30 March 2022: The Global Summit of Women 2022, the world’s major international business and economic forum for women leaders, is set to be held in Thailand in June, announced by the Summit President and the Thailand Host Committee in a press conference at ICONSIAM. Thailand is honoured to host the Summit in its 32nd year, which is an excellent opportunity to showcase Thailand’s potential as an international conference and convention host, and “World Destination” following the coronavirus pandemic.

Global Summit of Women 2020 will be held from 23-25 June 2022 at the Centara Grand Hotel and Bangkok Convention Centre under the theme “Women: Creating Opportunities in the New Reality.” Women leaders in business and government sectors from around the world will attend, in a great opportunity to highlight the potential of Thailand to international delegates as a “World Destination,” both in hosting international conferences and the readiness to open the country for tourism. Thailand was previously scheduled to host the event in 2020, but this was postponed to 2022 by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ms Irene Natividad, President of the Global Summit of Women 2020, said that apart from its natural and historic bounty, Thailand ranks high in women’s economic participation in business and government at both the regional and global levels.

“As Summit President, I am looking forward to bringing this renowned Summit to Thailand, a global gathering of women in business and government from around the world. The 2022 Summit theme: ‘Women: Creating Opportunities in the New Reality,’ will focus on driving the post-pandemic economy. The new global marketplace has been changed by technology and innovation, meaning that now there are new ways for women engage in business transformation through e-commerce. Male and female senior executives of multinational corporations are expected from countries as diverse as South Africa, Vietnam, France, Spain, Mexico, Germany, and Kazakhstan. There is genuine excitement in being able to meet in person for the first time, in over two years since the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Summit President said that the upcoming Summit would be a dynamic, fact-filled, and engaging conference on what can be done to move the needle on economic equity for women and create new opportunities post-pandemic. It will help with active cross-border networking, robust best practice exchanges, inspiring presentations, focusing on creative solutions to advance women’s economic progress globally in a post-COVID world as workers, small business owners, consumers, and investors.

The conference will underline how women will be critical players in the economic recovery, as throughout the last decade, women have contributed to raising national GDPs globally.

Ms Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Chair of the Thai Host Committee and former Minister of Tourism, said that the Thai Host Committee has delighted and honoured that Thailand will be hosting this year’s Summit. It is the biggest stage for international women leaders in the world. It confirms our capabilities to host conferences that will impress participants and enhance Thailand’s image and confidence in its economy.

“The Global Summit of Women 2022 will generate confidence in the Thai economy, focusing on continued economic development and promoting new investment. I am sure that this Summit will empower women and encourage cooperation between every sector to build a new generation for economic recovery and a better world. The content of the three-day conference will highlight future business opportunities and enable networking to promote mutual economic success.”

Ms Kobkarn is also confident in strict measures implemented to control the spread of COVID-19 at the Summit. This Summit edition is also special for its “Carbon Neutral” format, which will monitor greenhouse gas emissions from its various activities. The activities include electricity, participants’ travel, catering, and waste management. There will be support for offsetting emissions from activities by purchasing carbon credits from the Project to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Thailand. The Summit will also present community products from around Thailand to create opportunities for local communities to develop as entrepreneurs at the international level.

Mr Siripakorn Chiosamut, Deputy Governor for Marketing Communications, and Marketing Director at the Tourist Authority of Thailand (TAT) talked about Thailand’s readiness to open the country to women leaders at this international conference and international tourists.

“This world-level convention in Thailand is an important step to build confidence internationally that Thailand is ready to welcome tourists after the long slowdown in tourism during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. It is also an opportunity to provide an impressive tourist experience to the women leaders who are delegates at the Global Summit of Women 2022. TAT has designated 2022 as Visit Thailand Year 2022: Amazing New Chapters. Women currently have a key role in driving the economy because of their capabilities for increased income. They are also one of the major market segments with high tourism potential because of their confidence and courage in deciding to travel.”

Mr Siripakorn was confident that this Global Summit of Women would be successful due to the cooperation of various departments and organizations in Thailand, who have come together to host the event and show off Thailand’s potential in tourism and business investment. It will help promote Thailand as a Preferred Destination and a World Destination.

Ms Nichapa Yoswee, Senior Vice President of the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, thanked the Summit Organizing Committee for seeing the promise of Thailand as a forum for vital social topics at the international level, showcasing Thailand’s potential to host international conferences.

“The Global Summit of Women is a world-class International Convention supporting the roles and rights of women at a global forum for women leaders. It will inspire the world community to see the importance of Gender Equality, Diversity, and Inclusiveness, consistent with Thailand’s 12th National Economic and Social Development Plan. The Summit will welcome women leaders from 60 countries worldwide as delegates and demonstrate Thailand’s capability to host world-class conferences. We expect the Summit to generate inward income for the country of around 80 million baht.”

Ms Nichapa said that although Thailand has been continually impacted by the COVID-19 situation recently, the MICE industry in Thailand could generate income to Thailand of over 33.3 billion baht, creating over 46,000 jobs. Many international conferences are scheduled in Thailand this year, including the APEC Thailand 2022 Leaders’ Summit.
