It's an exciting time to be in online commerce, and Asia is most definitely the world's growth engine for e-tailers and service providers big and small. Taking part in a niche, Fintech gathering like eCommerce Expo Asia allows Red Dot Payment to introduce our extensive e-payment solutions to engage decision-makers, and to enhance our position as the go-to payment gateway in the Asia Pacific.

There was a lot of buzz and people around here. From our experience, we got plenty of conversations going around. The scanning app was one of the best we’ve used, it has been so convenient. I didn’t get to attend the conference sessions due to how busy we were at the booth. We spoke to a couple of people selling into the global market so those might materialise into valid opportunities to expand on in future. It’s also really good with all the co-located shows together so there is a variety of potential leads to reach out to.

It’s the first time we’re here, and we can see a real diverse range of clients - there are start-ups and established companies here. It’s been awesome. There is value not just for the Asia Pacific team, but also for our global team as there are people from all over the world here. I’ve customers from the UK coming over to say hi as well. eCommerce Expo Asia really complements the whole co-located tech events. This just adds so many levels to this event, and works well together.
Regional Director, APAC, dotmailer
We are pleased with the turnout and visitorship. The atmosphere is very exciting as there are a lot of interesting topics and content feature. It’s a good idea to have eCommerce Expo Asia co-locating with the other technology events because we have an audience of various industries with different perspectives generating a lot of synergy. We look forward to participating again next year.
