Thailand's hospitality is legendary and today is making a name as a business destination due to its economic and geographic position within the vibrant ASEAN market. Bangkok is an increasingly popular choice for conferences meetings and corporate events in Southeast Asia as it offers high-end venues with spas, golf courses, conferencing facilities, and award-winning restaurants. It comes as no surprise that more and more event planners choose Bangkok as a place to hold all kinds of events such as conventions, exhibitions, product launches, offsite meetings, workshops, training sessions, and company parties. Suvarnabhumi Airport is one of the best-connected airports in the world and visitors can obtain a VISA on arrival for up to ninety days. The airport has 26 different custom checkpoints and 130 passport checkpoints for incoming business travelers, which means that the wait time is very short. To avoid traffic into the city center, many business travelers choose to take the Airport Rail Link with trains available every five to ten minutes.
A large population of 67 million people, increasing consumerism and a highly qualified and skilled labor force, Thailand was ranked the fifth friendliest place to do business in Asia in 2014. Thailand is the second largest consumer market in Southeast Asia. Bangkok has a growing middle class that can spend on household necessities but also on leisure activities and luxuries. There is also strong growth in e-commerce with steadily improving internet infrastructure, and high penetration of mobile Internet have attracted global e-commerce players to Bangkok.
Delegates will enjoy shopping trips, dinner cruises on the Chao Phraya River or visits to the Grand Palace as well as the Wat Arun and Wat Phra Kaew temples during their downtime. The food in Bangkok is nothing short of amazing and delicious. Business travelers will find that exploring the streets of Bangkok during their break during the day or after a full day of meetings is the perfect way to relax and see the city from different viewpoints.
Suvarnabhumi Airport is the main international airport located approximately 30km East of Bangkok. An express train link service, Airport Rail Link, links the city center at Phaya Thai with Suvarnabhumi Airport in under 30 minutes. A taxi ride from the airport to the city centre ranges from 300-500 THB.
