THE FASTEST-GROWING INCENTIVE DESTINATION

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.

*ACI Europe Airport Connectivity (higher is better) is based on the SEO NetScan connectivity model, which measures airport connectivity in a more comprehensive way. It measures the number and quality of direct/non-stop connections as well as indirect connections via other airports. The NetScan model brings the most relevant connection components of every single market (frequency, travel time, connecting time) together into a single indicator: the Airport Connectivity Index. Find out more at www.aci-europe.org.
