“HID Global, a leader in secure identity solutions, appointed EASTWEST Public Relations to help generate awareness on HID Global and HID solutions in the ASEAN region. Their appointment was timely as HID was participating at Cards and Payment Asia 2016 (concluded 21st of April 2016, Suntec Singapore). We have chosen the tradeshow as a platform to launch our Mobility Initiative, as well as our new goID platform and enhanced mobile access solutions. EASTWEST PR took care of all of our Public Relations needs from developing the event PR plan, pitching media interviews, and developing the right content for our byline articles and social media. EASTWEST PR provided counsel to our sales and marketing executives on the ground and I am pleased that they secured opportunities and coverage in media outlets that mattered to HID. I thank EASTWEST PR’s contribution to the success of the ASEAN mobility initiative launch and I look forward to working with the team again in the near future.”
