Published on : Tuesday, June 27, 2017

TCEBThe Thailand Conventions and Exhibitions Bureau (TCEB) has stated that Thailand is observing increased confidence as a premier destination for world-class events in all times.


This is due to the fact that global leaders of the association meeting industry have been opting for Thailand as their favorite destination to host two crucial international conferences, that is the 2017 PCMA Global Professionals Conference and the UIA’s Associations Around Table Asia-Pacific 2017 in August and September respectively.


These high-end meetings go on to highlight Thailand as a major meeting destination in the Asia-Pacific region.


Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, the TCEB president has mentioned that global associations have been displaying their confidence by choosing Thailand for the meetings. Therefore it is in sync with the rank of Thailand that had escalated from 27th to 24th on world association meetings destination. On the other hand, the ranking of Bangkok also ascended from 16th to 12th this year.


He said that this was the outcome of the combined strengths of Thailand including its strategic location, connectivity to important destinations in Asia-Pacific, professional services as well as the collaborations with various public and private sectors to strengthen the MICE industry.


This year, Thailand is the preferred destination for over 300 meetings and exhibitions.


The US-based Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) that has 6,500 members and 50,000 customers in Mexico, Canada and the United States is ready to host the PCMA Global Conference Asia-Pacific in Bangkok, from 28th to 31st August, fir the very first time in Asia.


The event partners with TCEB and aims to bring together global partners from leading corporations and associations along with 15 senior-level suppliers from the region representing convention bureas and centres for exploring business opportunities in the Asia-Pacific.


The 100-year-old Union of International Associations (UIA) would also host its Associations Round Table Asia-Pacific 2017 in Chiang Mai from 21st to 22nd September. This is the second time that the UIA would be convening its Asia-Pacific event in Thailand.


Meanwhile, TCEB has also relished close cooperation with the International Congress and Conference Association (ICCA).


TCEB would also be hosting the 5th high-powered ICCA Thailand Seminar in Bangkok in 5th July in Bangkok in partnership with ICCA.
