Bhatara Amornrattanakij, the hotel’s Director of Marketing Communications, received the award from Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports Weerasak Kowsurat during the award ceremony held at the BITEC Bangna event centre in Bangkok on March 27.

The JW Marriott Phuket’s meeting venues Mai Khao Salon A, Mai Khao Salon D, Layan 1 and Layan 2 have all been certified by Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB).

The certificate recognises that the hotel has meeting rooms that have passed TCEB assessments and criteria among 107 MICE venues and 332 meeting rooms across the country.

The criteria for the venue standards contain elements with three indicators for physical, technological and service requirements. The focus is the development of a basic standard that will be built on in order to meet the international standard.

Moreover, entrepreneurs certified by Thailand MICE Venue Standards (TMVS) also appear on the “Approved List” and will be publicised worldwide as good venues that meet international standards.

The primary mission of TCEB is to push forward development of the MICE industry with aim of creating continuity and sustainability. MICE industry is growing rapidly; it is becoming being increasingly focused on by business sectors at both domestic and regional levels.

The standardisation of a wide range of venues under the Thailand MICE Venue Standard program is among the key initiatives TCEB undertook over the past five years. It was created to help MICE venues in Thailand meet internationally recognised standards, as this is one of the key factors for organisers when choosing Thailand as their destination for MICE events.

The TCEB, at the forefront of the MICE industry in Asean, is rolling out the program nationwide, with a focus on three target groups including convention/exhibition centres, hotels and resorts, and public/private organisations.

“It is our pleasure to receive the Thailand MICE Venue Standard Award once again. We have won this TCEB Award for the second consecutive year,” said Matthias Sutter, General Manager of JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa.

“To be certified by the government’s leading-edge agency, the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), will enhance our business with domestic and international corporate [entities] as well as our reputation in meetings and events business segment.

“Furthermore, we aim to certify at the next level, with Asean MICE Venue Standard (AMVS) in region as well,” he added.

The JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa provides 10 meeting rooms and boasts a 636sqm Mai Khao Ballroom that can accommodate up to 450 guests. The venue features the state-of-the-art audio-visual system with natural daylight and flexible to breakout rooms.

In total, the beachfront resort’s meeting venues can seat up to 600 clients with a choice of indoor and outdoor venues for MICE and Phuket weddings.
