Singapore (30th March, 2016) — ASUS was honored with a Channel NewsAsia Innovation Luminary Award at a ceremony held today at The Fullerton Hotel in Singapore. Awarded to companies headquartered in Asia that demonstrate excellence in innovation, the prestigious Channel NewsAsia Innovation Luminary Award underscores the ASUS commitment to creating breakthrough technology and providing incredible experiences to consumers.
"I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Channel NewsAsia and the jury panel for honoring ASUS with the prestigious Innovation Luminary Award," said ASUS APAC General Manager Rex Lee, who received the award on behalf of the company.

ASUS followed this success in 2011 with the introduction of Transformer Book, the world's first 2-in-1 laptop and tablet. In 2014, the company launched ZenFone, a series of smartphones that bring all-around performance and empowering luxury to consumers. ASUS makes the world’s best-selling motherboards and, according to IDC, is the No. 1 consumer notebook brand in the Asia/Pacific (excluding China and Japan) region.
