  • This type of booking can be made by only one employee of FCA Member (AustCham Thailand, AMCHAM Thailand, BCCT, GTCC). If you want to register more guests from same company please select "Multiple registrations from the same member company"
  • While our strong preference is that each employee of an FCA member company (AustCham Thailand, AMCHAM Thailand, BCCT, GTCC) create their own log-in to book for events, we recognise there are events such Sundowners where one company may wish to place a single booking for multiple employees. Contact us for the code to unlock this booking option.
  • Pre-paid vouchers enable quick, easy and discounted Sundowners entry. Pre-register you and your guests and we'll ensure a name badge is ready to go at a special desk away from the slow money-collection area. Pick up your name tag, hand us the voucher and get networking. Easy. You may register as many guests as you have vouchers.
