The growth plan will see offices opening across Asia to give the DMC additional on-the-ground operations, expanding its presence in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and Thailand. The company will add offices in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, India and Sri Lanka over the next 12 months. 

"The transition from HG Travel to ASIA DMC represents our growth from a local destination management company to expanding into Indochina over the last five years. Now we're a continental player offering innovative, new products throughout Asia," said ASIA DMC CEO, Tran Thanh Nam. 

"The change of name is also the consolidation of our commitment to the B2B model we have honed for the past two decades as we now look to the future. Our development is testament to our partners, team and ability to deliver consistently high quality and memorable travel experiences. It is now time for us to grow and bring our excellence in service to the world."
