What are you hoping to accomplish through this event?

  1. Enhancing Engagement of Doodles Holders in the Asian Region: Through this initiative, we strive to bolster the sense of involvement and participation among Doodles holders in the Asian region. By creating an exciting and immersive experience, we intend to connect Doodles enthusiasts on a deeper level and strengthen their bond with the Doodles community.

2.Showcasing Doodles' Vibe to the Wider NFT Community During Apefest: Capitalizing on the prime opportunity presented by Apefest, which gathers the largest congregation of NFT enthusiasts, our goal is to radiate the captivating ambiance of Doodles to a broader spectrum of the NFT community. By weaving the distinctive essence of Doodles into this event, we aim to leave a lasting impression and introduce its allure to an expansive audience.

3.Crafting an Unconventional Event Experience Through Roller Skating: Differentiating itself from conventional meet-and-greet sessions, this event will provide an exceptional encounter through the medium of Roller Skating. By orchestrating a roller skating experience with Doodles-themed embellishments, we aspire to deliver a dynamic and novel interaction for participants. This innovative approach transcends mere conversation, allowing attendees to tangibly feel the spirit of Doodles while engaging in an exhilarating physical activity.

Potential revenue sources: Admission fees for participants other than doodles og holders, on-site sales of official doodles merchs, etc. (can be discussed)

What is the marketing and promotional plan to generate demand for the event? As the largest nft event in the world, Apefest will then be held in Hong Kong, which will be a travel destination for many doodles holders, in addition to many other crowds from the nft community. This event will be publicized through the momentum of apefest. Setting it the day before apefest opens will maximize the appeal to nft holders who arrive in Hong Kong early.

Hong Kong has announced a series of policies conducive to the development of blockchain, and with a large number of people interested in nft in a land where the blockchain industry is booming, Hong Kong is poised to become the center of blockchain in Asia in the future. Our team member cupcat has very rich community resources, the event will focus on publicizing in Hong Kong's local telegram community to increase attendance.

As the location of the crossroads of Chinese and Western cultures, Hong Kong's culture has long spread across the globe, and it is a city that is friendly to people of all nationalities. Hong Kong is already one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Project Lead Additional Remarks

I was well prepared for this event.

It has been largely coordinated with the venue. And I have sketches of the venue's decorations ready for the community council to view.

As Hong Kong is a small city with a high cost of living, I hope that the community council will consider raising the budget limit so that the event can be held smoothly.

I am open to any ideas that will help the event run smoothly, for example, ways to sell tickets and merchs as income to ease the pressure on the community banks.

Standing on the shoulders of giants is very helpful. That's why I chose to organize this event at apefest Hong Kong. Apefest comes with a huge NFT crowd flow that can host a truly global gathering of doodles holders at the best value for money.
