MANILA – In the last decade, we have seen gadgets transform from functional tools to personal devices that reflect one’s passion and imagination. Sony has always believed that gadgets go beyond function, they also serve as canvasses to express one’s creativity and deliver one-of-a-kind experiences that enhance lives. With this in mind, Sony Philippines hosts its inaugural Sony Fair, a ten-day event that features interactive displays, community activities, and workshops that will enable customers to envision the way Sony devices can fuel their lifestyle.
“For the last 70 years, Sony Corporation has continuously delivered products and technologies that bring unique experiences to our customers. We are a company that works to inspire and fulfill people’s curiosity, and our Sony Fair demonstrates this. By showcasing some of our flagship products, we invite everyone to experience the superiority of our technologies and the many ways they enhance our lives," said Mr. Nobuyoshi Otake, President and Managing Director, Sony Philippines.
The event, which runs until December 18, will bring together some of Sony’s flagship products in the spaces of mobile, digital imaging, home entertainment, personal audio, and gaming for customers to enjoy.
