These delegates to this established 16-year old event are thus highly valued by industry suppliers, including this year’s sponsors.
The sponsorship investment by Abacus International, Travelport and Frasers Hospitality affirms the show’s efficacy in delivering quality Corporate Travel professionals.
What puts CTW Asia-Pacific ahead in its league is its commitment to quality participation. It is the only such event in the region with the largest hosting programme, where 150 hand-picked Corporate Travel Managers from diverse industries across Asia-Pacific are invited to attend each year.
It is such powerful propositions like this that has reeled in the interest of industry suppliers. As the exclusive sponsor of one of the event’s tea-break on 2 October, Joanne Ang, Group Director – Sales and Marketing of Frasers Hospitality shared why CTW Asia-Pacific is a great platform to showcase the Frasers Hospitality brand. “The opportunity to expose our brand to Corporate Travel professionals is one reason why we are thrilled to be a sponsor here. Sponsoring the tea break allows us to reinforce our brand to those who know us, and for those who are not so familiar with our brand, the tea break give us an opportunity to bring the brand alive.”
Dirk Mertens, Corporate Account Director of Travelport, who is sponsoring another tea-break on 2 October also underlines the gains of a CTW Asia-Pacific sponsor. “As a supplier who is serious about reaching Corporate Travel Managers in the Asia-Pacific, it is beneficial to work with an industry event like CTW Asia-Pacific that has specifically tailored its education programme for the region’s community. This makes the discussion of learning industry trends and understanding what is key for buyers in this region much more relevant and valuable. The direct engagement with buyers enables us to validate propositions and make sure we are delivering the solutions our customers need.”
Echoing similar sentiments is Rebecca Daniels, Director – Global Accounts of Abacus International. “This event gives us the added opportunity to showcase our latest corporate productivity solutions to a relevant audience comprising of quality corporate travel decision makers. Through this opportunity, we aim to keep them informed of new tools that will help them improve their business operations and enhance the customer experience.” Abacus International is the sponsor of both the break-out track session on Travel Industry Update and Outlook, as well as the tea-break on 3 October.
