Thailand happens to be one of the world's most in-demand destinations for conference participants. This has largely been due to the government's effort to ramp up MICE tourism across the nation.
Fantastic Conference Venues
Thailand has no shortage of world-class convention and exhibition spaces in Bangkok and other popular destinations such as Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai. By far the biggest is Impact Muang Thong Thani, followed by the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre. There are several others nationwide. Almost all major MICE events come with a range of tours both in the host city and in Thailand. Over the past few years, this range of tours has expanded to include neighbouring countries in the Greater Mekong Sub-region, in particular Myanmar, which has now become quite easy for tourists to visit.
A Range Of Accommodation Options
The range of accommodation in Thailand covers all denominations, from two-star lodges to six-star luxury. In Bangkok, most accommodation is close to public transport stations and therefore easily accessible. The availability of such accommodation can go a long way in extending the reach of MICE events and improving attendance.
● Transport Is Stupendous
Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, the country's main international gateway, is now served by more than eighty scheduled airlines from over a hundred cities around the world, according to Airports Thailand. Other airports such as Phuket also enjoy more direct access from overseas. In addition to visa-free access, superb flight connections make it easier for MICE events to attract greater attendance.
Scrumptious Thai Cuisine
The dining and entertainment options in Bangkok are endless. From international-style eateries to roadside stalls, participants are guaranteed to be able to eat almost twenty-four hours a day. Sukhumvit and Silom Roads have plenty of restaurants catering to the expat market; Chinatown has hundreds of small stalls and restaurants; The backpacker area of Khao San Road now has excellent bars and restaurants, while all the major hotels will have excellent outlets.
