A total of 194 business events venues will be receiving the Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) this year, as the country continuously upgrades its industry to show its readiness to host events of international standard.
These certifications will be given out by the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) next Thursday, via a virtual event entitled Thailand’s MICE Standard Day. Some 350 business events stakeholders are expected to join in.
Recipients will be divided into three categories ‚Äď meeting rooms, exhibition halls, and special event venues. A total of 472 meeting rooms within 169 venues; 16 exhibitions halls within 10 venues; and 15 special event venues will receive the TMVS certification.
Currently, a total of 880 venues in Thailand have earned TMVS certifications across the three categories.
As part of Thailand’s MICE Standard Day, two workshops ‚Äď Management of Food Waste and Excess Food in MICE Business, and MICE Venue Management for Muslim CLients ‚Äď will also be organised for virtual attendees.
‚ÄúTCEB is setting its sights on inspecting and assessing 155 MICE venues in Thailand in 2022. The bureau will also conduct a feasibility study of a new standard certification, as well as initiate a draft of the criteria for Muslim-friendly events to expand the scope of MICE venue standards,‚ÄĚ shared TCEB president Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya.
Additionally this year, 25 meeting rooms and three exhibition venues will be receiving the ASEAN MICE Venue Standard (AMVS). This is in addition to the 68 venues in Thailand that have already received AMVS, where Thailand is also the first country to have implemented this regional standard.
