Phuket, Thailand – Angsana Laguna Phuket has been recognised by the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) for its outstanding services in providing MICE facilities of the highest standard. Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau ( TCEB ) has awarded the resort with full Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS) accreditation, continuing the resort’s 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 exhibition areas. The 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 12 meeting rooms will be TMVS-certified.
The two ballrooms can accommodate up to 350 guests. With a 6.6-metre ceiling and an excellent atmosphere, the space is ideal for conferences, product launches, themed dinners and more. Anchan and Orchid Room can similarly be combined into a daylight superb 120-sqm location for large meetings or private celebrations. Tabak Room is also a daylight 60-sqm meeting space perfect for executive meetings.
“This award represents a great deal of commitment and dedication to MICE excellence across all levels of our organisation, and another big step forward for Thai hospitality on the world stage,” said Michal Zitek, Area General Manager of Angsana Laguna Phuket. “It signals to the business world that Angsana Laguna Phuket is prepared and is capable of hosting events at an international standard.”
The TMVS accreditations follow a detailed submission and official on-site inspections. Attaining this standard reflects the resort’s commitment to providing world-class MICE services, as overseen by the Director of MICE Mr Watcharapong Saikaew. “To have five meeting rooms certified by the official government body is a terrific achievement for the resort, and for myself as director. Apart from having certified meeting venues, we are investing in having Angsana’s event management team certified by internationally renowned MICE organizations. Angsana currently has a team holding 3 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.
Angsana Laguna Phuket has a total of 10 meeting rooms, in addition to a selection of team-building activities. The resort is also the site of XANA Beach Club, which can host outdoor events of up to 2,000 people. With 371 luxury rooms to choose from, Angsana has ample accommodation for groups of virtually any size. Its setting by the quiet shores of Bang Tao Bay, with its scenic lagoon and golf course easily accessible, help make Angsana Laguna Phuket one of the most celebrated resorts in Thailand.
New to Angsana Laguna Phuket will be the 1,500sq.m Angsana Convention and Exhibition Space (ACES) that will be launched in September 2019. The ACES project is also complying with the benchmarks of TMVS and shall be applying for this certification once it is officially launched later this year.
