Philippines, 7 July 2020 – Global-Link MP Events International, Inc. today announced the launch of its newest platform by VX Events, where four of its trade events will hold virtual editions starting October this year, including Hotel Suppliers Show VX.
“There is no doubt that the events industry is going to continue to change for the months and years to come,” said Patrick-Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link MP. “We knew we could not just sit around and hope for things to go back to normal. We have to continue serving the needs of our clients, our exhibitors, and the people who join trade shows to generate business. VX Events is our answer to that. We’re leveraging on our experience as trade event organizers and using technology to continue doing that in a digital space.”
The announcement was made through an interactive virtual press conference attended by notable personalities from the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The press conference also featured an impressive walkthrough of what to expect in the upcoming virtual events.
“We made sure that the platform is very straightforward, no-frills, easy to use, mobile-friendly, and will demand only a little amount of your network bandwidth. Non-tech savvy users, like us, can easily navigate!” remarked Lagandaon. “We’re so thankful that we met and partnered with EventXtra who was already developing this platform and let us further tailor-fit it to the needs of the local market.”
Global-Link MP has exclusive rights to use the platform in the Philippines. Founded in 2014, EventXtra is an event technology developer that has served more than 3,000,000 guests and 10,000 events for companies and organizations including Amazon, Apple, International New York Times, Cisco, Siemens, HKTDC, and more.
“There is no other way for us to cope with what is happening than to adapt, and we are very thankful that Global-Link MP initiated and invested in a platform like this. This is really made for a country like the Philippines that allows users to navigate perfectly throughout the entire event even with limited bandwidth available.” expressed Duke Zuluaga, chairman of CFIP.
