Asia: Events Travel Asia Sets up Shop in HK, Singapore
Defying the pall cast over Thailand's MICE scene due to political unrest this year, Bangkok-based Events Travel Asia (ETA) is expanding its business and opening offices in Singapore and Hong Kong to gain greater market share.
At the helm of ETA is group managing director Max Jantasuwan, an events and hospitality professional with over 14 years of experience.
“The opening of our Hong Kong and Singapore offices were earlier than expected, and it is with thanks to the market demand and unceasing support of our clients, associates, and industry colleagues that motivated us to take this bold step just after 18 months of starting ETA,” said Jantasuwan.
In response to the political situation at home, ETA has looked beyond Thailand for business. The company has seen a 6,500-pax delegation from Herbalife hold an event in Macau in September, and recently held an 80-delegate Golf tournament in Taiwan last month. This is in addition to the more than 90 groups that the company managed in Thailand in 2014.
