BANGKOK: Thailand will host the 37th ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF 2018) between January 22-26, at the Chiang Mai Exhibition and Convention Centre (CMECC) under the theme “ASEAN-Sustainable Connectivity, Boundless Prosperity”.

The event, the largest travel trade event of the ASEAN region, is rotated annually among the 10 ASEAN countries.

Thailand is hosting the event for the sixth time, but has relocated it for the first time to Chiang Mai as part of the policy to promote secondary destinations, create more jobs in rural areas, ensure a better distribution of tourism earnings and highlight Thailand’s linkages with the Greater Mekong Sub-region countries.
