Hospitality experts confronted pressing trends head-on at the Thailand Tourism Forum 2020.

QUO wowed a sold-out crowd at the Ninth Annual Thailand Tourism Forum (TTF) 2020—‘The Big Bang—Epic Ideas, Scorekeeping and Straight Talk’, a free-of-charge event organised by C9 Hotelworks Hospitality Consulting Group and The American Chamber of Commerce in Thailand (AMCHAM).

Over 1,000 travel professionals gathered at The InterContinental Bangkok and were treated to Instagram branding insight by QUO CEO David Keen and Deputy Content Director Laurel Tuohy.

Our presentation, ‘Eye Candy in Instagrammable Thailand’, offered thoughts on how hospitality brands in Thailand can best leverage the photo and video sharing platform, highlighting domestic brands that get it right, alongside some thoughts on what not to do.

Throughout the afternoon, attendees were amused, enthralled, educated and invigorated by talks on big data, female-centric travel, the future of luxury tourism and more.

One memorable moment came from hotel designer extraordinaire Bill Bensley, who addressed the timely topic of ‘Sensible, Sustainable Solutions’. Using large-scale paintings, he theorised on the best- and worst-case scenarios for tourism in 2050, mentioning underwater cities that could only be toured via glass-bottomed ark and the cures for human ills unearthed in the rainforest.

We laughed, we learned, we networked. Cheers to another busy, successful year of tourism in Thailand!
