Only a handful of destinations tick all the boxes of an ideal place to meet, innovate and collaborate, and Thailand is one of them. The identity, cuisine, culture, hospitality, range of activities and experiences are all unique to the land of smiles, coupled with a plethora of venues and accommodations as well as connectivity and intellectual capital.
“Such a great variety is not just in Bangkok, which is the most common city where lots of meetings and events are held. There a lot of other really interesting cities such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket and all the other islands, so you’re really spoilt for choice,” says Forssell.
