PHUKET, THAILAND – The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has won the “Best Island Resort for MICE” in the 2016 China Travel & Meetings Industry Awards – Business Travel & MICE. The awards ceremony, hosted by M&C China, Northstar Travel Group, took place in Beijing, Sept. 6, 2016.
Since its debut in 2002, China Travel & Meetings Industry Awards, organized by Travel Weekly China, have recognized the best enterprises in China’s travel, meeting and incentive industry.
The Similan Ballroom in the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort opened in 2014. It has since attracted a large variety of meetings and conferences from across Asia and China.
“Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort is committed to MICE excellence,” said Elaine Wang, China marketing representative, for Outrigger Resorts who accepted the award on behalf of Outrigger. “The high-end technical support and variety of meeting spaces allow Outrigger in Phuket to extend its unique passion for meetings and team building to event organizers around the world,” she said.
Open since April 2013, the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort occupies a prime position between a tropical lagoon and the sparkling waters of the Andaman Sea. The Similan Ballroom and three meeting rooms position Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort as one of the best medium-sized meeting facilities, not just in Phuket and Thailand, but in Southeast Asia.
Conference guests benefit from a range of high-end, in-house AV equipment and technical support that ensure high-quality productions. A few steps away, the setting is perfect for a variety of events outdoors. Extensive gardens and a peaceful beachfront create inspirational settings for team-building activities and outdoor banquets.
In addition, the greater resort community of Laguna Phuket offers the 18-hole Laguna Golf Club, award-winning spas, land excursions and sea tours to the Andaman Sea as well as more than 30 restaurants and bars. The Outrigger property is a 20-minute road transfer from Phuket International Airport.
