Last month I took the opportunity to visit Bangkok where I had three days of meetings with Greg Bangerter from CSI together with Jeep and his staff from CSSEA. It was great to see the progress of the newest CS affiliate and to meet with one of CSSEA’s major customers, GISTDA of Thailand. CSSEA was recently successful in winning a large tender for supply of weather stations and flux systems to GISTDA (Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency) where CS equipment will be used to ground truth satellite information.
Greg, Jeep and I then travelled to Singapore for the Intermet Asia 2016 Conference where we were joined by Joshua Campbell, CSI’s VP of Sales and Marketing. Joshua gave an excellent opening keynote presentation on Agro-Meteorology on the opening day of the conference. Joshua was also joined on the opening day keynote speaker’s panel by Brian Day, CEO of Campbell Scientific Canada and Chairman of HMEI, who gave a keynote presentation titled “Partnership based on Trust – the cornerstone of the future.”
The Intermet Asia conference contained some excellent and informative presentations and offered a great opportunity to catch up with suppliers and major customers in the Southeast Asian region as well as spend time with Andrew Chan, CEO of our Singaporean distributor WETEC together with Mr Lim, and Mark Chan of Kizentec in Singapore.
