CWT Meetings & Events, a multinational specializing in meetings and events management, has nominated Steven Smith Senior Director for the Asia-Pacific area. Smith will be a part of the CWT Regional Leadership Team, based in Singapore, and the Global CWT Meetings & Events Team.

Smith was appointed following the mid-2012 nomination of Floyd Widener, who was called to helm CWT Meetings & Events on a global level. Smith and Widener will work together to give CWT Meetings & Events customers in the Asia-Pacific area access to an even wider range of global services as well as world-class tools and processes, while further developing specific expertise and best practices on a regional level.

"Given that our customers continue to keep a close eye on cost control, the need to manage meetings strategically is becoming an increasingly important requirement, in order to obtain the desired results and savings.  Last year, our meeting and events activities registered double-digit growth on a global level; we’re expecting this to continue into 2013, especially as regards the Asia-Pacific" market”, commented Widener.

Thanks to extensive knowledge of the events industry, Smith has worked in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. He previously held the role of managing director of IQPC in Singapore, a global organization which produces more than 2,000 conferences, seminars and learning programmes annually worldwide, with the responsibility of expanding the company’s presence in China.
