Srinakarin Hall at Dusit Thani College is proud to announce its achievement in recently receiving the “Thailand MICE Venue Standard Certification” from the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) in MICE Standards Day 2021.
August 26, 2021, Bangkok: Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) issued Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) certifications to 194 venues across the country at its MICE Standards Day 2021. Certified Thai MICE operators now total 880, reflecting the country’s capability in providing services and safety of high standards.
Including in these certified operator is Srinakarin Hall at Dusit Thani College, and is one among them to receive this prestigious certification of quality. Srinakarin Hall can accommodate up to 300 guests. This large function room can be divided with partitions as required for a smooth and successful event, seminar, or small workshop. This dedicated venue is fully equipped with audio and visual technology. Professional banqueting is also available on site providing a dazzling themed event.
The 2021 edition of TCEB’s annual event took place on August 26 and was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Anutin Charnvirakul. According to Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayutthaya, President of TCEB, “TCEB is always committed to supporting venue operators to reach high standard of operations through the TMVS.
This is even more important considering the hardship caused by the pandemic and customer’s requirements for service and safety excellence. We are delighted to welcome 194 venues to the TMVS line-up this year. The investments they have made to gain certification will pay off as the world reopens for travel and business events.”
Despite the pandemic, venues continued to work with TCEB throughout 2020 to qualify for TMVS. This year’s newly-certified venues comprises of 169 hotels, 10 exhibition venues, and 15 special event venues, which are mostly located in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Chonburi and Prachuab Kirikhan.
The latest additions brings the total number of TMVS-certified venues in Thailand to 880 – that’s 809 hotels, 25 exhibition venues, and 46 special event venues. This year, 25 hotels and 3 exhibition venues were certified for the ASEAN MICE Venue Standard (AMVS).
Looking ahead, TCEB is gearing up to assess another 155 venues across the country in 2022 as well as to study the feasibility of introducing new standards to enhance the scope of MICE venue standards in general. Also on the agenda is deeper engagement with special event venues towards obtaining AMVS certification in order to boost their marketing reach beyond Thailand.
At the 2021 MICE Standards Day, TCEB also presented two virtual workshops. One was focused on organizing Muslim-friendly events while the other concentrated on managing food waste at MICE events.
When launched in 2014, TCEB’s TMVS was the first MICE standard programme of its kind in ASEAN. It has since been used as a frame of reference by MICE venues for continuous improvement. Certified venues are re-assessed every three years.
