INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW – THAILAND (2023 Anticipated)
Under the dynamic leadership of Thailand Conventions Exhibitions Bureau (TCEB), Thailand will stage the Asian version of International Air Show, on a grand scale as held in the alternate years at the Farnborough International Airshow (UK).
The inauguration of the 1st International Air Show at the U-Tapao Airport is expected to take place on 2023. This initiative is a part of driving force to create business openings in 12 key industries under Thailand 4.0 model to attract the world’s most iconic events, including aviation.
“TCEB had recently commissioned UK-based Farnborough International to conduct a ‘Thailand International Airshow feasibility study’ for staging the show at U-Tapao Rayong Pattaya International Airport in the Thai government’s ‘Thailand 4.0 – EEC’ (Eastern Economic Corridor) initiative.
Mrs. Nichapa Yoswee, TCEB’s Senior Vice President – Business said “The study is now complete, covering the global overview, regional market potential, industry feedback, competitive landscape, Thailand’s EEC development and the government’s Thailand 4.0 initiative. It also offers recommendations for Thailand to stage the event and economic impacts.”
On domestic front, TCEB held industry hearing among stakeholders of the local aviation industry, both in the public and private sector, to identify Thailand’s potential and strength in staging air show and its economic impacts”.
“Aviation is one of the priority sectors behind the country’s Aerotropolis initiative and MRO hub and it corresponds with the expansion of U-Tapao Rayong Pattaya International Airport in the EEC,” Mrs. Nichapa added.
