IFEAT 2024 Bangkok, Thailand
IFEAT is delighted to announce that the 2024 Conference will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from Sunday 10th to Thursday 14th November at the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park Hotel.
Since its earliest days as the capital of Thailand to its current incarnation as a massive city in the twenty-first century, Bangkok has captivated tourists for over 200 years. Every sense is on high alert in this place as numerous golden spires peer over wooden houses, musical neon-lit boats cruise the inky Chao Phraya River, saffron-robed monks ride past on tuk-tuks whilst a monorail weaves between the skyscrapers.
Bangkok is the largest city in Thailand and is home to more than 10 million people. It has evolved into one of Southeast Asia’s most important and contemporary cities as a result of its expanding economic growth and enormous appeal as a destination for tourists.
The city is situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River and was known as the Venice of the East because it relied on a vast network of canals for transportation between the 16th and 19th centuries.
With a significant international airport, it serves as the starting point for many travels to Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia, but there are many good reasons to visit the city.
In Thailand, the expression “same same, but different” is used to describe practically everything. Alongside soaring glass skyscrapers, stylish rooftop bars, and enormous contemporary malls are bustling traditional markets and beautiful golden temples where you can immerse yourself in the local culture as it has been for decades.
Registration will open in spring 2024. More details will be available soon.
