The first WebTVAsia Awards recently took place at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre on 23 October, presenting more than 30 awards with participation from 12 nations in Asia.

Curated by Prodigee Media, the company’s founder and CEO, Fred Chong has revealed to TheHive.Asia that he plans on doing the second WebTVAsia Awards next year in Bangkok, Thailand.

Hoping that the awards ceremony will be an annual event, Fred also mentioned that since WebTVAsia has four different offices in four Asian regions – Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, he hopes to hold the event at each of the region the following years.

WebTVAsia Awards 2015 ended with a blast last Friday, though Fred admits that the event might have overrun a bit, he is happy with the result of the whole event.

“I’m very excited because my team did it, it’s a big team effort and it’s a Malaysian company initiative. It’s very difficult to coordinate and run an event like this with 12 different countries. So, I’m glad that we managed to pull it off!” he added.
