In line with Storytel’s previous announcements on continued international expansion, the company’s new office in Bangkok, Thailand, will serve as regional office for expansion in Asia. Staff from the Storytel Expansion Team will be stationed at the Bangkok office during its first few months of operation.
“Asia as a region is very attractive to us for several reasons. For one thing, many Asian countries are technologically ahead of the game in terms of mobile services with various payment models, including consumer behavior we’d like to become more acquainted with. It also has great potential, in most countries untapped, as a market for audio-books,” says Stefan Tegenfalk, Head of Expansion at Storytel.
Storytel is also a co-sponsor of the fiftieth anniversary conference of the Singapore Book Publishers Association (SBPA) on September 21st–23rd, 2018.
