Bangkok Trade Fair Offers Side Excursions

The organizers of the Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair are making it easy for visitors to the trade fair to make side excursions to other parts of Bangkok and Thailand.

A booth dedicated to help visitors set up these side trips will be at the 41st BGJF, and details of this program will be available at in January 2008.

“We want to tell our foreign friends and partners to take advantage of being at BGJF to gain other good personal experience which the kingdom has had to offer,” said Vichai Assarasakorn, president of Thai Gem and Jewelry Traders Association, the main BGJF organizer.

That gives rise to a plan to offer side trips, excursions, and tour programs specially to BGJF visitors, starting at the forthcoming 41st event, scheduled on February 27-March 2, 2008.

Responding to demand from BGJF participants, these arrangements will be tailored to meet the specific needs of the BGJF visitors by highly professional operators specially appointed by TGJTA at exclusive charges, he said.

The 41st edition boasts 1,500 exhibitors from 50 countries and occupying about 3,500 booths over an area of approximately 1 million square feet at the Impact Challenger.

Those who pre-registration will receive a badge by Jan. 15, 2008.
