When you look at your show schedule, it’s obvious; global exhibitions are now part of the way we do business. And because so much of the growth is taking place in the APAC region, Idea International is growing as well to keep up with the robust expansion of the industry in our part of the world.
To meet the needs and expectations of our clients who want the best possible experience, or as we say, “peace of mind – half a world away,” we’ve grown our team:
Brian, a native of West Virginia, came to Japan as an exchange student and fell in love with the culture and lifestyle. He returned as soon as he was able, working as an English teacher. In determining what he wanted to do with his life, he realized that the fast pace of the exhibition industry, the focus on details and the satisfaction of a job well done was a match for both his skills and his personal growth.
I learned that nothing is more important than the direct contact between a business and its customers. Every detail of the booth is important because this is a full experience of the brand that people will remember deeply. It is satisfying when a project is completed and you can sit back with your partners and relish a job well done.
Australian native Ian Michie worked in the German exhibitions and conferences industry for two years before pursuing his interest in Asia and particularly in Japan, where he finds we can learn a lot: “work ethic, respect, eating well, and relaxing in onsens.”
Ian traces his interests in exhibitions to an auto show he attended as a child:
I loved seeing the cars and the displays and seeing the excitement in the hall as the latest and greatest innovations were showcased. I’m inspired by the many different parts that come together to ensure a successful event: the client, the venue, the contractors, the organizers. We all somehow work together to ensure everyone leaves the event satisfied.
The market is expanding, the exhibit industry is healthy and our company has an influx of young, exciting talent. Our partnership model offers companies and their suppliers the ideal situation for exhibiting here. Growth is Good!
Osaka, January 13, 2015. Christopher Dorn, president of Osaka-based Idea International, is pleased to announce the addition of key account manager, Ian Michie, to his team. He will be based in Osaka.
Ian, a native of Australia, who holds a BA from the University of Sydney and an MBA from the University of Newcastle, has worked in conference sales in Australia, Germany and Japan. He is multilingual.
“Our business has developed to the point where it makes sense to expand our staff,” said Dorn. “Ian is experienced in the event industry and very savvy. He is a great fit as the demand for client services in Australia continues to increase.”
