24 August 2015, Thailand MICE Roadshow 2015 to Indonesia has recently wrapped up with a success in connecting Thai suppliers with Indonesian MICE planners and related business counterparts. TCEB’s annual roadshow to Indonesia this year features twofold events, Thailand MICE Dinner Reception for direct corporate clients at Blue Elephant, Jakarta and Thailand MICE Roadshow 2015 which took place at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Jakarta on 20th and 21st August 2015 respectively.
Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) together with team Thailand based in Jakarta including the Royal Thai Embassy, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (TG) invited over 70 Indonesian corporations and MICE intermediaries to meet with 16 Thai suppliers for business matching. Thai private sectors are from hotels, meeting venues, DMCs and airlines. With a stronger force between team Thailand as a country, TCEB, the Royal Thai Embassy, TAT, TG along with Thai private sectors, expect to bring in more than 3,000 Indonesian MICE travelers from this roadshow.
With an increase number of Indonesian MICE travelers over the past few years, Indonesia shows a great potential for Thailand especially for corporate meetings and incentives due to its location proximity, good accessibility and Thailand’s variety of destinations. Shared cultures and traits of Thais and Indonesians also make Thailand ideal for business events destination for Indonesians. As a result, TCEB, by Meetings and Incentives Department will continue to put forward our marketing effort for Indonesian corporate market in order to drive more business events to the country.
