The Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre
AFTER 14 consecutive sessions held in Bangkok, the annual Thailand Travel Mart Plus (TTM+) will be relocated to Chiang Mai next year.
It will be held between June 8 to 10, 2016, at the Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre (CMECC), bearing the theme Smile with Us.
Yuthasak Supasorn, governor, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), said: “The time is right for TTM+ to be moved to another location. Chiang Mai is perfectly suited because it is the closest Thai city to our neighbours in the greater mekong subregion (GMS) with a new convention centre and superb hotel facilities to accommodate all the guests.”
“The emergence of Myanmar as a major tourism destination, plus the improving transportation connectivity in the GMS will further enhance the appeal of the entire area, giving buyers and media a chance to explore the many emerging new products and services.”
Registration for buyers and exhibitors is open from now till March 15, 2016. The fee for hosted buyers is US$300, for foreign non-hosted buyers $200 and local non-hosted delegates $100. On-site registration costs $150.
Registration fee for exhibitors costs 30,000 baht (US$834) for early bird participants who sign up before February 15, 2016. After which, rates will rise to 35,000 baht.
