Given the world-class Safety and Hygiene standards in the prompt mode, and the charming local community experiences all set, Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) and Thai MICE stakeholders are now geared up for hosting business events in Thailand!
Tempting deals and offers from Thai MICE and hospitality service providers await MICE buyers at IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific 2021, to be held virtually from 28-30 September 2021. Visitors to the show can look forward to the following exciting programme in addition to the walk-in and scheduled buyer-seller meetings at the exhibition floor which will start next week.
ITB Asia Virtual 2021, which takes place from 25 to 29 October 2021, is seeing a high demand from tourism organisations and partners. As the tourism industry shows promising signs of recovery, the event sees increasing uptake of travel trade buyer registrations, as more trade professionals are looking to explore business opportunities and to connect with travel trade suppliers and partners.
Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) has outlined a three-pronged strategy for 2022. The strategy focuses on developing more cities and organisations for international MICE, upgrading skills and standards, and the pursuit of prominent hosting opportunities. According to Mr Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, President of Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), the organisation’s 2022 strategy will focus on three pillars.
Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) issues the Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) certifications to 194 venues across the country at its MICE Standards Day 2021. Certified Thai MICE operators are now totaling 880, reflecting the country’s capability to provide services and safety of high standards. The 2021 edition of TCEB’s annual event took place on August 26, and was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Anutin Charnvirakul.
