At the time, the Asia market was growing at a rapid pace with the institutions eager to receive newcomers, take risks and keen to innovate.

A few years later, we could tap into big conferences and rapidly the Asian events became our biggest events in planitswiss group.” notes Arthur Bontemps, 2012 Singapore Country Director.

planitswiss Asia acknowledge and thanks the clients who entrusted us with the events in Asia as we decided to embark on the journey. The strength of the long-standing relations we had with our clients such as Nespresso, Eurocham and PARIMA became the foundation of our presence in Singapore.

It is a proud achievement for us to have maintained these relations to a point of us hosting 6 or 7 editions of their events in various regions over.

The last 2 years have been extremely challenging for the industry. We had to adapt and provide support to our clients amid a global pandemic. Our digital solution of AIOEvents, which was developed 6 years back now– All In One platform played a crucial role alongside a solid experienced team. It made us stronger and impacted our growth as we continue serving our customers in the region.” Said Michel Huguenin, planitswiss Global CEO
