Ev­ery Year, Haute Grandeur metic­u­lously picks a lead­ing travel des­ti­na­tion to host the ex­clu­sive event, and this year, Sof­i­tel Bangkok Sukhumvit was cho­sen. Among the VIP guests were key speak­ers, in­clud­ing the pres­i­dent of the Thai Ho­tels As­so­ci­a­tion, Ms. Su­pawan Tanomkieatipume. “The growth of the Thai tourism in­dus­try has ex­panded rather rapidly,” said Tanomkieatipume. “Thai­land is a coun­try with high po­ten­tial and ca­pa­bil­ity in this busi­ness.
