So, what happened on Day 1 of V-Malaysia 2011?

As the first day of V-Con, it’s a tradition that IRs come dressed in their national costumes. This year didn’t disappoint, with all the costumes of the world being seen! This is a great opportunity to learn about other cultures, with IRs from all over the world coming to join this event!

Throughout the day, our enthusiastic IRs sang and danced and cheered… The atmosphere was simply electrifying!!

The QNet Product Pavilion was unveiled to IRs in the morning while registration saw thousands of IRs signing up for the SIX-day mega convention! In the QNet Pavilion, IRs can shop, talk to our well-trained staff who have the best knowledge in the QNet’s wide range of products… Including the new brands and products being launched at V-Con this year! Plus, there are some exciting interactive sporting action happening at the QNet Sports Sponsorships booth – foosball table football, golf and even a sports Play Station area! And of course, our very own Marussia Virgin Racing Formula One car had !

Time flies when we’re having a good time and this is what happened to us today. Before we knew it, it was time for the official QNet Pavilion ribbon-cutting ceremony, officiated by QNet Managing Director, Mr JR Mayer, VPartner and QI Director Mr TG Kintanar, and QI Director Mr Joachim Steffen! The crowd had to be held back!
