TAT rolls out Good Host training for tourism suppliers
Bangkok, March 27, 2017
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has launched a Good Host Programme to raise awareness and hospitality standards among tourism stakeholders in the country.
The Good Host Programme provides extra training for public and private sector employees through seminars that impart new ways of improving tourism products and services. Knowledge sharing and practical training will also be used to teach participants on how to impress visitors and exceed their expectations about Thailand and its offerings.
Programme speakers include Thon Thamrongnawasawat who will talk about the preservation of Thailand’s natural environment and culture, and English expert Chris Wright who will talk about marketing communications and dos and don’ts for people in the tourism sector. Also making appearances at the event will be good Samaritans Vithit Duangjumpol and Chat Ubolchinda, who rescued foreign tourists stuck in thick river mud in Krabi.
Some 1,500 representatives from the public and private sectors across the country have been invited to join the Good Host Programme, which kicked off with a three-day training session last week at the Thammasat Rangsit Convention Centre, Thammasat University, Rangsit Campus.
