BANGKOK, 6 September 2012 (NNT) – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) plans to add more budgets into its tourism stimulus scheme, with a goal to boost the number of European visitors to Thailand in the last quarter of this year.
Ms. Juthaporn Rerngronasa, TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas, has announced that the TAT is preparing to launch sales promotion campaigns in the United Kingdom, Germany and the Scandinavian countries to persuade more people from there to visit Thailand. She indicated that slight declines in tourist number have been seen in these three markets due to the economic crisis.
For travel agencies that mainly cater to European customers, Ms. Juthaporn said the TAT will help add value to their travel packages by providing free rides on the BTS Skytrain and discounts for restaurants among others. Additionally, the TAT has instructed its offices in Europe to keep a close eye on the situation of each country in order to be able to adjust the marketing plans properly.
