TCEB propels the country’s exhibition industry
The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) unveiled its 2014 exhibition industry strategy, which will showcase the strength of Thailand as a leader of the international exhibition industry in ASEAN. TCEB highlighted three key success factors: bringing new shows to Thailand, successful joint ventures between Thailand’s MICE entrepreneurs and renowned international exhibition organisers, and the establishment of international players looking to Thailand as a springboard to ASEAN. According to the exhibition industry’s strategy in 2014, TCEB will focus on its role as marketer and partner to further penetrate new markets and create awareness while working closely with partners to accelerate the number of MICE visitors to international exhibitions in Thailand. As connector and initiator, TCEB will emphasise the strength of business opportunities in Thailand as a springboard to success in the AEC. The bureau also supports joint ventures between Thailand’s exhibition organisers and foreign corporations specialising in various industries. TCEB is confident that Thailand will be able to attract eight new exhibitions into the country while upgrading 32 existing exhibitions to high industry calibre, from a total of 83 to 85 exhibitions in 2014. TCEB strongly believes that the exhibition industry will be an essential element to help drive the Thai MICE industry to reach its overall 2014 target of 987,000 MICE travellers and 96,900 million baht in total revenue.
