“The Phuket Hotels Association is proud to support the development of local communities, and our annual benefits are a vitally important part of our fundraising activities,” said Phuket Hotels Association’s president, Anthony Lark. “I would like to thank all of our supporters, sponsors and guests for creating such a memorable occasion. This year, the money raised from the PHAB will pay for scholarships for 20 local youngsters to embark on careers in the hospitality industry. This is a wonderful way of creating income for local people and families, creating multi-generational benefits for communities, and supporting our member hotels by developing exciting new industry talent.”

Now in its second year, the PHAB has quickly become a catalyst for unity in the Phuket hospitality sector – a rallying call for the industry to focus on re-investment into the island.

 Phuket Hotels Association members donated an impressive array of travel and tourism prizes which were auctioned at the event, ranging from international holidays to local experiences in and around Phuket.

PHAB 3, the third annual Phuket Hotels Association Benefit, will take place on 27 April 2019.
