Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort earns official MICE accreditation
RELEASE NUMBER 37|18
PHUKET, THAILAND – The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has passed all systems tests to earn official Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) accreditation. The inclusion, effective immediately, followed a detailed submission and on-site inspections by the Thai government’s MICE Capabilities Development department.
Outrigger’s area director for sales and marketing for Thailand, Rory Campbell, received the accreditation on behalf of the resort at an awards ceremony for recipients organized by the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) in Bangkok April 27.
“With TMVS accreditation, our sophisticated Similan Ballroom MICE setup at the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has been officially recognized as among the best in Thailand,” said Campbell. “We will now proudly take that message to event organizers who are seeking to create meaningful and rewarding corporate events in Phuket.”
The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau created the TMVS system to give accredited venues a competitive edge and ensure sustainable growth in an increasingly competitive international MICE sector.
TMVS applies ISO quality standards in food safety, security systems, energy management and the administration of sustainable events. Physical, technological and service delivery standards have to be met before TMVS accreditation is awarded.
The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort opened its Similan Ballroom and breakout spaces in 2014. It is now among the leading mid-scale event spaces in Southeast Asia.
“Since opening, our commitment to our MICE clients has been underpinned by the support of a dedicated events team for each meeting,” said Tony Pedroni, the general manager at the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort. “Our Outrigger hosts in Phuket work with clients to deliver inspirational Thai service that matches our acclaimed MICE setup and the amazing beachside location.”
Pedroni said that the Outrigger in Phuket prides itself on delivering high-spec facilities at events designed with a unique Thai twist.
The Outrigger offers the Similan Ballroom (716sqm, 2350 sq ft), the Tongfah (158sqm, 518 sq ft) and the Tawan and Talay breakout rooms at 77sqm (253 sq ft) each.
Event attendees benefit from a range of high-end in-house AV equipment and technical support. The four meeting spaces feature free Wi-Fi, natural daylight, dedicated technical support, an event and catering team, and state-of-the-art audio visual and conference amenities.
The Similan Ballroom can comfortably host executive conferences of up to 350 delegates in theatre-style and 290 guests banquet-style. Extensive gardens and a peaceful beachfront create inspirational settings for teambuilding activities and outdoor banquets.
