The 22nd instalment of CTW APAC at Bangkok next week will feature greater opportunities for buyer and seller connections, which has been instrumental in securing new buyers from high profile companies such as Citigroup Inc. and Ferrari.
One of the new features at the two-day conference is an interactive ice-breaker, Say Hi to Everyone, helmed by MICE strategist and hospitality consultant David Barrett. It allows delegates to identify profiles and network ahead of the show days.
Another new element of CTW APAC is Meet-The-Corporates, delivered in a speed-dating format over two single-hour sessions across two days. Through this, CTW corporate travel/procurement professionals can meet IT&CM Asia exhibitors from Dubai, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and more.
For delegates hoping to learn how Thailand can support corporate travellers, the Corporate Exchange, Exclusively Thailand is the perfect platform. Held in partnership with Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, the session will feature up to 48 Thai suppliers in a close-knit yet engaging arrangement.
In a press statement released by TTG Asia Media, organiser of the event, these new initiatives have not only secured attendance of long-time corporate buyers of the show but also attracted new ones from major global companies such as Citigroup Inc., Ferrari, Huawei, IBM, and LVMH Asia Pacific.
