Filipino Student Marketeers together in one place , coming from different state
universities and colleges here in the Philippines. (Kudos to the students from the North, Visayas and Mindanao)
It was to my surprise as I arrived at MOA-SMX, the massive

understand how difficult it was for the organizers and the security to handle

tackle are very interesting, there was never a dull moment- Presentation pa lang, already grabbed my
attention. Wished I finished the event but had other blogger commitments
that fell on the same day.
