With the theme ‘Glass industry: One vision in the Asean Economic Community’ and with Glass Worldwide as its exclusive official journal, the ASEAN Federation of Glass Manufacturers (AFGM) has announced that the 39th ASEAN Glass Conference will take place in Shangri-la’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu in the Philippines.
Last January, Pavin Bhirombhakdi took over as President of Bangkok Glass, succeeding this year’s Phoenix Award winner, Surasak Decharin. As the following exclusive interview explains, the two have worked together as part of an effective management team for almost two decades to create one of South East Asia’s leading glassmaking groups.
“The Philippines has always been an anticipated conference venue of the ASEAN Glass Conference and we always aim to improve what we can offer to delegates” says Emmanuel Alcantara. “With the warmth and genuine hospitality of the people, the exciting food variety, the rich Filipino heritage and culture and the beautiful platform of the Shangrila Hotel in Cebu, the event will surely make a remarkable experience for all. We are excited to host it and we will be ready.”
