Our goal here was to find a reseller or a partner company, and it was good to have a lot of companies here. We also had a mini-seminar during the programme, and ACE had invited many people and helped us publicise the seminar successfully. Personally, this seminar has been a great help in identifying potential markets for our business and finding potential customers.

I highly recommend ACE Market Access Programme. I was able to gain a lot of knowledge and make connections with Southeast Asian partners through the programme.
