The TCEB has awarded the Angsana Laguna Phuket resort with full Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) accreditation, continuing its continuous run of formal recognition for quality in this arena since it was first awarded the same certification three years ago.

Angsana Laguna Phuket has long maintained an excellent standard for its meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions areas. Its Angsana Ballroom 1 and 2 had first been given TMVS accreditation in 2015, and this recognition has now been renewed for another two-year period. Three additional meeting rooms – Anchan, Orchid and Tabak – were also certified by the same organisation in 2017, for a period lasting until 2019. Currently, the beachfront resort has the most number of meeting rooms that are TMVS-certified in Phuket, and by 2020 all 11 meeting rooms will be TMVS-certified.

The two ballrooms can accommodate up to 350 guests. With a 6.6-metre ceiling, the space is ideal for conferences, product launches, themed dinners and more. Anchan and Orchid Room can similarly be combined into a daylight 120sqm location for large meetings or private celebrations. Tabak Room is also a daylight 60-sqm meeting space perfect for executive meetings.

Michal Zitek, Area General Manager of Angsana Laguna Phuket, commented, “This award represents a great deal of effort at all levels of our organisation, and another big step forward for Thai hospitality on the world stage,” he said. “It signals to the business world that Thailand is capable of hosting events at an international standard.”

The Angsana’s TMVS accreditations follow a detailed submission and official on-site inspections.

“To have five meeting rooms certified by the official government body is a terrific achievement for the resort, and for myself as director,” said the resort’s MICE & Events Director, Watcharapong Saikaew.

“Apart from having certified meeting venues, we are investing in having event management team certified by internationally renowned MICE organisations. With expectation by end of 2018, Angsana will have the team that holding three major certifications which are CMP (Certified Meeting Professional), CIS (Certified Incentive Specialist) and CEM (Certified Exhibition Management). This will make Angsana Laguna Phuket the first and only venue in Thailand that has acquired all three major certifications on MICE,” he said.

Mr Saikaew himself has been individually honoured as the first Thai citizen to receive the industry standard Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) Certification.

Meanwhile, the Kata Sea Breeze Resort has been awarded the TMVS for its Sea Sky Conference Room, hence opening up a new market for the resort now being able to be showcased worldwide as a three-star-plus international MICE venue.

Rutchaneegorn Chalayondeja, Group Director of Business development of the AKSARA Collection, was present to receive the award from Tourism & Sports Minister Weerasak Kowsurat during the award ceremony held recently at the BITEC Bangna event centre in Bangkok.

The Sea Sky Conference Room of Kata Sea Breeze Resort boasts 330 square meters of meeting space for conferences and banquet functions. Located on the fifth floor, the Sea Sky Conference Room overlooks the resorts gardens and pools with both open air and air conditioned options.

In gaining the TVMS accreditation, the Angsana Laguna Phuket and the Kata Sea Breeze resorts join the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa and the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort as Phuket resorts forging ahead in the MICE industry. (See stories here and here.)
