Different from other platforms is that you’re able to offer MG Bedbank a unique position by being a preferred partner. This means we get the exposure that will promote us in the right ways. By having this agreement in place it also makes it a lot easier for clients to connect.

How important is this association and what can you offer?

By linking up with TravelgateX we’re looking to connect with clients faster and in a more cost-effective manner. We see our products are appealing to those companies looking for excellent content in Southeast Asia.
