Adventoro Travel Technologies Sdn Bhd announces it has been selected by World Tourism Forum Lucerne as a finalist for the upcoming Start-Up Innovation Camp 2019 to be held in in Lucerne, Switzerland. Adventoro is one of three finalists placed in the category of Destination.
Ken Lau, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Adventoro said, “We are honoured to be chosen as a finalist to take part in the Start-Up Innovation Camp event in Lucerne. Having an opportunity to present Adventoro on an international stage means a lot to us as a young start-up. Moreover, we cannot wait for the new experience when we get a chance to meet industry leaders, influencers, experts, investors and many other industry players under one roof.”
Adventoro was established in late 2016 with a focus to help travellers discover adventure activities in Malaysia. Since then it has grown the number of destinations on its platform to over 1200. Aside from Malaysia, it now offers adventure activities and destinations located in Indonesia, Laos, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The Company plans to include destinations in Cambodia, Myanmar and the Philippines by year end.
“South-East Asia has plenty of activities to offer to adventure seekers. Since we started, response has been very encouraging from people around the world. Just in 2018 alone, our young start-up managed to rake in RM1.2 million or USD300,000 in total sales. We are working harder to achieve more this year.
“We’ve seen many up-and-coming travel start-ups both in Malaysia and overseas. Being the only start-up chosen from Malaysia to be at World Tourism Forum Lucerne this year, is a privilege. This is a great opportunity for us to tell Adventoro story to the world when we get to Lucerne next month,” explained Ken.
