Putra Brand Awards 2012


Had the opportunity to attend the Putra Brand Awards 2012 held on 24 April 2012 at the One World Hotel in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya. Organised in association with the Malaysia’s Most Valuable Brands (MMVB), the Putra Brand Awards is a recognition and brand valuation exercise initiated by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Malaysia (4As) to recognise brands that are near and dear to the hearts of Malaysians. While MMVB measures best brands by financial valuation, the Putra Brand Awards measures brands by consumer preference utilising a robust consumer research methodology developed by Pulse Group.

Now this was something of interest to me as you know my job managing MHB (Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers) deals a lot with brands who want publicity without using hard-sell advertisements. In my humble opinion the best publicity is the type where you engage your consumers through awesome experiences or creative content which is interesting and attractive thus creating better brand retention and recollection which (ceteris paribus – all else held equal) should lead to more sales.


I brought along MHB's Naomi Tham as she works in a media agency thus the event was relevant to her too. That's Naomi on the left with our friend Louise Teh.
My table had the lovely Shermayne personally making sure that everyone was well watered
Carlsberg was voted as a Gold winner of the Putra Brand Awards. Adding this prestigious award to their achievements, Carlsberg is the only alcoholic beverage that bagged the Gold Award for three consecutive years, which acknowledges the brand’s leading position in the market. Well done guys! Here I am having a yum seng with the Carlsberg Malaysia team.
Carlsberg Malaysia's MD Soren Ravn proudly showing me, Naomi and Louise his article in the bulletin with Carlsberg Malaysia's Corporate Communications Director Pearl looking on. Soren Ravn, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, said, “Carlsberg’s success as Malaysia’s most preferred beer brand is a result of constant innovation to the brand’s products, packaging, promotions and marketing. Winning Gold for three consecutive years at the coveted Putra Brand Awards, as voted by consumers and endorsed by industry leaders, truly sets Carlsberg apart as the beer of choice. Now that calls for a Carlsberg!”
Lots of eye-candy for me that night
