Exhibitions in 2021 Success Stories Review

To all exhibition stakeholders, please accept our greatest appreciation for your continuous fighting spirits in organizing exhibitions throughout this challenging year, be they physical or hybrid events.

In the pre-pandemic period from 2016-2021, international exhibitions in Thailand attracted approximately 196,000 international participants and 22 million local visitors each year, generating an annual national income of over USD 3 billion and accounting for 55% of the MICE industry.

Fundamentally, exhibitions are a form of experiential marketing engaging active and highly motivated exhibitors and visitors in a face-to-face environment. Although the impacts of the pandemic have disrupted the exhibition industry as a whole, the crisis has presented exhibition organizers with new opportunities. Many have refreshed perspective on the market and enhanced the utilization of digital and innovation technologies, as set forth by TCEB. As the country is returning to normalcy in the last quarter of 2021, there are 15 physical and hybrid international shows successfully taking place under TCEB’s MICE safety and hygiene standard charter. 

TCEB’s Exhibitions Department is always there for you. For support inquiries or more information, please contact exhibitions@tceb.or.th.
