Pattaya business leaders will try to promote the city as a center for business meetings and conventions with a concert by the Dutch Swing College Band Nov. 27 at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
Pattaya Business & Tourism Association President Sinchai Wattanasartsathorn chaired a planning meeting at city hall Nov. 11 with the event’s co-sponsors, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Chonburi Tourism and Sports office, and Bangkok Hospital Pattaya.
Pattaya Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh chairs the press conference announcing the upcoming concert.
The concert is aimed at drawing attention to Pattaya’s capabilities to host “meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions.” The PBTA said it will show tourists that Pattaya is normal, safe and has high-standard MICE facilities.
The concert kicks off at the mall’s beachfront sunken amphitheater at 6 p.m. with the first show by the Dutch Swing College Band, which was first formed in 1945 by bandleader and clarinetist/saxophonist Peter Schilperoort and has gained a large international following.
A performance from the Alcatraz transgender cabaret will follow with the Dutch Swing College Band taking the stage again for a second set.
