THE FASTEST-GROWING REGION OF INCENTIVE TRAVEL

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

The legendary hospitality of Thailand has long been a popular choice for meetings and events in Southeast Asia. Its vibrant capital, Bangkok, is a top international conference destination, and its first-class meeting venues are renowned for their outstanding service. Bangkok is easy to get to, thanks to the new Suvarnabhumi International Airport; opened in 2006, the airport handles over 40 million passengers per year from most major cities in North America, Asia, and Europe, and connects to the city via electric rail, bypassing Bangkok’s traffic jams. The Don Mueang International Airport, located about 30 minutes north of the city, also serves as a major Bangkok travel hub.
