AACVB to Headquarter in Thailand

November 25, 2013

The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) has outbid the likes of South Korea to establish the headquarters of the Asian Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus (AACVB) in Bangkok, effective from 1st January 2014.

Thailand’s selection was attributed to its excellent connection for business along with its strong relations to regionals organisations, including the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) and Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC).

AACVB was formed in 1983, where its eight member regions, including mainland China, Macau, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, exchange marketing-related information, develop business and promote mutual marketing opportunities.

Nopparat Maythaveekulchai, president of TCEB, said, “The proposal and judgment were completed in late October. This resulted in the association office’s relocation to Bangkok, Thailand, from 1 January 2014 onwards, after its 30-year basing in Macau since the day the association was founded.”
