THAILAND-based Creative Destination Management (CDM) is expecting a 25 per cent growth in business in the first year of operations after joining, from July 1, the Brussels-based DMC consortium, euromic, as its new world affiliate in South-east Asia.
The Thai DMC’s managing director, Sumate Sudasna, said the 25 per cent business growth for the company would be on top of the anticipated rebound in business events into Thailand, barring any post-election political turmoil.
Sumate said being a euromic world affiliate would give the company networking opportunities and access to euromic’s worldwide marketing programme, albeit at a substantial annual fee.
He said CDM would leverage on euromic’s wealth of information and business partnerships with events planners, to pursue sales and marketing activities in a bid to attract business into Thailand and neighbouring South-east Asian countries.
Euromic, founded in 1973, now boasts 29 DMC members in Europe and the Mediterranean, as well as eight world affiliates, including CDM.
