BANGKOK, May 11, 2018 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has selected Pattaya as the host city for this year’s ‘Thailand Travel Mart Plus Amazing Gateway to the Greater Mekong Subregion’ (TTM+), positioning the event in a new light as the country’s travel sector continues to grow from strength to strength.
Mrs. Srisuda Wananpinyosak, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing – Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas, said: “The TAT is proud to bring the TTM back to Pattaya, one of the country’s most popular travel destinations for both domestic and overseas travellers. This year’s event will showcase luxurious and romantic travel around the Kingdom under our ‘Million Shades of Romance’ promotion.”
The TAT has chosen the Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Pattaya for this year’s TTM+ to create a unique platform during three days of business meetings and fun with travel colleagues.
“After years of meeting indoor, we are ‘opening to the new shades’ of business experience against the beautiful backdrop of the Gulf of Thailand, Mrs. Srisuda said. “The TTM+ 2018 will continue to promote Thailand’s important features, from its rich culture and history to beautiful natural attractions and variety of amenities and accommodation. All combined it makes Thailand an outstanding destination where luxurious, romantic dreams come true.”
The Ocean Marina Yacht Club was chosen as the venue given its capability to hold large events, having hosted over 6,000 visitors at its 2017 boat show last November. Organising the TTM+ 2018 at a marina also supports the Thai government’s push to position Thailand as Asia’s premier sailing and superyacht destination targeting high net worth individuals.
