The second part of a 4-part exclusive coverage of the party of the year

The glamorous red carpet affair at the 15th Anniversary DestinAsian Media Group Gala continued with a festive cocktail hour. Guests enjoyed canape from Four Seasons Jakarta, accompanied by beverages by Pernod Ricard Indonesia.

Chivas 18 Gold Signature was served at a dedicated bar, a uniquely rich and multi-layered blend created by Master Blender Colin Scott. The highly blend is produced using malt and grain whiskies from distilleries all over Scotland. The guests had a good time catching up with each other while discovering exciting offers by the event’s partners.

The Time Place wowed afficionados with a stunning display of finest watches in the middle of the foyer. The nation’s leading luxury timepieces truly showcased their tagline: “Value, knowledge, choice”, which it has follwed since opening its first boutique in Plaza Senayan in 1999. Since then, The Time Place has opened many boutiques across the country and an overseas boutique at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, as well as providing more than 30 renowned brands to delight connoisseurs.

Dubai Tourism created a glamorous tropical landscape at its booth, showcasing all the allure of the Middle  Eastern destination. As an emerging family destination, Dubai spoils visitors with choices – from shopping and spa to world-class cuisine and thrilling adventure parks.

Offering an answer to urbanites’ housing needs, Verde, a premium development by Farpoint, offers luxury apartments in the heart of the city, with green surroundings that make for a tranquil home. 

Mario Minardi, a family-owned company with deep roots in traditional Italian shoemaking, also supported the gala. Specialising in high quality hand-crafted footwear, Mario Minardi’s expertise lies not only in crafting genuine leather dress shoes, such as classic oxfords and stylish wingtips, but also heavy-duty boots and casual hand-stitched moccasins of various colours and styles.

At 9PM, notable German violinist Dylan Naylor, performed three pieces in the foyer, to loud cheers. His serenade led guests inside the ballroom for the main event.
