EON Inc. Signs Up With Guam Visitors Bureau



(Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2010; Tumon, Guam) Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) regrettably announces the end of a long-term relationship with Matua Agupa Corporation, which provided public relations and marketing services for Guam in the Philippines.

Adhering to Government of Guam procurement regulations, GVB issues requests for proposals for marketing representation at the end of the contract term. For the first time since 2004, Matua Agupa Corporation was not the highest rated offerer.

“We’ve been pleased with Matua Agupa’s work,” said GVB General Manager Gerald S.A. Perez. “Under their leadership, we’ve seen major accomplishments including increases in visitor arrivals and greater exposure among media, which in turn has contributed to added flights from our major airline carriers and recognition by some of the region’s top trade show organizers. However, the RFP process introduced us to new creative concepts that fit our aspirations to increase Philippine visitors. We wish Matua the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

Visitor arrivals from the Philippines have nearly doubled since Matua Agupa began working with GVB. Most recently, preliminary September 2010 GVB data states arrivals have increased 4.8 percent over last year – from 8,218 to 8,616.

GVB has appointed EON Inc., as its new public relations and marketing agency. The company will be responsible for marketing campaigns targeted at encouraging travel to Guam among Filipinos.

GVB Philippines Office is now housed at 4F Tuscan Building, 114 V.A. Rufino St., Legaspi Village, 1229 Makati City; and can be reached by phone at +63 2 519 6756 or fax at +63 2 892 6769.
