EventBank on the Go: Trip to Myanmar

Our CEO, Eric L. Schmidt, spent his past week in Myanmar and we thought it would be a good idea to share some of the highlights of his interesting journey.

During his trip, Eric has presented winners of APAC 2017 Chamber Awards with their awards and he also took some time to meet with local Myanmar organizations and even visited some of the most famous tourist destinations.

Presenting the 2017 APAC Small Chamber Award

This past week, CEO of EventBank Eric L. Schmidt was in Myanmar to present CCI France Myanmar and Australia-Myanmar Chamber of Commerce with the 2017 APAC Small Chamber Award at “Joint Networking Cocktail with A-MCC” event organized by CCI France Myanmar to celebrate their success in APAC 2017 Chamber Awards. These two chambers have had impressive achievements within the past year. It was a great pleasure that EventBank could be present at the event and hand in the awards in person.

While in Myanmar, Eric spent some time with various local representatives from associations and chambers. As CEO of EventBank, Eric hopes to learn more about challenges local organizations are facing and how EventBank might help to overcome them.

Additionally, our CEO met with the American Chamber of Commerce in Myanmar, the Myanmar Federation of Mining Associations, TODAY Publishing House, the US Embassy, and the Myanmar Forest Products and Timber Merchants Association.

Eric was thoroughly impressed by the quality of people that he met in Myanmar and by the work that they were doing. Through these meetings, Eric was able to more personally share how EventBank is transforming organzations’ operations.
