Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 7 January 2010

IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center, Muang Thong Thani (Thailand), has reported that advance bookings for event spaces in 2010 already amount to 40% of the total spaces available.

Mr. Paul Kanjanapas, Managing director of IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd., said, Based on the advance bookings of our event spaces, we are confident that we can match and even surpass the total number of events that took place at IMPACT in 2009. IMPACT provided exhibition and convention spaces for over 800 events, attracting around 15 million Thai and foreign visitors.

Another positive indicator is the increase in the number of bookings for consumer fairs for 2010 when compared to 2009, signaling a return of consumer confidence. Although the number of advance bookings for trade exhibitions for 2010 remains at the same level as those in 2009, we expect the figures will soon improve in line with the global economic recovery, given no further setbacks occur of course.

Despite a projected slow economic recovery in 2010, Mr. Paul said, The impact is expected to be short-term, and this confidence has led us to invest 2,000 million baht developing a four-star hotel aimed at providing convenience for exhibitors and visitors. This is part of our plan to become a complete one-stop-service MICE destination in Thailand and Asia. The hotel will complement our offerings of event space rentals, sales and marketing services for events, consultancy services for organizing new events, as well as public relations services on existing and new events and to reach out to new group of customers.
