Voice of MICE

TIME 2017 del­e­gates share their ex­pe­ri­ence about the event and their views on the scope of Thai­land as a MICE maket

Micetalk - - Cover Story -

Although Thai­land is the top MICE des­ti­na­tion for Indians, there is need for the Thai in­dus­try to com­mu­ni­cate and con­vince In­dian cus­tomers that there is more to Thai­land than just Bangkok, Pat­taya and Phuket. The lead time for plan­ning is get­ting shorter. Desti­na­tions need to be pre­pared to work on shorter lead time and last minute changes. Ho­tels should con­sti­tute Ad­vi­sory Boards with se­nior man­age­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tive from lead­ing cor­po­rate and MICE com­pa­nies to up­date them about mar­ket trends on reg­u­lar in­ter­vals.” Sushil Sham­lal Wad­hwa Founder & CMD of Plat­inum World Gr­roup

TIME has in­tro­duced us to a new facet of Thai­land, largely dif­fer­ent from the nor­mal Thai­land itin­er­ar­ies. Thai­land al­ready has a good prox­im­ity to In­dia and is at­trac­tive in terms of fare and ease of visa. With the new ex­pe­ri­en­tial of­fer­ing, the rev­enue and the ex­pe­ri­ence for the client can both rise. The prod­ucts show­cased to us will make us share newer desti­na­tions, prop­er­ties, and event lo­ca­tions for our MICE groups and in­cen­tives.” Anil Kalsi Man­ag­ing Part­ner Ambe World Trav­els

TIME is a key in­stru­ment of Thai­land busi­ness trav­el­ling show­case. TCEB has the best con­nec­tion among key play­ers of the world's MICE mar­ket which is an ideal busi­ness op­por­tu­nity for Thai MICE ser­vice providers com­mu­nity. Ear­lier, Thai­land was re­duced to Bangkok, Pat­taya, and Phuket. But now the pres­ence has ex­tended to Chi­ang Mai for In­dian mar­ket. With its charm­ing art and cul­ture, world-class ho­tels, in­ter­na­tional air­port, con­ve­nient trans­porta­tion ser­vice, 5-star con­ven­tion cen­tre, ad­vanced MICE tech­nol­ogy, Chi­ang Mai has myr­iad of­fer­ings." Khun Noi Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor In­deed Cre­ation (DMC)

Events like TIME are strate­gi­cally con­cep­tu­alised to show­case Thai­land as be­ing fully out­fit­ted in ac­cor­dance with in­ter­na­tional MICE re­quire­ments and stan­dards, and read­ily primed to wel­come sec­tor vis­i­tors. In­dian MICE in­dus­try play­ers can be as­sured of gain­ing a whole new per­spec­tive on their events in Thai­land. From our di­ver­sity, dif­fer­ent ge­og­ra­phy and var­ied cui­sine, to unique desti­na­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties can be tai­lor-made to ac­com­mo­date any group size and pref­er­ence -the spec­trum of choices avail­able here is both ex­ten­sive, cost­ef­fec­tive and ben­e­fi­cial." Teer­a­pat Khi­angth­ong Chief Plan­ner/ Man­ag­ing Part­ner IDEXT MICE
