The Airports of Thailand (AOT) will be the next next host of Routes Asia 2020.
The date has yet to be confirmed, but the event will take place at the Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre.
This announcement was made following a meeting between Supak Phuangvarapun, vice president of business development and marketing at AOT, and Steven Small, brand director of Routes.
AOT owns six international airports and previously hosted Routes Asia in 2006 in Pattaya.
Supak Phuangvarapun, vice president of business development and marketing at AOT, said: â€œWe believe that hosting this event will have a great impact not only for AOT, but on Thailandâ€™s economy overall. Air transport is one of the most powerful means of regional economic developments, and Routes events are where the worldâ€™s network planners meet to discuss future air services.
Steven Small, Brand Director of Routes, added: â€œWe are excited to be supporting AOT with their goal of growing Chiang Mai as an international hub and we are delighted to be taking this event back to Thailand.
