From Thai sellers
Overall quality of the clients and some potential leads.
Many of the Chinese buyers consider to organise their events in their country.
Pros of the event
Thailand pavilion was outstanding and it caught the customers' eye.
Cons of the event
Most of Chinese buyers don't speak English.
No technology zone or any new initiatives.
A few number of Trade visitors visit us.
The demonstration i.e. Umbrella painting was more popular when compare with other countries booth.
The networking dinner should be cocktail not sit down dinner
Is the event worthwhile attending for TICA and for TICA members?
Note: Base on TICA Members voting
Thailand continues to be a value for money destination.
TICA Opinions and Conclusion
The buyers know what we can assist them in the future.
The quality of hosted buyers and trade visitors of IT&CM Bangkok is a bit better than this show.
TICA should also participate Roadshow for next year.
