The Center of Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), Thailand’s government’s body overseeing disease control measures and COVID-19 policies, has approved TCEB’s proposal to allow MICE events to be held under “COVID Free Setting” protocols, effective October 16. 

 

The approval follows the government’s announcement on October 11 that fully vaccinated overseas visitors will be allowed to enter Thailand without having to serve quarantine from November 1. The reopening will begin with a list of countries the CCSA considers low-risk, such as the US, UK, China, Germany and Singapore. Also announced were shortened curfew hours, fewer provinces categorised as maximum controlled and strict zone where stringent controls are mandatory for gatherings, and allowing domestic flights to operate at full capacity.

 

The approval of TCEB’s MICE proposal was the result of the collaboration between TCEB, Department of Health, Department of Disease Control of The Ministry of Public Health, and 23 partner organisations, such as Tourism Authority of Thailand, Thai Chamber of Commerce, Thai Exhibition Association, Business Creative and Event Management Association, and Thai Hotels Association. With the green light, organisers of meetings, trade fairs, and festivals can now proceed to plan events with more attendees that will stimulate the broader economy.

The acronym 'MICE' stands for 'Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions'. MICE is used to refer to a particular type of tourism in which large groups, usually planned well in advance, are brought together for some particular purpose.

What goes up must come down...

Thailand at the forefront in promoting pollution.

A spectacular event to promote Thailand but ignore the clean-up as all the rubbish falls out of sight in someone else's parish.

AKA dirty weekends.  The 'particular purpose' being inebriation & extra-marital affairs.

As a business man, I find MICE extremely useful to view comprehensive range of new products under one roof. MICE brought in almost USD7 billion pre-covid and employed thousands. I am delighted with the news.

Thank you for explaining that.

 

But if the countries they all come from all put up the same stupid Thailand law like you have to be in the country you leave for 21 days previously then those meetings and conventions are going to be disastrous or extremely long !

 

Imagine if all countries put up Thailand 21 day laws, Thailand would be devoid of all tourism of under 20 days LOL
