The Force was Strong at Wild Digital Indonesia

We had great success with our first Wild Digital conference in Jakarta a few weeks ago. There was much buzz and talk about the incredible runway ahead in Indonesia’s tech landscape and its clearer than ever that we are only just scratching the surface of its massive potential. Although its not surprising more and more foreign investors are taking an active interest in Indonesia, we were still not expecting special visitors from a galaxy far, far away…
 
Luckily, an angry Darth Vader and an army of Storm Troopers were soon pacified when we showcased iflix’s new Star Wars dedicated channel. All you Jedi (or Sith) fans out there can now binge watch the first six Star Wars instalments on iflix from any device of your choice. In the wise words of Master Yoda – Do, or do not. There is no try.
 
Its hard to believe that this will be our last newsletter for 2017 – the year has totally flown by and I can't help but be proud of all that’s happened this year. 
 
Its been a crazy busy 2017 so, I’m definitely looking forward to the holiday season and having a massive year end celebration with the Catcha family. 
 
On that note, I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year in advance – I hope you take time off to celebrate the success of the past year, reflect on the lessons learned and get recharged for what 2018 has to offer!
