Manila, Philippines (February 11, 2019) – Glue Up, the company behind the Asia's most recognized and award-winning membership and event management cloud software, today announced the opening of their newest office in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. The new office in the country will enable Glue Up to capitalize on and accelerate digital transformation, a part of it's asia pacific expansion campaign, by providing its software solutions to even more local and multinational organizations eager to adopt the newest technology.
In 2013, Glue Up first started in the US and China followed by the Asia Pacific expansion in 2018, when it opened its Hong Kong and Singapore offices in an effort to extend Glue Up’s global reach. Now, with offices in regional hubs of Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and a growing network of partner offices like in Seoul and Moscow, Glue Up plans to build even further on the tremendous growth that has already taken place in the Asia Pacific region. The new roles in the Philippines will span nearly all aspects of Glue Up’s business including sales, marketing, services, and support.
According to the recent study by Microsoft and IDC APAC (link) digital transformation will add an estimated US$8 billion to the Philippines’ GDP, and increase the growth rate by 0.4% annually by 2021. The same study expects around 40% of the Philippines’ GDP will be from digital products and services. These macro trends further highlight the optimistic forecast for the adoption of event and membership management solutions developed by Glue Up in the coming months and years in the Philippines.
CEO and Co-Founder, Eric L. Schmidt, said “I’m proud of what Glue Up has achieved across the Asia Pacific so far and our new office in Manila is another step to accelerate our growth in the region. There is a huge potential to help millions of organizations across the Philippines to become digital and more efficient with our all-in-one cloud solutions. I believe that we are only just scratching the surface of what we can achieve in this fast-growing region and we are excited to be one big step further on our mission to transform the professional communities with the new office in Manila.”
The opening of the new office in the Philippines will enable the Glue Up team to be closer to the rapidly growing number of the customers and to engage new ones. Those that will be able to benefit from the new Manila office include existing customers using Glue Up's Chamber of Commerce & Association Management Software and Event Management Software such as American Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, Bankers Association of the Philippines, Eventscape Manila, Global Links MP Events, European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines or the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
