Interviewer: WEGAME 5.0 (WEGAME)
Respondent: Representative of Vodafone (Vodafone)
WEGAME: Tell us about the activity of your stand during two days. How did you surprise attendees?
On the first day, we held a cosplay contest: we equipped a unique photo zone where each guest was able to take a 3D photo. Thus, people were able to participate in Vodafone Cosplay with the main prize – Samsung Galaxy J6 +. Those photos were immediately published on our Facebook page. In two days, 50 spectacular cosplayers registered to the content; a fairly large number, although far from everyone visiting the festival.
we conducted an eSports car racing tournament, Asphalt Speed Racing 3D, on ASUS ROG Phones. There was a gift drawing: an all-prize lottery available to all guests. All of them received branded promotional merchandise by Vodafone.
WEGAME: How did you test the difference between 4G and 5G? What was the result?
As of today, Ukraine is one of the top ten countries implementing 5G projects. 5G‘s key features are the very fast Internet and the short delay, which opens enormous development prospects for the Internet of Things, allows to have fun comfortably and play with the speed substantially exceeding 4G.
part of WEGAME 5.0, our stand presented all benefits of the new standard, namely: to compare the difference between 4G and 5G speeds in practice, visitors of our stand played virtual table tennis and appreciated the capacity of both communication technologies.
tennis is an illustrative example, as it is the rapid game and agile sports. At the 4G speed, the ball showed interrupted movements fixed in 40-80 milliseconds. As to the 5G speed, we saw ball movements every 3 milliseconds, thus the game was awesome, user-friendly, and wonderful. By the way, 5G allowed to win easier.
WEGAME: What do you think of WEGAME 5.0? What did you like the most?
Vodafone: The audience was friendly and open to contacts: it consisted of young people interested in a great deal of things and desiring to try all of them. People felt at home at our stand. They had fun, relaxed, and played. We are delighted with the activity of attendees. Hope they are happy as well. The festival is excellent and incredible!
