The Path to global
TCEB is challenging Thai MICE players to aim
for international standards in their operations,
particularly in energy saving, food safety,
contingency planning and sustainability, as it
shows Thailand cares for its clients’ business
events. MICE Capabilities Development
provides extensive support and resources to
enable MICE stakeholders reach optimum
operational levels.
  • Standards for MICE Sector
    The Ministry of Labour has agreed to define the standard of skills required for many positions in the MICE industry. The MICE Capabilities Development department will initiate training programmes to enable MICE personnel to gain certification for those positions and list them on the TCEB website to encourage international event organisers to employ skilled Thai workers.
  • Engineering Resilience
    TCEB pioneered the MICE Security Management System (MSMS) in 2009 to encourage the development of viable contingency plans to cover any emergency and ensure continuity of MICE events. Thailand’s major event venues – Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), IMPACT Convention & Exhibition Center, Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Hall (PEACH) and Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) – are MSMS certified, a factor that has helped to win international bids.
  • Energy-Smart with ISO50001
    Thailand is leading the way in emphasising energy conservation in our MICE operations, leading to cost savings of up to 20 per cent for event organisers. The MICE Capabilities Development department provides strong support and resources to en able Thai MICE operators to become accredited by the ISO 50001 Energy Management System, which outlines technical and managerial strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve environmental performance.
  • Beyond Taste; Increasing Appetites for Global Food Standards
    Thailand’s renowned cuisine, fresh ingredients and culinary prowess are a major attraction for international event participants. To assure visitors that the food they eat is of the highest quality, MICE Capabilities Development is pushing the industry to acquire the highest food safety certification. Many already have GMP and HACCP certificates. However, our goal is to push for ISO 22000, the global standard and food management system for the whole food chain.
Business Continuity for MICE industry with ISO 22301
Incident can disrupt a business at any time and implementing ISO 22301 will make sure that business can react and maintain its operations. Incidents take many forms ranging from large scale natural disasters and acts of terror to technology-related accidents and environmental incidents. However, most incidents are small but can have a significant impact and that makes business continuity management relevant at all times. TCEB offers financial support to Thai’s MICE players implementing ISO 22301; they will be able to demonstrate to legislators, regulators, customers, prospective customers and other interested parties that they are adhering to good practice in Business Continuity Management Systems.
New Standards for MICE Hotels
To assist hotels outside MICE Cities, MICE Capabilities Development aims to create new MICE Hotel Standards, which will apply to hotels of all star ratings with good meeting facilities. The standards will give hotels a stronger image when they bid for events, thereby spreading the event industry to exciting new destinations.
