The Phuket Provincial Office announced last Tuesday (Sept 6) that PM Gen Prayut will lead the event with a speech on “Phuket: From World Class Destination to World Class Smart City & Startup Hub”. (See story here.)

The Phuket Provincial Office website today (Sept 13) still promotes the event as happening at Royal Phuket Marina. (Click here.)

However, The Phuket Provincial Office website has now posted a news release dated last Friday (Sept 9) reporting Phuket Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada announcing that the Digital Startup event will be held at the Duangjit Resort & Spa in Patong.

“The venue has changed, but everything in the event schedule remains unchanged, only the location of the event has changed,” Phuket Provincial Public Relations Chief Buthsaya Jaipiem told The Phuket News today.

“The original venue was too small, so the event was moved to a larger venue with more space,” she explained.

The full event programme is available in Thai and English at the official Thailand Startup website. (Click here.)

PM Gen Prayut will arrive in Phuket before 8am on Friday to officiate the opening of the new terminal at Phuket International Airport along with Transport Minister Arkom Tempitayapaisit.

After delivering his keynote address at the “Startup Thailand and Digital Thailand event in Patong, PM Gen Prayut will attend an event to meet with local residents at Phuket Rajabhat University (PRU) in Rassada, north of Phuket Town.

Organisers for the PRU public appearance have told The Phuket News that they expect more than 2,000 people to turn out to see the Prime Minister.

Now we are 2.5 months further, Prime Minister, what until now is the follow up of your opening? Any idea?
