BANGKOK, Aug 30, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - The annual Hospital Management Asia (HMA) will be held at the Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok on September 12 & 13, 2013. 842 delegates are already confirmed to attend HMA, and OVER 900 are expected. Moreover, 69 confirmed world-class speakers from 18 countries are set to make presentations in HMA this year.
TCEB was instrumental in putting the HMA - MFT package together, providing incentives to make it all happen. Mr. Nopparat Maythaveekulchai, President of TCEB emphasizes that, "TCEB support for the Hospital Management Asia 2013 represents our initiative to make Thailand a connection point for business events' success in Asia. In line with government's policy to position Thailand as a medical hub of the region, TCEB's strong support for the Hospital Management Asia 2013 will reaffirm Thailand as a preferred destination in the region for the well-regarded international conferences."
"In addition, the show participants will be able to experience world-class facilities, five-star accommodations, and a breadth of popular tourist attractions that Thailand can offer. Thailand's MICE industry has been growing strongly in recent years. MICE travelers from Asia have been largely responsible for this strong growth, representing 65 % of all MICE travelers in 2012. The annual Hospital Management Asia along with other flagship business events held in Thailand will help drive us to achieve our target for 2013," Mr. Nopparat added.
