Vietnamese travel company to branch out beyond Southeast Asia to Asia as a whole under expansion plans.
HG Travel, a major tour operator in Southeast Asia, has rebranded itself as ASIA DMC as it moves forward to become one of the dominant B2B players in the region through a considered expansion plan throughout Asia.
The growth plan will see offices opening across Asia to give ASIA DMC additional on-the-ground operations to its already-established presence in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and Thailand, adding Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, India and Sri Lanka over the next 12 months.
Launched 20 years ago in Vietnam, the rebranding demonstrates how far the company has come by specializing in travel to Indochina and developing a renowned track record for quality, service excellence, and experiential travel delivered to 50,000 inbound arrivals from global source markets per year.
“The transition from HG Travel to ASIA DMC represents our growth from a local destination management company to expanding into Indochina over the last five years when we opened in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand and now to a continental player offering innovative, new products throughout Asia,” said Mr. Tran Thanh Nam, ASIA DMC’s CEO.
He added that the change of name is also a consolidation of the company’s commitment to the B2B model over the last two decades. “It is now time for us to grow and bring our excellence in service to the world,” he said.
ASIA DMC remains deeply committed to retaining the original DNA that established the reputation and success of HG Travel.
“We are absolutely committed to continuing to offer the holistic service culture, attention to detail, and personal touch that have defined our company since the beginning,” said Mr. Armand Cheveux, ASIA DMC’s Director of Business Development. “How we research originality in our programs for our clients and how we take to heart their needs to have a competitive offer is what we thrive on.”
In addition to office openings to support the management of travel programs in Asia, ASIA DMC will also open a sales and marketing office in the US on the west coast for its North American clients.
To mark the rebranding, ASIA DMC is also launching a non-profit foundation called “People of Asia”, which is the cornerstone of the company’s commitment to sustainable tourism. People of Asia will embrace a philosophy demonstrating that a combination of social progress and ecological balance will deliver sustained economic growth, bringing together tourism partners for the benefit of local communities.
ASIA DMC has been in business for 20 years and in 2015 handled over 50,000 arrivals to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar managed by its offices and on-the-ground expertise in each country. It currently welcomes guests from international destinations from around the world, with leading source markets being the UK, Europe, the US, China and Australia.
