The Phone Display area provided for a seamless crowd movement through the zone, giving adequate hands-on experience to every individual.

The design for the PODs had a futuristic touch to it, not only aiding to the sound experience but also reconfirming the exceptional technology that OnePlus 6 was sporting.
The Avenger Zone showcased life-size limited edition figurines of the Avenger Infinity Wars series, which sent waves of excitement through the community.
