The Tatt Awards 2012 event, a night of glam rock fashion, fabulous food and the best music provided by the country's premier bands, ushered in the World Social Media and is undoubtedly the highlight of the Social Media Day in the Philippines!

The digital sphere has evolved tremendously and Tattoo will always be supportive of the remarkable achievements of our digital rock stars," says Dong Ronquillo, Globe Head of Tattoo Nomadic Broadband Business.

He further revealed that Tattoo will be embarking on a special corporate social responsibility project called Cat@lyst.
