With remote and hybrid work becoming the new normal at the workplace, Avani Hotels & Resorts in Thailand are introducing a host of technology-based MICE products to make the transition to a more digital environment as seamless as possible.

With demand for ZOOM, Microsoft Teams and other video calling apps on the rise, Avani has expanded into digital services to offer event planners such solutions as online attendee management, interactive polling, rental of live streaming equipment and services of a dedicated on-site technical team.

Available packages range from “Mini Meet” with up to 10 on-site attendees and 100 online participants to “Conference Pro” with 50 on-site and 500 online participants, six guest speakers and multiple 4K cameras. Creative production services such as digital backdrop design and waiting room visuals are also available, allowing event organisers to plan their inter-connected events efficiently. Allow Avani’s meeting professionals to handle all the technical aspects of the hybrid meeting. On-site participants will enjoy traditional hospitality in the form of theme coffee breaks and meeting spaces designed to inspire.

At Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel contemporary venues come equipped with the latest tech, a full-sized car lift to showcase the latest models and space for more than 1,200 delegates.

Another city-centre property, the stylish Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel in the On-Nut neighbourhood, offers direct BTS connection and innovative design across 1,076 square metres of events space, featuring high ceilings and access to outdoor areas.

Avani Pattaya Resort, a hotel of choice for team-building and incentive travel organisers, also boasts the latest tech and flexible meeting rooms ideal for on-site and online experiences, with a seasoned production team on standby for technical set-up and visual mastery.

Over at Avani+ Hua Hin Resort, event planners are encouraged to be creative. No theme is too outlandish and no request too excessive. Alfresco meetings, seaside seminars, business by the beach — the only limit is the sky for coming up with MICE solutions at Hua Hin.

Safe meetings with AvaniSHIELD - all Avani Hotels have adopted a range of heightened hygiene and sanitising standards, collectively known as the brand’s safety and hygiene programme the AvaniSHIELD, to ensure the health and safety of guests and team members. With all the necessary safety and cleanliness practices in place, all Avani properties in Thailand have been certified by The Ministry of Public Health and obtained the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) certification for Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA).
