Thus, it creates a win-win situation for both the owners and event planners,” added Yusno.

“With the expansion of the tourism and hospitality industry both domestically and regionally within ASEAN, we are hopeful that both our event management software will become value-added practical tools not only for event planners and organizers, but also as an educational instrument for those offering event management courses,” said Yusno.
