The Asia Pacific ICT Awards 2011 – The pre awards night update

3 mins read

We are finally here.

As the sun sets on 11th November 2011 at the Dusit Thani in Pattaya Thailand, team Pakistan gets ready to receive its score card on a team effort that started last year at the close of the Awards night in Kula Lumpur Malaysia in 2010. Every year after the awards night three to four P@SHA APICTA Awards advisors and judges get together to determine what we did right and where we missed out.

We surprised ourselves and our well wishers and partners at APICTA last year with our tally of seven silvers. It was an exhilarating moment hearing the name of Pakistan being called out at the Kula Lumpur Convention Center last year with the cream of the technology community from the Asia Pacific region.

Let’s see what tonight’s score card looks like.

Here is the list of categories in which we presented, our presenters, our products and their companies. This group flew our flag high, competing with 160 nominations from 12 economies. A final 72 hour push involved 6 mentors and advisors working till late at night with nominees from Pakistan polishing pitches, suggesting tweaks and helping with delivery. The push started with the arrival of the Judges at the Dusit Thani on 8th November.

A group 50 plus qualified and distinguished APICTA judges heard pitches starting from 8:30 am till 5:30 pm for two days running followed by a final round of approval and validation of results on the morning of the third day.
