No limit on size and attendance as business meetings resume in Thailand

After much discussion and cooperation with the public-private sector regarding strict hygiene safety guidelines the Thailand government has given the all clear for face to face business activity, with no cap on meetings sizes or numbers in attendance. Thailand is already looking ahead to international travel and although still yet not on the cards, they’re making preparations to welcome travellers.

“The Hygiene Guidelines target venue operators and businesses organising events, so that meetings can be organised, managed and controlled in accordance with directives of the Ministry of Public Health. It is a collaborative product of TCEB, Thailand Incentive and Convention Association, Thailand Exhibition Association and Event Management Association,” Mr Chiruit said.

As the pandemic spread, Thailand took extreme precautions, and TCEB began to work with venues operators and businesses to draft a new set of operating procedures.

TCEB and the Ministry of Public Health inspected venues and their pre-event, onsite, and post-event practices to ensure they werere adhering to the guidelines.

Conference and exhibition venues that passed were allowed to reopen at the start of June and by mid-June all events that complied with the guidelines were back in action with no limit on size.

Mr Chiruit added: “IT is used extensively to mitigate risks, including advance booking, onsite QR code scanning and post-event waste management. An event organisation report must be submitted to the relevant authorities.”

He said it’s imperative public and private sectors work together to ensure business meetings and events are conducted under the government’s new guidelines. “This will enhance confidence in Thailand’s MICE (meetings incentives conventions & exhibitions) business and ensure that industry can move forward with stability and safety.”
