PacRim Marketing Group was founded over 30 years ago with a focus on the Pacific Rim region and a vision to engage the best team of skilled multicultural individuals to support our partners’ marketing and communications needs. The company was strategically established in Hawaii—a melting pot of cultures, people, and languages—to act as a bridge connecting clients with Asia Pacific. In order to be even closer to the markets we serve, we then opened another headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.
Our team consists of more than 40 multilingual professionals, who are top talent in the fields of integrated marketing communications, content strategy, and digital solutions. As cultural experts, they help travel, hospitality, destination, and tourism-aligned businesses (including retail, fashion, residential development, and financial industries) increase their share and spend of the Asian International Traveler market.
With the support of our parent company, Vector Inc.— one of the largest independent media communications firms in Asia-Pacific—PacRim Marketing Group can now leverage resources and team members spanning throughout South Korea, Greater China, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
Upon becoming Asia’s regional expert in Travel Consul, an alliance of public relations and marketing agencies around the world, our network grew to include global connections spanning 5 continents.

Our Vision

The word Aloha holds within itself all one needs to know to interact in the company and with stakeholders—clients, partners, friends.
