MICE Capabilities: MICE Standards

The Path to Global Recognition

Energy-Smart with ISO 50001

As the foremost Green Meetings destination in Asia, Thailand is leading the way in emphasising energy conservation in our MICE operations, leading to cost savings of up to 20 per cent for event organizers. The MICE Capabilities Development department provides strong support and resources to enable Thai MICE operators to become accredited by the ISO 50001 Energy Management System, which outlines technical and managerial strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve environmental performance.

Beyond Taste: Increasing Appetites for Global Food Standards

Thailand’s renowned cuisine, fresh ingredients and culinary prowess are a major attraction for international event participants. To assure visitors that the food they eat is of the highest quality, the MICE Capabilities Development department is pushing the industry to acquire the highest food safety certifications. Many already have GMP and HACCP certificates. However, our goal is to push for ISO 22000, the global standard and food management system for the whole food chain.

Green Your Events for a Sustainable Environment

Expanding on its green initiative, TCEB has adopted a new sustainability strategy for the Thai MICE industry, based on the self-sufficiency philosophy of His Majesty the King. Under TCEB’s guidance, Thailand is only the second country in the world to implement and encourage certification in the new standard ISO 20121, the Event Sustainability Management System, which advocates management based on social, economic and environmental considerations. TCEB’s pioneering move has placed Thailand firmly on the global MICE map as an advocate of sustainability.
