The road show will conclude at the closing of CBME South East Asia in Singapore.
CBME’s general manager, Athena Gong, said, “CBME exhibitors have been looking into extending their reach in Asia, beyond China and India. The launch of CBME South East Asia is in response to the market demand. Singapore, with its efficient transport system and world-class infrastructure is an ideal venue for South East Asia. Its strategic location will be an easy access for Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Burma (Myanmar).”
