Spread the Love -- glomp! Debuts in Singapore and Hong Kong

When Deepening Connections Between People Are All About Giving

SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) - Riding on the shift in the media landscape toward social media and digital communications, glomp!, a revolutionary new digital platform that enables tangible treating between friends, has officially launched in Singapore and Hong Kong.

Primed to become the next digital connectivity phenomenon in the region and beyond, glomp! enhances the quality of touch between individuals by enabling a greater and more personal online, and offline experience. Catching up with friends in person has increasingly become a challenge in our fast-paced society. So while sending a message, sharing a video or to 'Like' and comment on friends' posts may be a nice gesture, treating them to something they can physically enjoy is even more gratifying.

"We're really excited to bring to 'social' and digital media to that next level of connectivity. glomp! actualises into the digital space, that age-old friendly interchange of treating one another. And since digital media is revolutionising the process of connectivity on a global level, glomp! aims to extend this progression by covering the world," shared Zachary Lai, creator of glomp!.

In a fun and convenient manner, glomp! bridges the digital connectivity gap by enabling friends and acquaintances to real world treating of enjoyable products ranging from a coffee, smoothie or beer to an ice-cream. Whether it's to say thanks, extending congratulations, cheering someone up or touching base with a client, with just a few clicks glomp! allows you to express your gestures of appreciation as frequently as you wish through a casual treat. And with Christmas and New Year just around the corner, what better way is there to share the festive joy?

The glomp! platform partners with quality retail and service outlets that offer a tantalising variety of enjoyable products to select from. Cafés, bars and anywhere a treat can be enjoyed are likely places where people can expect to be glomp!ed at. Quality partner brands include the likes of Le Noir, Berrylite and Cedele, alongside other exciting brands to come. The spread of outlets will extend both far and wide, which makes redeeming treats exceptionally convenient.

Following its official debut in Singapore and Hong Kong simultaneously, glomp! will be establishing its presence as the pre-eminent treating platform worldwide. In no time at all, giving and receiving treats across the globe will be possible in the most convenient and exciting manner.

Great Channel for Merchants

Marketing choices for merchants such as cafés, bars, confectionary stores and spas that are constantly looking for better ways to reach out to consumers by bringing products closer to them have just been expanded. To add value to their business, glomp! invites quality merchants to join this new phenomenon and be a part of this new world of stronger connectivity for their customers.
