South Australia selects CIMGlobal (Australasia) for SALP Program

CIMGlobal’s Australasia chapter, which was opened in Adelaide in July this year, is thrilled to be picked for the state’s South Australian Landing Pad (SALP) Program! This latest development enables CIMGlobal to establish a South Australian base, drawing on the resources and professional experience of our international network to help clients in the Australasia region transform their businesses while raising the standards of the modern service industry.

Hailing CIMGlobal’s move to the state as a welcome addition to South Australia’s tourism sector, Minister for Trade and Investment, Stephen Patterson said that the Adelaide office will provide the key for Australasia to connect with its global offices in Amsterdam, Singapore, Dubai, Washington DC, and India. “The Adelaide office would enable CIMGlobal to utilize opportunities to endorse event venues and conferences in Australia, specifically Adelaide, thereby contributing significantly to the South Australian economy,” Patterson said.

CIMGlobal CEO Prasant Saha, expressing his delight at being selected for the program, said, “We’re very excited about our new office in Adelaide. We’re now better equipped to enhance our offerings to the Australasia region.”

The prospects arising from South Australia and the innovative initiatives rolled out by its government remain the key drivers that motivated CIMGlobal to choose Adelaide for the strategic expansion of our brand into the Australasian region.

CIMGlobal Managing Director for Australasia, Sujoy Dey, elaborates, asserting that the close alignment of South Australia’s priority sectors with CIMGlobal’s existing client base, especially in the health and medical industry space was what has made Adelaide the logical choice. “We will offer professional services support to associations in the region, leveraging our experience and global network. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the economic development of South Australia,” Sujoy enthused.

For Sujoy, this new stint marks a return to familiar territory. In 1987, he was part of the Adelaide Convention Centre’s opening team and worked with the management for 20 years. Under his able leadership, CIMGlobal will take up residence in the new technology Innovation Hub, known to be one of the largest entrepreneurial neighborhoods in the Southern Hemisphere.

Adelaide Convention Bureau (ACB) CEO Damien Kitto, welcoming CIMGlobal to Adelaide, expressed a desire to work closely with the team to promote conventions and business events in South Australia. “The global convention sector is currently focused on managing Covid-19 and the ACB is meticulously postponing events to 2021 and 2022. Owing to how international conferences are planned and committed years in advance, the sector has a strong role to play in South Australia’s economic recovery,” Kitto said.

CIMGlobal’s continued global success is a strong testament to our firm’s commitment and focuses on results. With this new chapter, we look forward to supporting organizations in Australia in building businesses of eminence.
