Royal Cliff Hotels Group welcomes Chinese MICE Buyers FAM Group to Thailand

The “Believe in Thailand” campaign launched by Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) involves a series of roadshows and familiarization trips, as well as regional branding campaign for the Thailand MICE industry. Launched last year and running through 2011, this campaign forms an important part of the Bureau’s efforts to gain global recognition for Thailand’s MICE Industry and the ability to host events of any nature. This project also involves the backing and assistance the Bureau receives from selected supporting sectors in the industry. In this capacity, the Royal Cliff Hotels Group recently welcomed 17 top Chinese MICE buyers and TCEB representatives for a site inspection of the property.

Leading this familiarization group was Mr. Atiwat Khunasinpitiphon, General Manager of Golden Lion Express Co. Ltd. The group was warmly greeted on arrival by Royal Cliff Hotels Group’s Managing Director, Mrs. Panga Vathanakul and Executive Director, Mr. Vitanart Vathanakul. After a brief introduction, participants were entertained to lunch at Larn Thong & Terrace – Authentic Thai Tradition, the hotel’s Thai restaurant which offered the participants a glance into the grace and charm of old Siam, but with a touch of modernity in both ambiance and cuisine.

Mr. Vathanakul then led the group on a familiarization and site inspection of the Royal Cliff Hotels Group which is also home to Pattaya’s largest and best MICE venue, the Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Centre (PEACH).

Due to the group’s tight schedule while in Thailand, the participants did not have a chance to experience the Royal Cliff’s newly refurbished rooms and suites. Nevertheless, collectively the group was positively expressive on the hotel’s facilities, services and hospitality.
