MICE Overview

The total number of visitors to Thailand has grown rapidly over the past 20 years from around eight million arrivals in 1998 to over 35 million in 2017. For 2018 the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) forecasts revenue of 3.1 trillion baht (US$ 9.1 billion) in tourism revenue, according to Governor Yuthasak Supasorn.

The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) has set a target of 1,340,231 international MICE and business event travelers for 2018, with an economic value of 109.8 billion baht (US$ 3.4B).

Not just an exotic destination

TCEB leads the way in pushing Thailand’s MICE operators to meet international standards. The kingdom is already the leading Green Meetings destination in Asia, which means cost savings of up to 20% for event organisers, and TCEB provides support to companies working in the business events field to achieve ISO 50001 Energy Management System accreditation. On another front, MICE caterers are being strongly encouraged to seek accreditation for ISO 22000, the Global Standard and Food Management System, while Thailand is only the second MICE destination in the world to implement and encourage certification in the new standard ISO 20121, the Event Sustainability Management System.
