Phuket province has received over a million public votes in favour of its application to hold Specialized Expo 2028, increasing its prospects of being chosen as the host venue.
According to Deputy Government Spokeswoman Tipanan Sirichana, if Thailand is granted the event, which will be held under the theme “Future of Life: Living in Harmony, Sharing Prosperity,” it is estimated to draw at least 7 million foreign tourists and produce at least 50 billion baht in income. Furthermore, the event would position Thailand as a leading worldwide wellness vacation destination.
Thailand will compete with the United States, Argentina, Serbia, and Spain for the privilege to host the tournament.
According to Tipanan, Phuket has gotten many good assessments for its tourist preparation and was rated third in Travel & Leisure’s 2022 Best Islands in Southeast Asia list for accessibility.
