Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (Public Organization) or TCEB is moving forward to leverage MICE venues to achieve ASEAN venue standards. Highlighting the role of Thailand as the leader of regional MICE standard development, TCEB has a high hope to equalise regional venue standards  in regard to compete on a global scale. In 2016, ASEAN agreed to use Thailand’s MICE venue standard as ASEAN venue standards. Consequently, member countries have begun to implement the standards in meetings room category. Mr. Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, President of TCEB, disclosed that this year, TCEB, as the representative of Thailand, has continued to empower Thai MICE industry on ASEAN stage, and have prepared to propose the direction of standardisation for Exhibition Venue category under ASEAN MICE Venue Standards - AMVS at the meeting held  during 13-15 September 2018, at Centara Grand at CentralWorld. “Key message of the meeting is a discussion on drafting ASEAN MICE Venue Standards in Exhibition Venue category. TCEB is determined to provoke agreement on the draft of AMVS from the working group for which will be developed further as ASEAN venue standards. Definitely, this will enable Thailand and fellow ASEAN countries to compete on a global scale”. ASEAN has accepted TMVS as part of ASEAN standards, and assigned Thailand to host the working group on the drafting of ASEAN MICE Venue Standards together with 9 other member countries working under ASEAN’s main working group known as ASEAN Tourist Professional Monitoring Committee (ATPMC).
