AustCham Thailand invites members to attend a Business Briefing with the Phuket Hotel Association (PHA) to preview PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) 2019 to be held prior to Sundowners on Wednesday 4th September, 2019, at the Avani Sukhumvit Hotel.

Join us to hear more about Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism (PHIST) 2019, which is Southeast Asia's Biggest Green Hospitality Event. It's an innovative event that rallies the hotel industry and its stakeholders to discuss both environmental sustainability and social impact and governance. The event features a wide range of industry experts and panelists, as well as an exhibition of green suppliers and interactive workshops. Leading up to PHIST, we have hosted a Green Beat 60 video competition, asking those with a keen interest in the environment to submit 60 second videos on what all of us can do to help. The videos will be showcased at PHIST, and the winner of the competition will be awarded some very attractive prizes. A huge topic at PHIST will be the subject of Green Meetings, and what the Phuket Hotels Association's member hotels have done to ensure more sustainable venues for large corporate meetings and events. PHIST is a collaborative effort that endeavors to showcase that by putting our best ideas and practices together, we can ensure that Phuket remains attractive to international travelers and its local inhabitants for years to come.

Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel

Travellers can now discover the uniquely local and diverse charms of Thailand’s capital city with the opening of Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok hotel, bringing the brand’s signature experiences to the cosmopolitan neighbourhoods of On Nut and Phra Khanong in the ‘City of Angels’.

Avani Sukhumvit is located just 30 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport and sits atop a major retail complex giving guests a myriad shopping and entertainment options simply by an elevator ride away. Just steps from the hotel, Sukhumvit Road is one of Bangkok’s major transportation arteries and its connection to eastern Thailand as well as the surrounding neighbourhoods. Nearby the W District teems with hip bars, restaurants, and galleries, and insights into local life can be discovered along the Phra Khanong Canal. Exploring Greater Bangkok is a breeze thanks to the hotel’s direct walkway to the Bangkok Transit System (BTS) skytrain line, with the city’s buzzing business, shopping and dining destinations just a few stations away.

Avani Sukhumvit fully embraces the brand’s commitment to details, no matter how short or long the visit. Each of the 382 rooms features clean, crisp colours and designs, creating a freshness that rejuvenates guests for the new day and welcomes with signature Avani amenities for comfort, convenience and the promise of a good night’s sleep. An AvaniFit gym is fully equipped to maintain fitness regimes, and an AvaniSpa invites guests to relax, refresh, and re-energise. And of course, the pool awaits guests to cool off, bask in the sun, or enjoy light refreshments before or after a dip.
