Smart recently held the Smart Move party at the Opus Restaurant and Lounge in Resorts World, Manila. The event was an exclusive gathering for loyal clients and new subscribers that have moved up from their former mobile service providers and have embraced Smart’s “Living More” mantra.
Hosts Marc Nelson and Sarah Meier welcomed guests to the evening’s festivities and asked Smart’s celebrity ambassadors, such as Anne Curtis and Ramon Bautista, to share what they love about being with Smart. They were later joined by Smart’s Executive Vice President and head of the Wireless Consumer Division, Noel Lorenzana. Lorenzana talked about the origins of the award-winning “Live More” campaign of the company’s dependable and top-notch services provided by the network.
“When you’re struggling with your wireless services—a missed call, a late message, slow Internet—you’re losing time that you can’t get back. You’re literally losing a part of your life,” Lorenzana explained. “Now when your provider is able to give you the service you need, service that is both timely and dependable, you also get more time to enjoy life. You actually get to Live More.”
Three special guests also gave their testimony about making the Smart Move. Fashion blogger Ingrid Go of the Bag Hag Diaries, lawyer Rod Nepomuceno of PR firm Big Big Big, and entrepreneur Cristalle Belo-Henares of the Belo Medical Group all talked about their experience with Smart as well, saying that their online experiences have improved with Smart’s reliable wireless service and high-speed Internet connection.
Guests also experienced Smart’s technology firsthand, with demo stations around the area that showcased their blazing fast LTE speeds that are made possible by having four times the fiber power compared to the competition.
A champagne parade soon followed, leading to a toast to Living More by PLDT Chairman Manny V. “MVP” Pangilinan along with Smart’s Chief Wireless Adviser Doy Vea and PLDT Technology Group Head Olan Pena. After MVP and Smart’s top endorsers raised their glasses, everyone at the affair gave their applause for Smart.
The program eventually came to a close, but the party was far from over as DJ Callum David rocked the night away with his set. Some of the many celebrities spotted at the event were celebrity siblings Anne and Jasmine Curtis, Maxene and Elmo Magalona, Rico Blanco, Billy Crawford, Vhong Navarro, Champ Lui Pio, Jinri Park, and Bianca King. Other celebrities that were also at the event included Veronica Mendez, Louie Ysmael, entrepreneurs Piku Uttamchandani, Eric Cua, GP Reyes, designers Nicole Whisenhunt and Martin Bautista, and football stars and siblings Phil and James Younghusband.
The evening was a testament to how subscribing to Smart is a Smart Move, and the inclination to Live More has never been stronger, especially with Smart’s services.
