This month’s Lighthouse Club Pattaya networking event was held at the Marriott Resort & Spa on Friday May 6. As ever, it was very well attended, although perhaps a little less so than normal.
All the usual movers and shakers in the real estate sector were on hand to ensure the beer was sampled, perhaps more than a few times.
Peddling his music wherever he goes, Russell Jay Darrell (MIX 88.5 FM) is flanked by Mark Chilcott (Mobile Advertising) and Devin Andrews (BVP).
In addition there were a few new faces, as the Lighthouse Club has attracted friends of friends to these events whether they are in business or not; or perhaps people just holidaying here, who have heard about Lighthouse Club through the media and on Facebook.
The sponsor for the evening was a real estate company, in fact one of the first Thai real estate companies to support the Lighthouse Club, Angket Condominium, who gave a brief presentation of their project situated on Soi Wat Boonkanjanaram in Jomtien about 750 meters from the beach, which offers units for rent or to buy from 2-5 million baht.
A happy threesome (l-r) Craig Smith (Royal Lotus Group Property), Stuart Daly (Pattaya Realty) and Dries Van Veen (Investor).
The Marriott staff did a splendid job ensuring that guests were kept topped up with beer, wine or soft drinks and there were a few snacks available as well.
The next Lighthouse Club networking event will be on Friday, June 3, at the Havana Bar at the Holiday Inn. The fun kicks off as usual at 6 p.m.
Ready for a refill (l-r) Todd Fox (REThai.com), Robert D Watson (Five Star Villas & Condos) and Miliza Ceh.
And the winners of congeniality contest are: Deborah and Paisan Bundityanond (Rabbit Resort) and Luckana Champa (Luckana Communications).
