Special Online Phuket Sandbox Event – 15th July

Category: Tourism, Posted:08 Jul 2021 | 10:08 am

On Thursday 15th July, everything you need to know about Thailand’s Phuket Sandbox will be covered in a special one hour virtual session – WELCOME BACK HOME – An Interactive Online Tourism Event. Organized by C9 Hotelworks, Delivering Asia Communications, Laguna Phuket, Creative Concept AV and leading speakers from the private and public sector.

Tourism eyes around the world are focused on the resort island of Phuket, Thailand.  In the last two weeks the reopening of international, vaccinated travel to the Phuket Sandbox has created a model for other resort destinations to restart their tourism economies. A key emerging storyline from the island’s frenzied runaway to 1st July has been the remarkable cross sector partnerships that has become a true catalyst of change.

This timely one-hour online event is an opportunity to hear from industry experts who have been involved in the process and will be sharing their learnings. The event will also have an extensive question and answer session. The event will be particularly useful for those in the travel trade industry, media and tourism sectors given the Sandbox platform will likely emerge in other destinations.
