Wedding Bells: Thailand to Host Amour Asia Pacific 2018

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) today announced that Thailand will host the first ever Amour Asia Pacific 2018, a luxury travel trade event that will cement the Kingdom’s reputation as the destination of choice for lovers and honeymooners from around the world. To be held from 14-17 February, 2018, at the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, Amour Asia Pacific 2018 will help spur continued growth of the elite romance travel market.

 

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor said “TAT is proud to support the Amour Asia Pacific 2018. We are confident it will help to underscore Thailand’s reputation as a world-class romance and honeymoon destination, building on the success of the Destination Wedding Planner Congress 2017, which we also hosted. As a leader in this sector, we will continue to increase our competitive advantage in the romance and honeymoon market by innovating to deliver the latest products and services that couples value, while providing opportunities for Thai operators to meet with sellers from across the globe through platforms; such as, the Amour Asia Pacific 2018.”

 

Thailand’s renowned reputation as a leading host for honeymoons and weddings helped the Kingdom attract 1.1 million international romance travellers in 2016, representing 3.37 percent of all international visitors, and generating 1.65 billion USD to the Thai economy (or approximately 1,500 USD per visitor, per trip).

 

Mr. Richard Barnes, CEO of Worldwide Events said “Thailand is truly at the heart of romance and honeymoon travel in Asia, so we are pleased to be able to showcase the plethora of products and services on offer for today’s discerning luxury romance traveler. The sector has seen tremendous growth, which has led to a demand for experience-based products that cater to a diverse range of interests; all of which will be on show at the Amour Asia Pacific 2018.”

 

The Amour Asia Pacific 2018 is a luxury travel trade event specifically designed for the elite romance travel market, including honeymoon curators, destination wedding planners and romance travel designers. Organised by Big Worldwide Limited, a leading international tourism promoter behind major events; such as, M&I Forums in 2016 (including Europe, the emerging markets, and the Americas), PRIVATE Luxury Forums in 2016 (the Americas and Europe), and the Amour Europe Forum 2016.

 

The Amour Asia Pacific 2018 will welcome 77 high-quality buyers including both Romance Travel Buyers and Destination Wedding Planners. The show will also feature 84 exhibitors, ranging from hotel and accommodation providers to destination management companies from across the Asia Pacific including 15 from Thailand including Destination Asia, The Siam Bangkok, Conrad Koh Samui, Rayavadee Krabi, Keemala Phuket, Amanpuri Phuket, Trisara Phuket, Belmond Napasai Koh Samui, Four Seasons Resorts Thailand, St Regis Bangkok, Marriott Marquis, Splendid Asia Holidays, Nikki Beach Koh Samui, Anantara Group, and Como Point Yamu.

 

As a co-host, TAT will ensure that Thailand’s gracious hospitality is extended to every delegate, from providing seamless on-ground transportation, to engaging networking activities, and an exclusive gala dinner and after party at the Nai Lert Park Heritage Home. As a TAT partner, Thailand Elite (Thailand Privilege Card) will welcome delegates on arrival, provide fast-track immigration services, and offer access to a Welcome Lounge.

 

To enrich the delegates’ experience and offer them a glimpse in to the various shades of Thai heritage and culture, TAT is also hosting pre- and post-tour activities. Pre-tour activities include a Thai Boxing Class – The Legend Thai Boxing, a Thai Cooking Class at the Blue Elephant Cooking School, a Bangkok Food Tour – Historic Bang Rak Food Tasting and Culture Tour, a tour of Khlong Bang Luang (Royal Barge Museum + Baan Silapin), and a tour of Rattanakosin Island. Ensuring guests will leave Thailand with memories to last a lifetime, TAT’s post-tour trips are to the island paradises of Krabi and Ko Samui, two of Thailand’s key wedding and honeymoon destinations.
