Demonstrating Huawei’s commitment to put customers at the core of what the company does, Huawei ‘Ascend to New Heights’, a large-scale global consumer marketing campaign, was rolled out in 45 countries. The campaign created significant buzz amongst consumers and boosted its brand awareness to a new high.

At Huawei, we continue to focus on building one of the world’s favourite consumer brands, and on making sure that our consumers enjoy the best experience possible.

The ‘Ascend to New Heights’ campaign began on November 12, 2012 and concludes today with a gala dinner hosted by Huawei Device in the super-five-star Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai for the grand prize winners, who hailed from countries as far and wide as South Africa, Italy, Norway, Indonesia, Poland and Mexico.
