The ASEAN Costumes Contest was held by District 1 Union in HCMC on March 4th, 2016, as part of the International Women’s Day (March 8th) celebration and the anniversary of ASEAN’s establishment. The contest took place on the Sen Hong stage of District 1, HCMC and attracted 23 union units all over District 1.
It was the first time Cushman & Wakefield had participated in this contest, and it was also the only company competing against 22 occupational and administrative entities. However, Cushman & Wakefield excellently won second place with its showcase of Singaporean costumes.
Despite the time constraint that didn’t allow much room for preparation and practice, Cushman & Wakefield was very committed and was commended for their unique performance -using technology (a video) to introduce the country, the people and the culture of Singapore before hitting the stage, and performing with music and a video zooming in on the costumes on a huge Led screen so that the whole audience could follow.
Winning the second place in this contest not only brought a lot of pride but also beautiful memories to Cushman & Wakefield members. This contest was also an opportunity to strengthen the camaraderie and discover new talents among our staff.
