Message from the President - Hospitality Purchasing Association (Singapore)



The Hospitality Purchasing Association (Singapore) would like to congratulate AsiaHoreca on its latest 2018/2019 edition.



The objectives of the Association are to foster and promote the professionalism, development and application of hospitality purchasing in all aspects including sourcing, buying, store management, inventory control, and facilities management through the organisation of appropriate activities amongst its members.

It is very encouraging to see an incremental growth in content and context of the AsiaHoreca directory over the years serving the ever-changing needs of business partners.

The directory is also an excellent form of business resource and opportunity for b2b and b2c channels within the hospitality marketplace and along the supply chain. With increasing demand from the rest of the world sourcing directly from the region potentially more than anywhere else, it may be no surprise to see the value of the directory increase significantly beyond users in Asia.

The hospitality purchasing and procurement fraternity is constantly sourcing for better efficiencies in terms of cost and use of products or services, and AsiaHoreca serves as an excellent starting guide to learn and discover the region and further. The exposure and introduction to various exhibitions in AsiaHoreca also provide our members as well as our hospitality alliance partner associations the opportunity to travel and visit together while exploring new possibilities in savings and innovation.

I would like to thank Marshall Cavendish Business Information Pte Ltd for this opportunity to convey our message and wish the team behind AsiaHoreca’s publication continued success for many more years to come.

Alex Liau
President
Hospitality Purchasing Association (Singapore)
