News this week: The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) recently launched a scheme to promote Thai exhibitions to potential Laotian exhibitors and visitors. TCEB organised a seminar to raise awareness of opportunities at Thai exhibitions. The seminar was held at the Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LNCCI) last month.
TCEB has been working with the LNCCI since 2011 when the two organisations signed an MOU designed to promote participation between the two countries. This initiative is part of TCEB’s increased focus on the ASEAN region – following slowing economic growth in Europe and the growing importance of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).
TCEB’s aim is to continue to build Thailand’s position as a centre of exhibitions and trade in the ASEAN region. Greater numbers of ASEAN exhibitors allows international visitors to access products and services from around the region. Approximately, 280,000 international visitors attend Thai exhibitions each year.
