“Paramate” awakens confidence that Pattaya is pushing policy and soaring into a world-class conference center city that generates income from hotels and resorts for the community. Most recently, ICFP and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation chose Pattaya as the host of their international conference in November. They expect around 5,000 people to attend. This will help stimulate Pattaya’s economy to grow continuously.

On April 28, 2022, Mr. Poramate Ngampichet, the No. 1 candidate for Pattaya City Mayor from the Rak Pattaya team, revealed that Pattaya City is now highly trusted by tourists, businessmen, and important organizations around the world, many of which have organized meetings, seminars, and business negotiations there. Especially since the COVID-19 crisis has subsided, the “We Love Pattaya” team is ready to move forward with policy. Pattaya, a pleasant city, is the center of the EEC in the eastern region and is a MICE City. Pattaya is the center for meetings and exhibitions that work towards the development of all dimensions that increase the interest in the area, especially among new customers in addition to the original group of tourists.

“Our team loves Pattaya. We have candidates who are knowledgeable, competent and ready to lead Pattaya City to stand out on the world stage. Recently, Pattaya City has been entrusted to be the host city of the International Conference on Family Planning (International Conference on Family Planning: ICFP), a world-class charitable organization supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in mid-November. There will be up to 5,000 participants from different countries.”

Mr. Poramate is confident that the ICFP meeting, which is supported and cooperated by various parties both domestically and internationally, especially The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will help boost Pattaya’s economy at all levels. Whether it is hotels, resorts, restaurants, transport providers, etc., people will continue to travel to stay in Pattaya. It will help awaken and recover the economy of Pattaya, while generating income for the community.

“Today, Pattaya City needs a visionary leader to manage important events at the end of this year, experienced in business and close to the community. People who are ready to push Pattaya to be the first choice for global organizations, or leading business organizations that want to attend meeting seminars in Thailand. Pattaya can adopt modern management methods and bring structural readiness. The beautiful tourist attractions, technology, and interesting cultural identity of Pattaya City should be publicized to reinforce confidence around the world,” said Mr. Poramat.
