The ‘Land of Smiles’ and one of the most sought-after wedding destinations by Indian couples, Thailand has reopened its doors for Indian destination weddings. Eventhough things briefly came to a standstill due to the pandemic, the highly popular wedding destination bounced back at the Amazing Thailand Wedding Summit 2022 organized by WeddingSutra and the Tourism Authority of Thailand in Mumbai and Delhi.
Hosted at The St. Regis Mumbai and The Leela Palace New Delhi, the Summit was attended by a large and diverse group of leading & emerging destination wedding planners and professionals hailing from 15 different cities. Adding to the prestige of the event were some of the top hotels from Thailand. Key individuals and representatives from The Palayana Hua Hin, Accor Hotels, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, Aman Resorts Group Limited, Marriott International, Minor Hotels, Capella Hotels and Resorts, Shangri-La Group, and Splash Beach Resort Phuket enriched the event by bringing their deep knowledge of Thai hospitality to the table. The Amazing Thailand Wedding Summit 2022 also gave both the wedding professionals and wedding venues a chance to understand the nuances of planning an Indian wedding in Thailand. As everyone mingled and participated in carefully curated panel discussions, long-lasting connections were built between the hospitality groups and the wedding professionals.
