The combined chambers of commerce met again for their popular monthly networking meeting. The venue this time was the 17th floor ballroom of the Hilton hotel in Pattaya offering spectacular views across the bay.
The event was held on Friday the 15th of May, and on this occasion was hosted by the American Chamber (AMCHAM). As the chambers now combine their efforts, representatives and members from the German, British, Belu-Thai, Australian & South African chambers were present.

The attentive staff at the Hilton ensured that the ice cold beers and wines were served to those attending, along with an array of tasty snacks.
Networking has always been an integral part of expanding local business whether it’s done on the golf course, over lunch, or in an organized get together. The combined chamber allows local business owners and management to interact with each other and be introduced to those also providing services, from graphic design, accounting, marketing, property, oil & gas services, automotive, etc.
