A joint chambers of commerce networking event was held at the Cape Dara Resort in Naklua on Friday the 21st of November.
It was hosted by the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand (BCCT), who were joined by the Australian Chamber (AustCham) American Chamber (AmCham) the German Chamber (GTCC), the South African Chamber (SATCC) and the Belgium and Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Thailand
The even was held in the area known as the Twinkle Bar at Cape Dara, which is set beside the hotel’s swimming pool and offers stunning views across Pattaya Bay.
The light breeze kept the networkers cool as did the beer, wine, soft drinks, and a large variety of snacks, including spicy chicken nuggets, fish cakes, chicken lollipops, samosas and succulent roast beef with rosemary.
Executive members of the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand are joined by representatives from the four sponsors: Bromsgrove International School, MG, Kingdom Property and Allied Pickfords.
BCCT Vice Chairman Chris Thatcher made a brief speech and introduced Beau Mekavarakul from Cape Dara who welcomed the guests to her hotel.
The sponsors for the evening were Bromsgrove International School in Bangkok, Allied Pickfords, who deal with house relocation and packing services, as well as MG who were promoting the classic sports brand with the non turbo and turbo models which are manufactured in Rayong, with prices starting at just 848,000 THB.
