IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific resumes asin-person event with a redesigned 2023 programme

Come September and the global MICE and corporate professionals will converge into Bangkok for the now renowned IT&CMA and CTW events.

For MICE professionals and corporates across the globe, IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific remains the event to make your presence felt annually, and this year will be no different as the twin events are set to be 100% in-person. Due to Covid in 2020 and 2021, these were virtual editions, and a hybrid edition was held in 2022. The redesigned 2023 program features new and reintroduced engagement sessions. This year celebrates 31 years of fostering international MICE business in Asia-Pacific and 26 years of cultivating Corporate Travel and Entertainment (T&E) best practices among Asia-Pacific’s travel professionals.

The upcoming 3-day in-person IT&CM Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific promises a line-up of conferences and networking, curated for the diverse needs and interests of our delegates. 

Calstas Jof, the Director General of ICOM, Switzerland, shared, “I am ready for the business appointments, casual get-togethers, networking sessions, and insightful presentations. Additionally, I aim to explore partners who are able to build fruitful relationships with our organization and share the same visions as ours after the pandemic.”

Here are some features attendees can look forward to:

  • Opening Keynote – An immersive discussion on Connecting Minds, Supporting Communities presented by Khun Bhummikitti Ruktaengam, President of Sustainable Tourism Development Foundation and Adviser of Phuket Tourist Association. The opening keynote will highlight the positive impact tourism/ MICE partnerships can have on local communities.
