“We are thrilled to partner with the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau for the 2017 PCMA Global Professionals Conference – APAC event.

Commenting on the upcoming event Clara Fernandez, External Relations Manager, UIA said: With pleasure, we will come back to Thailand this time to the beautiful city of Chiang Mai. We know that many associations representatives will join the Round Table attracted by the educational programme and the opportunity to networkbut we strongly believe that participants will come at least in equal part persuaded by the beauty of the destination and the hospitality of the people of Thailand.”
