Following their participation at EIBTM 2012, Pacific World (www.pacificworld.com) the leading MICE* player headquartered in Asia, has confirmed increased global demand and support for expansion with 472 pre-scheduled appointments taking place on their exhibition stand over the course of the three day exhibition.
Herve JOSEPH-ANTOINE, Global Managing Director, Pacific World commented, Following our launch as a global agency at EIBTM 2011, we have seen a substantial increase in demand from many of the markets which we already operate in. We are also keen to develop our global presence and we are making new additions to our portfolio including France, Monaco, Dubai, Italy and England for 2013. The launch of these new destinations was received very well at EIBTM this year and was reflected in the number of requests for proposals we received at the show.
In order to facilitate these expansion plans in Europe and Asia, rather than acquiring other DMCs, we are recruiting some of the best talent in the industry. This has resulted in an expanded senior management team with an excellent track record and a shared passion to always be our customers DMC of choice, JOSEPH-ANTOINE continues.
Pacific World also confirmed business leads in key source markets including Brazil, Australia, Nordic, France, Germany, Russia, South Africa, UK, USA and Spain.
In addition to this, Pacific World hosted a networking event, Wake Up your Senses where all attendees were invited to experiment with various sensations through gastronomy and music. The event was a success with over 100 Hosted Buyers and key partners attending to participate in gastronomic perception games.
EIBTM is a key event in the calendar for us. It is not only about doing business for us, its more than that. The exhibition creates an opportunity for us to not only to gain new clients, but to strengthen relationships with our existing customers and key partners. It was an important time to discuss and close requests for meetings, incentives and events that were already under discussion, JOSEPH-ANTOINE concludes.
Following their worldwide rebranding in November last year, Pacific World as a global brand is recognised for delivering operational excellence, creativity and best-in-class customer service across the world. Through working closely with local governments and convention centres, the agency currently delivers event solutions in more than 15 countries including Spain, Portugal, Greece, Scotland, China, India, Hong Kong, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia among others.
