PETALING JAYA, Monday (Aug 3, 2020) — Raise your trophies, everyone, let’s toast to your brand success, goes the resounding cry after each round of awards presentations.

The virtual award presentation was featured “live” on from 8-9pm and attracted more than10,000 viewers.

Unlike the usual gala dinner held at hotel ballrooms — going virtual makes the award borderless so that everyone can tune in and celebrate with the awardees.

Led by the World President DrKKJohan and his creative team, the e-Branding awards marks a new milestone for the foundation.

During his speech, DrKKJohan said: “Tonight is a special night as The BrandLaureate has organized its first e-Branding Awards

“Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, many big and small companies have closed, downsized, or filed for bankruptcy.

Therefore the never-give-up spirit is vital for brands during these trying times, and we at The BrandLaureate would like to honor these brands for their achievements.

The BrandLaureate e-Branding awards were presented to several prominent local personalities who have made the news recently for their remarkable achievements and contributions.
