Hey there, Nuffnangers!

Last Wednesday, March 11,2015 in Hyve, Vista Residences, one of the leading condominium developers in the country recently launched five more towers. These towers are strategically placed near universities, giving the term “University Town” a vertical approach. The towers will provide study halls and common areas that promote a student community. With the new projects’ convenient location, it is easier for students to live their scholarly lives. The condominiums are packed with amenities perfectly fit for the student lifestyle!

Student Living Redefined
Vista Residences launched five new towers – Vista GL Taft, Vista heights in Legarda, Vista Brenthill Baguio, Vista Katipunan and Vista Recto. Each condominium has an E-Library, fitness center, swimming pool, roof deck, and multi-purpose function rooms for hosting parties, other social events, and school meetings/study groups. The towers are also eco-friendly. Each building takes full advantage of its solar panels. This helps lessen the condominiums’ carbon footprint. Eventually, Vista Residences hope that these solar panels will supply to more of the tower’s electrical needs. The units are tailor-fitted to the student needs, giving them a better experience compared to a normal dormitory.

Manila, Philippines – Last February 21, what used to be a yearly tradition of learning from some of the well-known bloggers and social media influencers in the country also became a venue that gathered hundreds and hundreds of netizens (from bloggers and brands to social media participants) who wished to celebrate their platforms, blogs and online existence. On its third year, Blogopolis left another mark in the country’s digital world by bringing in a lineup of speakers who are highly respected in their own fields of excellence, and who progressively take part in the revolutionary digital shift in the Philippines – hence coming up with this year’s event title “Blogopolis: Shifting Gears”.

Blogopolis: Shifting Gears aimed to produce the best learning experience for all the attendees about the new online trends that make noise, as well as strategies and perspectives to establish a more solid positioning and further growth in the blogosphere and digital world whilst shifting their reach and social media capabilities to higher grounds. Guess what – it just did!

It was around 1:00 AM when suppliers started bringing in the equipment and installing the plenary set-up at the Mayuree Grand Ballroom of Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati. It made us in Nuffnang Philippines feel very, very excited! We were like, Ahh, it’s the time of the year again! Some of us barely had enough sleep because it’s either the need to attend to last-minute preparations OR it was the feeling of much excitement that didn’t let us sleep.

01-Setup

As early as 11:30 AM, attendees started registering at the Nuffnang Hub, and our sponsors’ booths started making noise and implementing their own gimmicks to produce engagement to the attendees as they come in the foyer area of the venue.

There was a Blogging Hub that we installed so that for those who wished to blog or update their social media accounts during the event but forgot to bring their laptops, they can use the laptops provided by Acer. There was also a Social Lounge where the latest models of ASUS smartphones and tablets were displayed so that our attendees can update their social media accounts, as well as meet new friends.

The ballroom gates opened at 1:00 PM. The attendees then rushed to the inside of the ballroom and spotted their own seats for a good view of the day’s plenary sessions.

At 1:15 PM, our hosts Justin Quirino of 99.5 Play FM and TV Host Karla Aguas officially opened the plenary program by welcoming the attendees and introducing the first segment.

Segment 1 is entitled Movement: Social Relevance, which is about promoting social change with one’s digital influence. In this segment are speakers Ivan Henares, Hon. Senator Bam Aquino, Pepper.ph’s Mikka Wee and Meya Cortez, and Gang Badoy of Rock Ed Philippines.

After Segment 1′s panel discussion was guest speaker Jeffrey Mariano representing one of our generous partners, Acer Smartphones.

Segment 2 is entitled Machinery: Content Shift, which focused on exploring possible niches for one’s blog and social media platforms. In this segment are speakers Abe Olandres of Yugatech, Josh Villanueva, Jeff Lo, and Jackie Go.

After Segment 2′s panel discussion at around 3:00 PM, the hosts finally declared the Kit Kat Break! All the Nuffies roamed around and gave out a number of Kit Kat bars to everyone inside the plenary hall! Everyone truly deserved that scrumptious break! Thanks, Kit Kat!

break2 break1

After the break, the hosts announced a surprise game sponsored by Security Bank! Before the plenary sessions started, there were five (5) strips of Security Bank-branded papers that were sticked under random chairs. Our lucky attendees whose seats had the strips underneath each won bank credits courtesy of Security Bank! We’re so jealouuuussss HAHAHA!

The game was followed by another set of guest speakers – the one and only Mr. Joaquin Valdes of Berto in Brogues, and one of our generous partners, ASUS Philippines, represented by Lawrence Munsayac and Gabriel Padit!

Segment 3 is entitled Accessory: Social Marketing, which zeroed in on social media as a tool for blogs and brands to reach out to one’s audience or market. In this segment are speakers from Globe, Tippy and Pong Go of Googly Gooeys, Revo Naval, and Jim Paredes.

segment3a segment3b segment3c segment3d segment3e

After Segment 3′s panel discussion, it was time to break some ice and take a breather from the serious but engaging learnings. Zomato had their own version of “Hep Hep Hooray” on stage and we can say that the participants really had lots of fun!

game1 game2 game3

The last segment, Segment 4, is entitled Armory: News Online, which focused on using social media as a source of headlines and as an avenue for political participation. In this segment are speakers Stacy de Jesus of Rappler and Tony Velasquez of ABS-CBN.

All the speakers for the day were done! It was the time then for a photo op with the speakers who stayed until the end of the event, plus Nuffnang’s Country Manager Abe Olandres and this year’s Project Heads Clei Salvador and Jamon Martin.

Before we ended the plenary program, a raffle was done on stage and host Karla Aguas announced two winners – one winner of a Fujifilm Instax camera from Pound It, and another winner of a wireless 1TB passport from WD Philippines.
