APAC Summit, Looking back and moving forward
Late last year Forward3D APAC (Hong Kong, Korea, China, Japan and Singapore), along with members of the board from our London headquarter gathered in Taipei for our first APAC Summit.
Since the official launch of ‘Forward3D APAC’ at the beginning of 2016, APAC has grown massively in all areas; revenue, number of offices, and number of staff. We now have over 70 employees across the region, and we have big plans in place to see this growth continue over the coming years. It was very exciting to all meet for our first APAC event, especially with Martin McNulty (CEO) sharing how we have grown and sharing the agency vision. Also in attendance was James Parr (CFO) impressing us with the latest agency numbers, and of course Hannes Ben (CIO) reminding us of how “global” we are with greetings in 5 different languages.
On day two, each regional office introduced their teams and ran through case studies and some insights from their relevant markets. Following this we ran through the nominations and winners of the F3D APAC Awards, in which we recognised individuals and teams for their hard work within the region and globally.
What made the event so special was allowing colleagues who may have worked together digitally, finally meet in person, from various offices within the region. It really made us all feel like we belonged to a big group.
I think I can speak for everyone when I say I came away from the summit filled with enthusiasm and excitement to be part of the future growth of APAC and the rest of the business, especially with our recent merger with PMX Agency. As the APAC division of ForwardPMX, we will be able to proceed on with our endless development with unlimited opportunity.
