Successful home-grown SMEs in the spotlight at Singapore Gifts & Premiums Fair’s Hall of Fame

Singapore, 14 July 2014 – Over the past 15 years, Singapore Gifts & Premiums Fair (SGPFair) has witnessed many home-grown companies “come and go” in this competitive gifts and office supplies market with a low entry barrier. Nevertheless, there are the successful ones that are inducted into the Hall of Fame in this special SGPFair 15th year edition.

SGPFair is Singapore’s first and largest gifts exhibition, the premier platform for sourcing needs. The Hall of Fame honours and rejoices in the combined success of the exhibition, and veteran exhibitors who have journeyed along with SGPFair.

Leading players include Axxel Marketing which started from a small office in Singapore but today, it is a leading corporate gifts firm that has a regional presence with offices in QuanZhou, Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur, with over 2,500 clients and 130 employees.
From its humble beginnings in March 1990, PACLIN Singapore has become more than just a local company. Today, it serves well over 3,000 active customers with a staff strength of 40 in Singapore and 20 in Malaysia.

Home-grown company Core Modus serves a niche market with its major strength being innovative in-house designs and extensive product testing. In fact, its business has been impressive after securing notable clients through SGPFair, aiding its venture into Middle Eastern markets – Qatar and Dubai.

At SGPFair’s Hall of Fame, you can meet these successful local gifts and office supplies companies which have withstood the test of time.
SGPFair will be held from 16 – 18 July 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands, Expo and Convention Centre, Level 1, Hall A & B.
