Chiang Mai is set to host the 2023 edition of Routes Asia, the only
route development event dedicated to the Asia Pacific region.
Routes Asia, which is held in a different location each year, brings
together airlines, airports, and tourism authorities to discuss air
service strategy and future networks.
Next year's Routes Asia, taking place from 14 to 16 February 2023, is
expected to facilitate and drive recovery and future growth for Asia's
air route networks.
Speaking at this year’s Routes Asia, Steven Small, director of
Routes, said: “Substantial and continuous infrastructure development,
together with state-of-the-art conference facilities, have positioned
Chiang Mai as a premier MICE centre destination, making it the perfect
location for Routes Asia 2023.”
Chiang Mai, the largest city and cultural heartland of Northern
Thailand, is emerging as a preferred destination for international
conferences and exhibitions, ranging from small events to conferences
with over 8,000 delegates.
The city is served by Chiang Mai International Airport, which
welcomed almost 74,041 flights and more than 9.98 million passengers
annually prior to the pandemic.
