Phuket has been known as Andaman's Pearl and has attracted tourists from all over the world. However, Phuket has much more to offer and ready to be a "business leisure destination" with 5G covering 70% of the island, a Smart City with project of light rail, smart bus, smart pier,  a MICE city, and an international medical hub.

Come join our 2-day forum where new business opportunities are awaiting for you!
