LAS VEGAS, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Thwapr, Inc. (OTCBB: THWI), a mobile video sharing company, will be showcasing its proprietary mobile video sharing platform in a high profile event in Asia – The SME1 Asia Awards 2012.
This exclusive by-invitation-only event is attended by the CEOs of successful Asian companies, industry leaders and government officials from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Korea, Thailand, Myanmar, and China. This elite event recognizes and rewards successful Small and Medium Enterprises in the region that contribute to the development of people, society and the environment.
Thwapr, Shyalala and Dalrus Pte Ltd have created a mobile solution for the upcoming SME1 Asia Awards. Thwapr will enable SME1 to notify each winning company's CEO in a more innovative and personal manner by using their mobile phones. They can then send and share the video messages with their peers while facilitating more information about the next upcoming SME1 activity. Unlike most passive video messages, Thwapr's patent-pending technology will integrate call-to-action features with dynamic backend functions as part of the sharing interaction.
"We are taking a different approach to establish our Enterprise presence in Asia. We have decided to introduce our technology and capabilities directly to the decision makers of successful corporations across the Asian region. We are pleased to be given this notable opportunity to take our first steps into Asia," said Ron Singh, CEO of Thwapr Inc.
"Thwapr's technology will add an innovative twist to the event. We hope to incorporate Thwapr's interactive mobile video sharing function in our other events across Asia," expressed Juat Mauy Koh, CEO of SME1 Asia Awards, a subsidiary of the APF Group.
