BIE inspection of Phuket for Expo 2028


Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), in partnership with Phuket City and Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health, welcomed nine Enquiry Mission Members from Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the governing body of World Expos.

They were as guests of the Thai Government from 24-29 July 2022 on their inspection trip to Bangkok and Phuket to evaluate the Phuket’s candidacy to host Expo 2028 Phuket Thailand.

Should Phuket be selected, the island would be the first city in ASEAN to host world-class expo. Themed “Future of Life: Living in Harmony, Sharing Prosperity”, Expo 2028 Phuket Thailand will take place from 20 March – 17 June 2028 on a site measuring 141 rai (22.56 hectares) at the northern tip of Phuket island known as Mai Khao Beach. TCEB is projecting a minimum of 7 million expo visitation and a revenue of 50 billion baht for Thailand. The Expo is an opportunity to raise the quality of life for residents of the province by accelerating infrastructural development for transport, healthcare, and tourism. 

Mr. Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, President of TCEB said: “Representing the Thai government, TCEB had worked with Phuket in the preparation for the bid to host Specialised Expo 2028 since 2020. That initial expression of interest was followed by the first country presentation to BIE in June, when TCEB and Phuket shared Thailand’s vision for Expo 2028 Phuket at BIE’s headquarter in Paris. The recently concluded Enquiry Mission is an important next-step in the selection process of a host city. During their visit, the nine members of the Enquiry Mission met all related parties to determine the degree of support from national, provincial, and municipal authorities in the organisation of the Expo."

    New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
