A series of presentations from the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and the private sector will lead into an open session during which the audience will be able to exchange ideas with the speakers and other tourism industry representatives.
Speakers will include Supawan Teerarat, Director – Vice President of Strategic and Business Development at the TCEB; Welf Ebeling, Vice President, APAC, of the GBTA; and Mark Simmons, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Asia-Pacific, of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts.
The event is open to the public and, AmCham says, “presents a tremendous opportunity for those associated with hotels, tourism and the service industry to learn more about Phuket’s Mice sector and how this important segment can contribute to the island’s focus in generating quality visitors versus quantity.”
Registration for the event, which is co-organised by the Greater Phuket Chapter and Travel & Tourism Committee of AmCham, begins at 4pm, with the event running from 4:30 to 6:00pm. Admission is B100. Networking drinks will follow.
