Political instability hits Pico Thailand’s bottom line

News this week: Earlier this week, Pico Thailand, the Thai-listed subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Pico Far East Holdings, released its results for the financial year ended 31st October 2014. The company posted revenues of US$30 million, a year-on-year decrease of 19%. Pico Thailand recorded a net loss of US$156,000 this year, compared to a profit of US$1.3 million in the previous year.

Pico Thailand’s management attributed the drop in revenues to the downturn in the company’s event marketing business and government projects, and postponement of projects due to the country’s political uncertainty during the financial year.

Australian government assists business events industry

News this week: Last month, the Australian federal government entered into a partnership to assist the country’s business events sector during the bidding and event delivery process. Australia’s minister for Trade and Investment, Andrew Robb, recently unveiled a new framework, “Attracting Business Events to Australia: Role of Government Agencies”, to highlight international business events as part of the government’s economic agenda.

The framework will involve collaboration between the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) and Tourism Australia, the Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB) and the wider business events sector to attract world-class events to Australia.

Lyn Lewis-Smith, president of AACB, commented, “This is a ground-breaking win for the sector. International business events offer high yield benefits beyond the event that drive prosperity for Australia and contribute to the visitor and knowledge economies. With the growth potential of Asian markets, government support and involvement is essential to ensure AACB is in the best-possible position to identify, bid for and win business events that align with the national priority areas, and better connect industry, academia, government and the private sector.”
