B2.0 2012 @ Wisma Bandaraya
B2.0 is an annual gathering for bloggers and social media enthusiasts in Borneo Island, and the recently concluded 2012 edition was the third of such gathering, which was held at Wisma Bandaraya, Kota Kinabalu.
Event held at Wisma Bandaraya - 13th Floor
Among the invited speakers were prominent social media players of the industry, such as @KKcity (needs very little introduction), @thanislim (foodie extraordinaire from Brunei and regular Breeze magazine contributor), Murphy Ng (MySabah.com, and Sabah Tourism Board's IT assistant manager), Muhammad Reeda (anakbrunei.org), Team Sprocket (a team of game developers based in KK), FPS (Film Production of Sabah, famed for Sabah Hakka Style video parody), and Grim Film (a video production team whose work on youtube has garnered a huge following that it was featured in Germany's annual short film festival). And lastly, Everydayfoodilove was also there to impart some knowledge.
It was a very useful platform where technical know-how, tips and tricks were shared. Questions were asked by the audiences and a very mature discussion ensued. It was an must attend event for any new media or social media enthusiast. There were even visitors all the way from Hawaii who attended this event, and was also one of the most vocal participant to liven up the discussion.
Attendees were also treated to free hands on trial to the various Windows 8 gadgetry, as well as a guest speaker from Acer to showcase all the nifty tips and tricks of the latest OS from Microsoft. Even Digi came to give us a short lesson on branding and marketing, which all the audiences absorbed like a sponge.
For active bloggers, it was also a treat to have Nuffnang to speak about their latest app as well as how this advertising platform can help further the cause of bloggers.
Not to mention the meals that was so deliciously prepared by Bella, to ensure that all the attendees had their stomach filled.
Kudos to Borneo Colors and ME Malaysia for organizing such a wonderful event, which was sponsored by Digi, Acer and Windows 8, and supported by Tourism of Resource Development and I.T, Creative Lasso, Nuffnang, Bombers Burger, Canon and Imperial Boutec Hotel.
