held its second Round Table event on Monday March 6th 2017 at the delightful riverside setting of The Siam Hotel. The exclusive discussion group was hosted by CEO, Wimintra Jangnin, with the assistance of The Siam’s GM Nick Downing.

As has become the norm, the event took the form of a panel discussion with active audience participation. C9 Hotelworks’ Bill Barnett took the moderator’s role for an intriguing debate on the importance of the LGBT market segment for the region’s hoteliers. The panelists included Supa-arpha (Mandy) Itthikaiwan, Marketing Communications Manager at Well Hotels & Resorts; Ken Kreangsak Leing, founder of G-Spot Entertainment; Linh Le, Managing Director of Asia DMC, and Nick Downing.

The topic of LGBT travelers often divides opinions, so the chance to bring together a diverse group of participants with direct personal experience of the issues allowed an open and honest conversation within an intimate setting. Those in attendance were treated to insights from those who can testify to the opportunities offered by the LGBT segment, those who have welcomed LGBT guests into their properties, and those who can help build an understanding of what hospitality truly means from the LGBT perspective. would therefore like to thank all the panelists and audience members who contributed to such an enjoyable event, and would extend special thanks to the staff and management at The Siam Hotel for the provision of such delightful facilities and outstanding service.
