APOT Perth 2018 has concluded in great style and was a huge success. We welcomed over 100 delegates from almost 20 countries for the Forum.
The outings to the Swan River wineries and food experiences were a great showcase for Western Australia. It was our particular honour to have the Hon Paul Papalia, the Minister for WA for Tourism and other portfolios to speak at our conference together with a great line up of other speakers and panellists.

Full reports of the events and a bigger gallery of pictures will appear here soon – together with an announcement for the next APOT location.

We thank all those who came and our sponsors – in particular, dnata and Perth Inflight Catering who contributed significantly to ensure a successful and fun APOT.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome the launching of Asia Pacific On-board Travel-APOT. Asia.

Korean Air recognizes the importance and high standard of In-flight Service industry in the region, thus we share the hopes and expectations to further improve the industry through APOT. Asia.

Please rest assured that Korean Air will provide full support and commitment for the success of the new organization. We trust that our valued partnership in the region will be enhanced through APOT. Asia forums and events.

Heather Cho, Korean Air

It’s appropriate that our Asia Pacific region is the launching pad for Asia Pacific Onboard Travel (APOT.Asia).

The growth in the Airline industry throughout our region is well documented and it’s now both timely and appropriate that APOT.Asia brings together local and international industry leaders and their organizations to meet and discuss matters of common interest.

Peter Smith, Alpha Flight Services

At a time when Asia/Pacific Region and Middle East lead the way in airline industry growth, it’s great to have APOT to facilitate a productive gathering of airline and related industry professionals. This will enable all of us to learn from industry leaders as well as from each other.

Sarath Fernando, Sri Lankan Airlines Catering

Asia and Pacific  region, being the fastest growing travel region in the world with China and India opening up to world travel requires strong networking opportunities.

The region has a lot to offer.

It has many established large carriers and new concept airlines like Etihad Airways with fast growth and new vision of air travel. On the other side low service airline creating new service standards and trends.

Werner Georg Kimmeringer, Etihad Airways

To have the event within Asia Pacific region will be more worthwhile since the target audience are all based here, Less time wasted to adjust time difference and so on when we travel long distance destinations.

Easier to adapt and understand local culture and mass market’s demand.

Great idea and it is perfectly timed where really needed programme like this for our region.

Shireen Chia, AirAsia Berhad

Hi guys, what a great idea and what a great timing – Having Asia Pacific organisation was needed for long time, we as European base Inflight product suppliers would love be part of the organisation to meet and learn how things happen in Asia and Pacific part of the world.

This type of organisation was needed for long time and it would not have come on any better time than this, well done APOT team we are behind you and we will give you the support you need from Frankanburg.

See you guys in Bali first week June.

Rüdiger Friedrichs, Frankenberg GmbH

Our region is the fastest growing within our industry and at the same time unique to other regions and areas.

This is a great venue and forum for all the participants to showcase their ideas, notions and know how,  we can discuss the way forward for the demands
that will be upon us in the years ahead.

Lou D'alessio, Alpha Flight Services

Congratulations on the setting up of APOT.asia This is very timely as Asia Pacific is the focus of the future of Travel industry.

The focus has to be aligned to meet the initial objectives of networking , synergy, educational for the better advancement of our mutual benefits in the sensitive Travel economy.

Philip Ho, Keisha Trading

I think having a forum on On-board Travel within the Asia Pacific region is a fantastic idea.

Being an independent business owner of an airline catering and food manufacturing company, I think it is important to talk to other people within in industry and having it all in one place, so close to home is ideal!

Ismail Hazif, Perth In-flight Catering & Pic Fresh

As the aviation Retail and Buy On Board sector matures and grows, I believe a need exists for a vehicle in our region though which the latest trends, latest products and most up to date news about our industry can be disseminated. The opportunity to hear and share ideas with others in the travel sector would also be of value.

The opportunity to meet with Airlines, suppliers, manufacturers, regulators and relevant subject matter experts and tackle some of the common issue that effect each of us is always invaluable.

Ian Bollen, Gate Gourmet Services & Inflight Logistic Services

The news of an assembly of an Asia Pacific On-board Travel organization (APOT.asia) seems to me to be most timely for the region and I would give it my full support.

Meeting on the Island of Bali which is ideally situated to host the APOT conference, Geographically perfectly situated to host visitors from the vast Australasian region.

Bob Ferguson, Former Senior Vice President Aircraft Catering Emirates

Since Malaysia/Thailand/Singapore/the Philippines/ Brunei/China/India/Australia and New Zealand have all taken steps to tap into the global Halal market. There is great potential for this region in developing and promoting the halal products and services for global market.

Statement of facts – The Halal products and services are gaining increasing acceptability among non-Muslims and created interest among food and non food producing countries – Muslim and non-Muslim.

Hj. Rafek Saleh, Malaysia Airlines

Asia – Pacific is referred to as the fastest developing region of the world meanwhile it also is a multi-culture region which incorporated with countries at different levels of development and living standard. In the light of that a forum that focusing on the regional issues and aiming to help the relevant parties to improve services quality and management efficiency is a great idea!

Le Thanh Binh, Noibai catering services Jsc

When it comes to the personalised “YES” Bali is the answer for the launching of Asia Pacific On-board Travel- APOT, with the spirit to build the foundation among On-board Travel Industry definitely will strengthening our professional and mutual benefits across the border not only Airline industry and In-flight Catering but also Travel Agent and Hotel Accommodation.
