Phuket SMART Link Business Forum

2-day Business Forum for new business opportunities in Phuket


    Phuket is one of the world-class tourist attractions, welcoming each year more than 10 million tourists from abroad and 3.9 million domestic tourists. Phuket has contributed more than 400 billion Baht to Thailand’s GDP, ranking in the top 3 provinces. However, apart from its tourism industry, Phuket aims at promoting itself as a business destination, with its strategy of GEMMSST (Gastronomy, Education, Medical&Wellness, Marina Hub, Sport&Events, Smart City, Tuna Hub).


    Intitated by the Franco-Thai Chamber of Commerce (FTCC), the Phuket SMART Link Business Forum (Services, MICE, Arts&Culture, Revitalization, Tourism) will be held from 3-4 December 2020 to promote Phuket as a “business leisure destination” to expatriates in Thailand and to build link between local entrepreneurs in Phuket and surrounding areas with expatriates.
