ZenFestival 2015 – Davao Zenfone Fans Gathering

The ZenFestival in Davao City was another event held by ASUS as an appreciation and thanks to the ZenFone fans. Here’s what went on.

They usually have these kinds of events quarterly and the latest was last September 26, 2015 at Rekado Davao located at Jacinto Extension St.

Besides the delicious food from Rekado Davao, we were treated with an open forum where we discussed how to maximize our ZenFone experience. The various tips, tricks, tutorials, and Q&A was very informative. ZenTalk was also promoted during the event. It is a technical forum to learn, share, and exchange information about their products. It is also a place to meet and mingle with other Zen Fans.
