Another promo was for every purchase of Fila Accolade Lite, customers will have a one-time P2,000 off voucher when they buy a Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro.
Cris Albert, FILA Philippines’ owner and CEO, the woman who has led FILA Philippines into a successful and well-known brand, Butch Albert, FILA Philippines’ chairman, Eric Yu, Cloudfone’s president, attended the said event. Angel Dei, blogger/influencer, and one of Fila’s newest ambassadors, was one of the attendees as well.
Antonio Aguirre Jr., FILA Philippines’ Creative Consultant, asked Cris Albert and Eric Yu as to why they agreed to partner with each other’s brand.
“I believe that the phone (Cloudfone) represents the shoes a lot. And our shoe, the Accolade Lite, is all about technology. I think it’s cool to combine lifestyle and technology together.” Cris says. “Aside from that, Eric is my good friend,” she added.
“At Cloudfone, we believe in partnership also. Our business started with a partnership with Globe telecom. Cloudfone was the very first affordable smartphone in the Globe lineup.” Eric says. “And since then, we’ve collabored with other brands like NBA, Disney, Spotify, Microsoft, all these big brands, and FILA, most importantly,” he added.
Eric Yu also presented the grand prize, which was the Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro.
“The Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro has an infinite screen, one of the biggest screen in the market. Screen to phone ratio is 91%.” Eric says.
Winners were able to attend the awarding party despite the heavy rains, some of which came from different provinces, but everyone arrived smiling and excited about claiming their prizes.
