APOT event planned for Perth
With a new logo, a new CEO, a new group of ambassadors at the helm and a location and time for its Networking event, Asia Pacific Onboard Travel (APOT) kicked off the year with a golf outing last week in in Jakarta with time to plan for upcoming events.
APOT will shortly be opening registration for the next APOT Networking Event to be held June 24-26 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Perth, Western Australia.
APOT Founder Keerthi “Happy” Hapugasdeniya and Chairman Bambang Sujatmiko announced February 8 at the APOT Golf Day and general meeting in Jakarta that Jeremy Clark of JC Consulting has been invited to take the position of CEO.
“2018 marks Jeremy’s 39th year in the airline catering industry and his experiences include SAS Service Partner, Pan Am, Swissair, Alpha, Royal Brunei and many years of business consulting to both airlines and caterers around the world. Now settled in Asia we welcome him and his talents to our team,” said Happy.
“It’s a perfect opportunity to meet the most influential people in a relaxed and unstressed atmosphere,” said Jeremy. “Asia is the world’s fastest growing airline travel region and I’m looking forward to establishing APOT even further as its main representative forum.”
2018 marks a new start for Asia Pacific Onboard Travel, which provides a relaxed and informal forum for industry professionals from the region to gather and network constructively.
APOT has appointed Salim Hazife, Perth Inflight Catering’s General Manager and Afdal Amir, Vice President Corporate Marketing for PT Aerofood Indonesia as forum ambassadors for this year’s event. Salim is working on a range of events that will include the usual Gala Dinner and some outings focused to the rich heritage and produce of Western Australia. Afdal, with 31 years in the industry will be supporting with action on sponsorships and support.
