Pattaya Hotel GM’s met for their regular networking, this time at the Holiday Inn Pattaya on Thursday 13th December in Havana Bar.

Created initially as a social event, the networking also allows for the sharing of industry news, keeping all members up to date on local and regional market conditions and events, as well as allowing connections and friendships to build.

Veteran hoteliers Philippe Delaloye, Rob Rijnders and Rene Pisters have more than 100 years of hotel experience between them.

As one of the busiest regions in Thailand for the hospitality industry, with new hotel openings always in the pipeline, the Pattaya group is always expanding and welcomes new General Managers to join.

The events held in Pattaya are a continuation of a networking group that started in Bangkok several years ago. In an industry that is both fast paced as well as ever-changing, the importance of sharing views with industry peers has been well recognized.

The group also organizes key speakers from time to time who can add value to the conversation and meet directly with a broad base of hotel leaders.

All events for both Bangkok and Pattaya are shared among members via the Facebook page which acts as the central hub for relevant news articles, special promotions, and country legal updates. Events currently take place bi-monthly.

To join please go to “Thailand Hotel GM’s” on Facebook. Alternatively contact Jacqui Cuthbertson, General Manager of InterContinental Pattaya Resort, [email protected] to be added to the mailing list.
