When it comes to professional and relaxing time with your friends and customers, this is a golden opportunity for you. Great networking and competitive location.
Greetings from Aerofood ACS Indonesia. It is our pleasure to Welcome and support APOT.Asic1 for its first Forum in one of our paradise’s islands.
Bali has attractive surroundings both mountain and coastal areas, diverse tourist attractions, excellent international and local restaurants, and the friendliness of the local people.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Bravo,… APOT Asia, and will always support.
