The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) has unveiled a new support scheme to help organisers of international tradeshows in Thailand get back to business in the wake of Covid-19.
Exhibition is a new campaign designed to help international organisers and
their clients gain all they can from their exhibition experience in Thailand.
It seeks to limit disruption to event creation and management by supporting
both online and offline services through four core values, ease-up, experience,
enhance and empower.
The campaign incorporates and expands on previous initiatives including the ASEAN+6 Privilege programme, now extended to include oversea MICE travel agents; and the Exhibiz in Market campaign, which has been made available to one more player, exhibition sales agents.
“TCEB’s e-themed quartet of promotions have been designed to introduce domestic talent and enterprise, aid with international and regional promotion and mitigate the disruption caused by Covid-19’s impact on international events”, said Mrs. Nichapa Yoswee, TCEB senior vice president – business. Ease Up supports the recruitment of domestic participants, reduces minimum size of events and lowers the criteria in the physical attendance of international participants, while promoting remote international participation through international marketing assistance. This has been achieved by revising ASEAN+6 Privilege and Exhibiz in Market campaigns, in addition to raising fixed financial subsidy of up to 25 per cent for both local and overseas marketing across all event sizes.

international business events in Thailand, TCEB is promoting target industries,
supporting exhibitions with strong potential to expand industries relating to
Thailand 4.0, logistics and infrastructure, as well as those identified by the
government as post-Covid-19 focus industries. These include future automotive;
robotics and automation; medical hub; food processing; defence/disaster and
pandemic management, many of which industries have a localised presence in Thailand’s
high-profile industrial infrastructure, such as the Eastern Economic Corridor.
Apart from that, partnership with the airlines will grant additional privileges for local and international participants.
The Empower component of TCEB’s new campaign is designed to engage government collaboration by easing regulations, facilitating growth and giving regional industry a boost through pavilions at trade shows in Thailand.
TCEB is doing the utmost to ensure new shows are being developed with a commitment to local service providers and an incubation programme designed to support and propel Thai entrepreneurs.

Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
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.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
Most exhibitors want to attract as much traffic as possible. The largest continuous space of an exhibition stand can be actively used for this purpose: A photorealistic floor is a design option that fulfils several functions at once.
