Our responsible in APAC, David Ezquerro, was in Singapore last week attending ITB Asia, Asia’s leading travel trade show.
Held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, the three-day conference and exhibition recorded an impressive 25,000 business appointments this year. Having hosted more than 1,000 exhibitors and over 1,000 buyers this year, ITB Asia 2018 had also recorded an increase of 8.9% of total visitors representing more than 127 countries from last year’s anniversary event.
“ITB Asia is the perfect venue in our effort to expand Roiback’s role in the APAC business region,” commented David. “I had the chance to meet with a lot of our key partners in the region and I was able to express our commitment to increase their direct bookings with our existing hotels.”
Also, in a parallel event, David attended HospitalityUnited.Club, a consortium of travel technology companies, bringing once again their classic Cocktails and Conversations event to Singapore. The club hosted an exclusive evening for hoteliers, in partnership with HotelsCombined, LiveOS, RateTiger, Roiback and Triptease
The high energy networking event brought together hotels and tech providers in an informal relaxed setting at Lavo, Marina Bay Sands, to explore innovative technology and exchange new ideas.
“Honestly, we couldn’t find a better place to have a chat while enjoying great company in Singapore. We are delighted to be a co-partner in this Hospitality United Club event and excited to showcase hoteliers and leaders in the industry our award-winning solutions to power direct sales“, said David about last week’s successful event.
