Venue and event management company ASM Global is increasing its footprint in the Asia Pacific region with the announcement of new regional headquarters in Singapore and plans to grow its overall operations in the region.

ASM Global CEO and President Ron Bension said, “We believe that this part of the world is ready for a phase of robust growth, and we’re investing in personnel and plans to ensure we’re at the forefront of a significant growth curve.”

Harvey Lister, ASM Global APAC Chairman and Chief Executive, cited ASM’s under-construction Kai Tak Sports Park in Hong Kong; the recently unveiled Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center; and six future arenas confirmed to be managed by ASM Global in the region as examples of the area’s vast potential.

ASM Global Singapore will have a joint leadership team comprising two long-term industry specialists: Executive Vice President, Operations Paul Sergeant, a veteran 30-year venue management industry leader; and Ed Sanderson as Executive Vice President, Venue Development. The two are expected to take up their roles in Singapore by the end of the year.

Lister said he is confident about the company’s expansion and looks forward to working closely with the team. “This is an exciting development and reinforcement of the importance of this region to our organisation and the expansion of our regionally based business activities, he said.
