Nutritional supplement company Unicity has selected Thailand as the host destination for its upcoming 2022 Unicity Global Leadership & Innovation Conference.
To be held from August 5-7, 2022 at the IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center, the convention will be attended by more than 10,000 Unicity distributors from over 50 countries. There will also be post-event tours to Pattaya and Phuket, which in total, will generate some 660 million baht (US$18 million baht) for Thailand.
Supawan Teerarat, Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau’s (TCEB) senior vice president – MICE capability and innovation said in a press release that this will be the “largest corporate meeting and incentive travel group to visit Thailand since travel restrictions were lifted”.
To help bring the 2022 Unicity Global Leadership & Innovation Conference to Thailand, TCEB provided a partial subsidy and travel services. For example, Unicity executives and its pre-event conference teams will enjoy fast-track immigration clearance with TCEB’s MICE Lane Service at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport, and arrangements have also been made with Thai embassies and consulates abroad to facilitate visa applications by Unicity delegates in their home countries.
“As the Covid-19 situation abates and business travel and tourism resumes worldwide, we are mobilising our resources to attract more MICE events to Thailand. International corporations are confident that Thailand is ready to host events of all sizes because we have all the necessary controls and support in place. TCEB’s collaboration with various government departments and MICE organisations are bearing fruit – we are witnessing an upswing in corporate meetings and incentive groups coming to Thailand,” Supawan added.
Looking ahead, TCEB forecasts Thailand will host no less than 25 international corporate meetings and incentive travel groups from July 2022 to September 2022, which will contribute more than 1,000 million baht to the Thai economy. This includes 15,138 travellers from the key source markets of India, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, the UK, and Vietnam.
