Globe Telecom, through its mass market brand TM, maintained its strong presence in regional festivities and celebrations with its support and participation in the recent Rodeo Festival in Masbate, the Home of Philippine Rodeo.

The Rodeo Festival 2013 is a 2-week action-packed event that featured unique competitions in the National Rodeo Finals showcasing daily ranch activities like bull riding, bull whipping, cattle lassoing wrestle tie-down and cattle drive, and herding competitions. Thirty-six (36) teams competed in the finals with teams coming from as far north as Benguet down to Cagayan de Oro.  

Other events in the two-week festivities included the parade of western decorated floats and establishments, beef cooking contest, calesa ride and ranch tour, and the search for Mr. and Ms. Rodeo Philippines.

At the Rodeo Festival, TM showcased its TM Combo10 offer, which provides subscribers with unlimited texts and 10-minute calls to Globe/TM and 50 texts to all networks for only P10 valid for 1 day, as well as its TM EXTEND offer which extends the validity of a TM promo for another day for only P5.

TM also treated visitors and local residents to exclusive discounts, such as the marked-down TM SIM available for only P20 instead of P30. The discounted SIM was also bundled with free two days of all-network texts and additional P10 load. TM also dressed up the event with branded banderitas, making it more festive, celebratory, and fun.

“We are happy to support the Rodeo Festival as part of our strategy to strengthen regional visibility with our ‘Astig’ product portfolio,” says Issa Cabreira, TM Head. “Our subscribers can definitely expect more innovations, event partnerships, and value-for-money promos from Globe Telecom’s astig brand.” To register to TM Combo10, text COMBO10 or C10 to 8888. To extend a promo to an additional day, text EXTEND to 8888.

The 20th Rodeo Festival was founded by the Rodeo Masbateno Inc. (RMI), the only ranchers association in Masbate.  According to RMI president Judge Manuel Sese, the Rodeo Festival 2013 is among the most successful staging of the Festival in its two decades of existence. As one of its major undertakings, RMI is geared on establishing the first Rodeo Academy in Asia.
