Founder of both Thailand’s first international boat show (PIMEX) and Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek, and publisher of Southeast Asia Pilot – the ‘bible’ for anyone cruising the waters between Darwin and India’s Andaman Islands – IMAGE asia’s main business is, perhaps surprisingly, not in the boating world. With a 15-year track record of publishing dining guides, detailed maps, glossy magazines and tourism-related websites, Phuket-based IMAGE asia is now breaking new ground and going nationwide with its innovative portal website for Thailand’s MICE business – https://meetinthailand.com
The concept behind meetinthailand.com is to bring MICE buyers and suppliers together in a single platform, where both sides have access to interactive tools which enable them can engage with each other.
“Too often buyers waste time and money flying to Thailand to carry out destination inspections, armed with sketchy, inadequate information,” said IMAGE asia’s managing director Grenville Fordham, adding, “Our objective with meetinthailand.com is to ensure that no buyer needs to travel to Thailand without a comprehensive and detailed shortlist of venues, suppliers and opportunities preselected on the basis of comprehensive, up-to-date information.”
IMAGE asia’s other media products include Window on Phuket (a glossy large format magazine) and Where to Eat in Phuket (a comprehensive dining guide), both in print and online in mobile-friendly format. Alongside these flagship publications are very detailed and accurate road maps of Phuket in various languages and an amazingly detailed map of Phang Nga Bay. Alongside the online version of the dinging guide, the company offers online table booking with instant confirmation.
