Ronald Liem, Publisher of DestinAsian Media Group, invited high society’s who’s who to join him in celebrating the media group’s 15th anniversary. The media group started off with luxury travel magazine DestinAsian in 2001. Distributed around Asia Pacific, the magazine is now an award-winning title that made way for DestinAsian Indonesia (2013). Prestige was born in 2004, and has since become Indonesia’s most revered title in luxury lifestyle. The media group also publishes DAMan, a leading men’s lifestyle magazine and Joy, a publication for young women who believe in the power of positive attitude.
The 15th Anniversary DestinAsian Media Group Gala took place at the newly reopened Four Seasons Jakarta, at Capital Building, on Thursday, October 27. The Four Seasons holds a special place as the venue of numerous Prestige galas.
Upon arrival at the foyer of the ballroom, more than 500 guests dressed according to the evening glamour dress code, were welcomed with a red carpet and a photo wall, where photographers and videographers were ready to capture them in their stunning attires, conduct interviews and invite them to pose in a special video corner.
The incoming guests turned into photographers themselves as they took selfies with the night’s guests of honour: former World Cup Soccer star Hidetoshi Nakata and top model Garrett Neff. Ronald himself greeted guests at the end of the red carpet, graciously receiving congratulatory notes from friends of the company.
