TCEB and Philippines’ business associations sign partnership agreement

News this week: The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) and Chamber of Commerce of the Philippine Islands (CCPI).

The MoU aims to further improve trade promotion and expand the MICE industries between the two countries. According to TCEB, the Philippines was ranked ninth last year in terms of numbers of MICE visitors to business events in Thailand – accounting for 16,745 MICE visitors in total. TCEB expects this figure to grow by a further 10% in 2013.

Apart from promotional activities in the Philippines, TCEB will also offer a special incentive programme, ‘100 A-HEAD’, for Philippine-based trade promoters to visit trade exhibitions in Thailand. So far this year, Thailand has welcomed a number of MICE visitors from the Philippines in several exhibitions including VIV Asia, ISRMAX Asia, THAIFEX, Food Ingredient Asia and TFBO & TRAFS.
