Top executives from the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) together with officials from the Department of Health (DOH) recently visited Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Hall (PEACH) for a site visit to inspect the venue’s new health measures in safeguarding upcoming business events. TCEB has taken a pro-active approach to support the health readiness of Thai MICE operators and ensure that they comply with the government’s health safety criteria for MICE events.
These new health measures that are carried out by Thai venues including PEACH are part of the MICE Venue Hygiene Guidelines, which TCEB has developed in collaboration with significant associations.
Around 30 representatives from TCEB, DOH and the Royal College of Physicians of Thailand (RCPT) were welcomed by the team lead by Panga Vathanakul, managing director of Royal Cliff Hotels Group and PEACH. The site inspection included the presentation of the new normal preventive measures of PEACH showcasing modified event setups with social distancing practices, food contamination prevention protocols as well as the venue’s green way of implementing garbage disposal. The PEACH team also showed and explained how the convention center’s air system was thoroughly cleaned and upgraded with a filter for better air quality during the venue’s temporary closure.
An air disinfection system with UV light was likewise installed to help control the carbon dioxide level in the venue. As an award-winning meeting and events destination, PEACH showcases its readiness in hosting ‘new normal’ events that comply with the strict hygiene and safety criteria of the Ministry of Public Health.
In addition, the venue has also created the ‘Protection-C Package’ which incorporates specific preventive measures that allow planners, organisers and corporates to conduct events in a secure and well-protected environment.
