The Women’s World Summit 2022 hosted in Thailand will take place from June 23 to 25 in Bangkok, will host more than 1,000 participants from around the world.
The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), headed by Senior Vice President Nichapa Yoswee, made the release with Irene Natividad, chairwoman of the Women’s World Summit, Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, chairman of Thailand’s host committee, and Siripakorn Chiosamut, deputy governor for marketing communications and director of marketing at the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
The World Women’s Summit 2022 will be the first major international event held in Thailand after a two-year interruption due to the health crisis. The Summit is also an interesting showcase to present the kingdom as a suitable destination to host world-class events after the easing of travel regulations in the last three months.
The TCEB vice president stated that the summit represents not only the national strategy as expressed in Thailand’s 12th National Economic and Social Development Plan, but also the tenacity and economic contribution of the country’s MICE industry. The agency expects 1,000 participants and leaders from 60 countries to attend this highly regarded world-class convention, which is predicted to produce up to 80 million baht in income.
The TCEB noted that even with the Covid 19 health crisis, the MICE industry in Thailand produced more than 33.2 billion baht in income last year, creating over 46,000 jobs. In addition to the 23 other TCEB-supported international events scheduled for 2022, the annual APEC Economic Leaders Meeting, planned for November 18-19, 2022 in Bangkok, will be another event that will put Thailand in the international spotlight.
According to the organization, this year’s theme, “Women: Creating Opportunities in the New Reality” will also include a highlight on leading the post-pandemic economy.
In addition, the Women’s World Summit 2022 in Thailand is distinguished by its “carbon neutral” format. The carbon footprint of all summit meetings and activities will be monitored. Emissions related to energy consumption, participant travel, catering and waste management will be balanced through the purchase of carbon credits from the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Project.
