Epson Philippines Unveils New Innovative Products at Fusion 7 in Siargao

Last May 19 to 21, 2016, the beautiful island of Siargao in Mindanao - a world-renowned surfers' paradise - became the venue for the formal announcement of Epson Philippines' sterling new devices this year.

The unveiling was held via Epson Fusion 7, which also offered an opportunity for tech bloggers and members of the media to bond with each other and with Team Epson. (Kindly check @techpinas on Instagram as well as my personal Facebook account for some photos that I took from this memorable adventure.)

Allow me to give you a quick run-down of all the fresh innovative products that the legendary Japanese electronics company launched at the event.
