’t look as big but honestly, I do prefer this format where other small rooms are being used. It helps to draw more traffic to those areas.

This time round, the lucky draw will be flight tickets if you purchase things at the Consumer Fair at ICC. This year’s theme revolved around glitch and tech. It’s a summation of the nostalgia and the current trend of technology.

Many have asked me if there will be any travel fair. Sadly, not this time. However, there are enough activities to keep you entertained. I love the Saber Game at TelBru and you stand a chance to win Oculus VR set or a PS4 with VR set for topping the scoring charts. There’s the “Best of Thai Street Food with activities where the winner gets a ticket to Bangkok. Water is free where Cuckoo provides an All Day Water Dispenser. Of course, the new gimmick is the Human Claw Machine. I tried it once and it’s pretty cool.

I shall update again later or just stalk me on my @ranoadidas Instagram.

Same old, same old. I can’t imagine it has been almost 10 years of consumer fair because the recent one hit its 19th Consumer Fair and it’s bi-annual event in Brunei Darussalam. Many organisations have run these types of events but none has reached the peak like how D’Sunlit has run their events especially the household name of Consumer Fair.

Despite using the same formula over and over again, it didn’t seem to bother the crowd’s interests as thousands flocked in especially during the weekends. I didn’t buy anything at all apart from the orange juice from @oj2go.bn. The multipurpose was not used as I heard it underwent renovation.

In terms of businesses, I believed a lot of vendors benefited from the Consumer Fair despite a slower start in the week. Brunei Halal shared how business was better than the previous one last year. One of the cosmetic vendors ran out of stock on their products on the final day.

This year the theme for the Consumer Fair carried the theme “The Year is Yours. What will you do with it?” Both Yayasan Kanser Kanak-Kanak (YASKA) and the Brunei Darussalam National Association of the Blind (BDNAB) received donations that had been raised during the 19th Consumer Fair. Both NGOs received donations from Jackson Ting, the Managing Director of D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd.

There was also the prize presentation for the Grand Lucky Draw where the grand winner walked away with BND 2,388 cash prize. The prizes were sponsored by D’Sunlit Sdn Bhd and DST Communications Sdn Bhd.

The event organiser would like to thank the government for the continuous support and also to the vendors, exhibitors, activity partners and most important the crowd.

The next Consumer Fair the 20th edition will be on 26th to 30th July 2017 at the same venue, International Convention Centre.
