Sponsorship and Assistance
Steven Bussey, EQHO’s VP of Global Marketing commented “EQHO has become an active supporter of the Asian localization industry, and we aim to promote Bangkok as a hub for localization. This is the second Asia event, the first being held in April 2013 in Singapore and that was a great success! We hope one day the Asian events will match the size and scale of Localization World’s ‘flagship’ event, Localization World Silicon Valley, this year to be held in Santa Clara and the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara on October 11th and 12th, which we will also be attending”
Steven continued “Though we are very much an international organization with Swedish ownership, and offices in Bangkok, Laos, US, Australia and Europe, our roots are very much here in Thailand. We are a Thailand-registered company with a 90 person production center located in central Bangkok, so we thought, what better way to demonstrate our support than to sponsor the Bangkok event. Needless to say we are offering our full assistance to Localization World to ensure that their Bangkok event is very Thai and naturally very special!”
