Last April 8 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the top social media influencers across seven countries gathered to celebrate Influence Asia 2017, the continent's largest social media awards show.
"The theme for Influence Asia 2017 is 'For The Future,' with the brand promise as 'Creating Tomorrow’s Positive Influence.' The future generations of today and tomorrow read and watch a lot of the content influencers create. We want our nominees to appreciate and recognize this huge responsibility that they hold over future generations. Influence Asia serves as a platform to uphold standards and celebrate individual and group efforts in creating strong and positive content for the future,” shares Althea Lim, Executive Producer of Influence Asia 2017.
