The Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) has
received the Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) award for the sixth
year running, in addition to joining the Kingdom's MICE Hygiene campaign
as part of moves to welcome organisers "back to normalcy", following
Thailand's international reopening on 1 November.
Introduced in 2014 to accredit business venues that have met
international standards in safety, technology, service, and
environmental management, the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau
Public Organization (TCEB) has plans to assess at least 155 venues for
TMVS across the country in 2022.
This is on top of 194 venues nationwide as TMVS-certified venues — of
which 10 are exhibition premises, 15 are special event venues and the
rest hotels, as recorded at 26 August's 'MICE Standards Day 2021'.
“Since 2015, we have been awarded certification badges by TCEB. The
awards demonstrate our efforts to develop the centre. This year, we
received two awards for our meeting rooms and exhibition halls. These
exemplify our willingness to welcome organisers and visitors back to
normalcy," said Chakkrin Angprateep, Sales Director, BITEC.
These said efforts extend also to Covid-safe measures, such as
BITEC's participation in the Kingdom's MICE Hygiene programme — which
details protocols for pre- during- and post events.

BITEC's Managing Director, Panittha Buri said, "BITEC has always
followed the government policies to prevent the spread of Covid-19
strictly since the first wave in 2020. Apart from strengthening measures
and adjusting the service requirements to be in line with the current
policy, BITEC has requested employees to participate in online training
sessions on hygiene and service quality control to ensure the safety of
exhibitors and visitors."
