Thailand treats Belgium buyers to true incentive experiences

Travelling with an intimate group of Belgium buyers from Bangkok to Krabi shows Santhiti Arunsit the perfect mix of elements needed for a memorable incentive experience.


Earlier this year, Thailand turned its focus towards Belgium as a potential source market for business events. Leveraging Thai Airways-operated direct flights to and from Brussels, the Thailand Incentive and Convention Association (TICA), together with the support of the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), created a unique and intimate familiarisation experience for six potential incentive and event buyers from Belgium. It comprised of two nights in Bangkok followed by four nights in Krabi, with local destination management company (DMC) Stream Events Asia managing all ground services for the group.

“Several international organisations and associations are located in Brussels, and with direct flights operated by Thai Airways, we believe it is a potential market for Thailand,” said Prapaphan Sungmuang, general manager of TICA.
