This group of companies was started by Andy Davison in 1996 after he left American Express for whom he had worked all over the world.
It has four basic areas of business:
PRINT MEDIA This side of the business, has been significantly reduced in recent years because of the declining interest in print media.
Our main publication is The Expat, a monthly magazine, targeting the resident expat community which was first launched in 1996
We also produce two annual guides. The first is the Expat Welcome Guide which aims to assist newly arrived expats settle into the country. The other is the Expat Education Guide about international education available in Malaysia.
We also offer contract servicing and currently produce the membership magazine for the Royal Selangor Golf Club probably the most prestigious golf club in Malaysia with some very influential members.
Our most popular website is www.ExpatGo.com which again primarily targets expats but also has many like-minded Malaysian visitors. It has news and information about living in Malaysia.
We have a restaurant information site, covering the KL dining scene called www.EatDrink.my
We organise a number of events from small ones to large scale. These are both for our own account and for clients. We have held major exhibitions as well a number of contests for international schools.
Every month in KL we organise a sit down Wine Dinner at a different restaurant. We also have stand up Mingles with light food and drinks each month again at a different outlet each month. The Mingles are also held periodically in Johor and in Penang.
Once a year in Kuala Lumpur and Penang we hold WhiskyPLUS, the biggest whisky tasting event in Malaysia with upwards of 60 different brands of whisky.
We have several new events in the planning stage.
We have been an approved agent for the Malaysia My Second Home programme for over 15 years and have helped hundreds of people acquire the visa. Our connection with visa holders extends to our other businesses. We have ongoing communicating with resident MM2Hers and the government has asked for our help in contacting people with an MM2H visa on a number of occasions.
