In line with a continuous growth in tourists visiting Thailand, the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) said it expects 940,000 business travellers in 2013 that would bring a revenue of around $2.8 billion.

In 2012, Thailand welcomed 895,224 business travellers, who contributed revenue of $2.5 billion, the TCEB said. The country organised 7,382 business events, 33 per cent of which were conventions, 25 per cent corporate meetings, 24 per cent incentives and 18 per cent exhibitions, according to the bureau.

Around 65 per cent of the business travellers to Thailand in 2012 came from Asia, followed by Europe (11 per cent), US (6 per cent), Oceania (4 per cent) and other regions (14 per cent).

Thailand is a sought-after conference destination with many internationally renowned exhibitions in the sectors of travel, automotive, food and jewellery, with the two largest venues being the Impact Center in Muang Thong Thai and the Queen Sirikit Center in Klong Toey.
