General Manager Oriol Montal received the award from Deputy Prime Minister Gen Thanasak Patimaprakorn during an award ceremony at the ‘MICE Standard Day 2017’ event held at the Plaza Athénée Bangkok on March 13.

The award recognises that the hotel’s meeting facilities are exemplary of the TCEB criteria’s among 101 MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions, exhibitions) venues across the country.

The standardisation of a wide range of venues under the Thailand MICE Venue Standard program is among the key initiatives the TCEB has undertaken over the past four years. The campaign 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 is at the forefront of the MICE industry in Asean, and are rolling out the program nationwide, with a focus on three target groups including convention/exhibition centres, hotels and resorts, and public/private organisations.
