PHUKET: One of the island’s leading hotel figures, Wichit Na-Ranong will speak about Phuket’s changing tourism landscape this Friday, September 6, at the Indigo Pearl hotel.

Mr Wichit will share his extensive experience on Phuket’s journey to become a leading global resort destination, and provide background on how he has strategically repositioned his flagship hotel in Nai Yang to cater to upscale global travellers.

Expect a candid discussion about the island’s current trend toward mass tourism and the mounting issues the industry is facing. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear perspectives from someone who has been a key player in Phuket, from its early days as an emerging market, right up to the present.

The event is open to the public and will provide a great chance for those working in hotels, tourism, and other businesses to gain new insights into the Phuket story.

The meeting will also showcase the latest Indigo Pearl design collaboration with the iconic and innovative creations of Bill Bensley.

Registration for the event, organized by the Greater Phuket Chapter of the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), opens at 5:30pm with the session commencing at 6:00pm. Admission is 100 baht and includes a free drink during the networking cocktails that follow.
