Universal WorldEvents Asia has had a successful year with
new clients including HR consulting firm, Mercer, the UK International Cultural
Relations Body and the British Council. The company has also won contracts with
three leading pharmaceutical companies.
The Hong Kong office has
grown its operations over the past six months with a number of new appointments
and a move to larger premises with additional space. New staff included Gareth
Gallagher as account director, Rachel Cheung as project manager and Kaman Ng
and Leilani Chan as project executives.
James Thompson, the company’s business director has been seconded to Asia to help develop the office’s existing client list,
increase the team and to concentrate on new client development.
Thompson said: “The Asian market is going to become increasingly important in
the years ahead and it is vital we are able to take advantage of the growing
opportunity. We are thrilled at these new business wins, especially as they
have come from both our target sector of the pharmaceutical industry as well as
new sectors. We look forward to working with our clients to deliver a number of
successful and memorable events for the remainder of 2011 and beyond.’’
