What is MAC? If you are thinking about McDonalds or Apple MacBook, then you are wrong! MAC is a manufacturer of cosmetics that was found in 1984 by Frank Toskan(Left) and Frank Angelo(Right).
MAC is a well known cosmetics brand and is sold worldwide. Many may not know that MAC actually means "Makeup Artist Cosmetics". They provide a range of varieties of products for the everyday consumer which includes eye shadows , lipsticks, lip-gloss, foundations, concealer, nail polish, mascara and many more.
As MAC is a well know and popular brand, we are very excited that they are coming to NYP to held this event, specially the ladies in the team! We are also thrill to hear that there will be up to 50% off all products! Girls, prepare your wallet with cash cause... IT'S SHOPPING TIME!! But before that, we need to prepare to set up the events area first!
Preparation - 21st April 2014
One day before the event, our supervisor, Mr Sudesh, brought us down to the atrium where the event will be held to inspect the area. We took note of where all the power sockets are and also estimated where the tables will be placed.
We helped MAC to deposit and sort out the products one day before the event.
The guys are helping out even though they are not familiar with cosmetics!
Our guys are clueless but they still did it! *Clap Clap*
On the day of the event - 22nd April 2014
On the day of the event, EMRS crew reported at 7:30A.M to set up the area. Some of us even woke up at 5A.M! We moved the logistic from logs room to the atrium. Thank god we have macho guys in our team!

To end off, IT WAS HUGE SUCCESS!
As this was our first event after joining EMRS for a short 1 week, we were unsure about the program flow and we faced some problems. Though throughout the event, it was really hectic and busy but we managed to pull through with the help of each other.
What's the best way to learn other than getting first hand experience? Through this event, we learnt how to deal with vendors and train on our critical thinking skills when a problem arises. Other than that, we learnt that we need proper planning for the event to ensure smooth execution. We also learnt to think out of the box in search for ways to market MAC and control the traffic flow. Through this event we actually learnt the way each member work and what are their strong points.
Overall, we learnt lots and will be more prepared for our next event! Cheers EMRS! Lets work hard together!
