NICE TO MEET YOU
The Palms Agency is a content production agency comprising of some of Asia Pacific's best content creators, producers and production crew.
We specialise in creating visual content for the corporate event industry, with a profound love for event photography, videography and animation.
The Palms Agency was founded in 2015 by Mike Flynn in Australia, servicing Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with photography, video and event content management solutions. When word of mouth spread, so did our client base and we expanded our operations to beautiful Indonesia. By 2016 we had brought on board a larger team of content creators to help our clients in Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Bali and Jakarta tell their stories. Now in 2020 we are proud to offer our services across the entire APAC region.
