    Maybe you could hold a Nokia event such as a launch of new units (such as the N8 and C6) and ask the contestants to use their Ovi map to lead them to the event here, in Baguio City, High Point Inn has a large greenhouse/function hall, a restaurant, cafe, a gazebo, and luxurious rooms to accommodate such an event. Just a thought. ^_^ Do you need any consumer product testers? Just another thought.. ^_^
