  • Open to any employee of an AustCham member company. To register for website access please go to the 'member info' tab on the AustCham home page and select 'apply for website access'. Your entry fee includes 50 baht that is donated directly to community services activities. Pre-book AND pre-pay for a streamlined Sundowners entry.

    Members may register guests at the non-member price.
  • For those who are not members of the chamber and not employed by an AustCham member company. Your entry fee includes 50 baht that is donated directly to community services activities.

    You may register additional guests.
  • Sponsors and others who hold pre-paid vouchers should book under this category. Your voucher will be collected on the night.

    Pre-booking allows you to pick up your name badges at a special desk away from the money-collection area.

    You can book as many guests under this category as you have vouchers (subject to 'fair play' policy). Pre-paid vouchers enable quick, easy and discounted Sundowners entry. Pick up your name tag, hand us the voucher and get networking! Contact the AustCham office for information about ordering vouchers.
  • While our strong preference is that each employee of an AustCham member company 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.

If you are an employee of an AustCham company you will need to have a log-in to the website in order to book at member prices. Simply apply for access under the 'Member Info' navigation tab above (enter code 'employee' upon registering).

Passwords for the old system will no longer work. If at any stage you are prompted for a password but do not know it simply click 'forgot password' to select a new one.
Registration is closed

Sundowners is AustCham Thailand's monthly business networking function. It is a great opportunity for members and guests of the Chamber to meet, network and exchange views in a social environment.

We would kindly ask guests to show their respect by remaining quiet during sponsors' speeches - these typically last no more than five minutes and Sundowners wouldn't happen without our sponsors.

*** Having moved to a completely new member management system and website, the booking process for Sundowners (and other events) has changed. The new system is based on each member having their own website log-in and making bookings on an individual basis. (Note that 'member' is defined as anybody working for an AustCham  member company and all individual members). If you are an employee of an AustCham member company you can apply for website access here, using the code 'employee' to waive the fee.***

AustCham wishes to thank its sponsors for their support.

Gift of Happiness Foundation

Founded by Mr Edward Haworth in 2000, his charitable efforts started in Thailand by bringing the gift of laughter to orphans and disadvantaged children in Bangkok through his performances as Eckie the Clown. Since that time, his efforts supported by a team of dedicated volunteers have expanded to provide not only laughter but basic necessities like clothing, bedding, medical supplies, agricultural equipment, etc. to those in need throughout Thailand including migrant schools and refugee camps along the Thai-Burmese border.

To bring the “Gift of Happiness” to as many children as possible, whose entire lives as innocent victims of fate, may be filled with only negative, abusive or unhappy experiences. They know that positive experiences like being able to smile and laugh helps children living in difficult circumstances to cope and provide a respite from the difficult challenges they face each day.
