The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau TCEB is moving forward to promote Thailand MICE Venue Standards (TMVS) and Thailand Sustainable Event Management Standard (TSEMS), accelerating hygiene safety practices. The endorsement sign is used as the affirmation that the venue, convention centre, exhibition building, hotel, resort, as well as private and public venues operating with this sign are appropriate according to international MICE standards, thus assuring domestic and international MICE travellers of the quality of Thailand's MICE entrepreneurs.
Currently, TMVS-certified premises are divided into 3 categories, comprising 1,299 rooms in 341 venues in the Meeting Room category, 28 halls in 15 venues in the Exhibition Venue category and 59 holding areas in 55 venues in the Special Event Venue category. The goal is that the number of certified venues in 3 categories will increase by 120 venues in 2022.Furthermore, there are premises certified with the ASEAN MICE Venue Standards or AMVS, comprising 91 venues in the Meeting Room category and 5 halls in the Exhibition Venue category. The goal is that the number of certified venues in these 2 categories will increase by 20 venues in 2022.
„MICE standards are important elements that contribute to competitive advantages.“
Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, president of TCEB, said "Considering the post-COVID-19 consumer needs, it is normal to see people essentially remain concerned in hygiene and safety against the pandemic. Meanwhile, the global MICE industry has a tendency to give attention to business operations with social and environmental concerns, as well as economic dimension. Therefore, MICE standards are important elements that contribute to competitive advantages of MICE businesses. They also emphasise our goal to expedite Thailand towards becoming a global leader in the MICE industry."www.businesseventsthailand.com/en/index
