Meetings & Convention News: The Skal Standard: An Inside Look at Bangkok’s Premier Tourism Networking Event
Hosted at the newly revamped Le Méridien Bangkok Surawong, the night left a memorable impression on Thailand’s tourism industry leaders.
GM Mr. Dieter Ruckenbauer warmly welcomed all attendees, setting the stage for executive chef Mr. Marco Cammarata. His culinary feats, ranging from Beef Wellington to an amazing pasta station including a well-curated charcuterie station, were nothing short of extraordinary. To add to the culinary experience, pulled pork sliders and delectable smoked mackerel were sponsored, courtesy of Phuket Smoke House. The Chef’s brigade did an outstanding job and raised the bar for future Skal events.
Skal Bangkok’s long-standing Young Skal member and newest “classic” Skal member, Thomas Tran, perfectly captured the evening’s spirit during the Skal Toast, expressing wishes for “happiness, good health, friendship and long life” to fellow Skalleagues.
Young Skal Director and senior lecturer at Assumption University, Dr. Scott Smith, ensured young professionals, including Mr. Nanda Aung Si and Mr. Nattapat Ruckworakijkul also made their mark, building connections with numerous alumni and Thailand’s tourism industry leaders in attendance.
This remarkable gathering wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support from sponsors such as Move Ahead Media, Paulaner Beer, Serenity Wines, and Pulmentum (Bangkok Vodka & Fame Energy Drink).
