General managers from more than 22 area hotels met last week to discuss sales, promotions and tourism industry issues at a networking meeting at the Hilton Pattaya.
Dusit Thani Pattaya hotel General Manager Chatchawal Supachayanont praised Pattaya-area accommodations executives for getting together to work to boost hotel industry fortunes. He said such gatherings were unlikely in other tourist destinations like Chiang Mai or Phuket.
The Feb. 24 networking meeting was actually just the latest in a series of such events that have been running in Pattaya for six years.

“People got to discuss their hotels’ promotions, sales and marketing strategies which I believe encourage all hotels to follow the same path and reach a mutual goal so as to compete with other international tourist destinations,” Chatchawal said.
