It had ensured a strong focus on ushering on the nation’s MICE industry up to global standards through the Thailand Mice Venue Standard (TMVS) project.
This project is associated with different measures that portray to the rest of the world that Thailand is all geared up to host international events of the most superior quality. And, this actually goes a long way in strengthening the rank of this country as a premier MICE locale, motivating long-term growth and also increasing the competitive edge of the region.
A key aspect of the TMVS project is sustainability, and is also a crucial topic in the global stage of MICE.
The MICE industry of Thailand has also been a spectacle of a gradual transition towards sustainability in the last few years. Minimizing waste, reducing the energy consumption, community outreach and using recycled materials are a few of the numerous ways that hotels and meeting venues in Thailand have developed into more sustainable tourism hotspots in 2016.
The last year also witnessed the launching of many important initiatives by MICE venues and also operators with an aim to upgrade the environmental and social conditions in local communities.
Regional forums had raised the profile of sustainability in Thailand and new programs that encourage carbon neutral events.
TCEB is now taking the idea of sustainability to fresh levels in 2017 by implementing the sustainable venue standards as part of the TMVS project.
Through this project, the various private venues, convention centers and the hotels of Thailand are being certified for sustainability.
These centers are already certified.
There exist at least 200 certified TMVS venues all across Phuket, Pattaya and Bangkok.
The regional and global event organizers are also emerging as winners as the MICE industry of Thailand progresses towards achieving new successes. Meetings and incentive groups form different parts of the world can now enjoy the opportunities of accessing the beautiful MICE venues in Thailand thanks to TCEB’s ‘Meet Sustainable Way’ campaign.
