Thailand is reportedly the frontrunner in Tomorrowland’s Asian expansion plans!
According to World Planet Entertainment’s managing director Chatri Tungthiankul, who is in talks with the Belgian festival, Thailand should look to hold more world-class entertainment events in order to strengthen its “travel-tainment” industry and attract more visitors to the country.
To make Tomorrowland a reality, “We have to prepare a venue that can host up to 450,000 attendees,” said Tungthiankul. “We will also have to be ready to facilitate the journey for festival-goers from other countries, specifically at the immigration control, because when people travel to the festival in other countries – Belgium, Brazil and the US – their personalised festival bracelet does all the work, including that of a passport.”
Tungthiankul also revealed that both China and Japan were also interested in playing host to the festival and that such an event would require the government’s involvement and cooperation. While nothing has been confirmed, Kobkan Watthanawarangkoon, Thailand’s Minister of Tourism and Sports, said the Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) was researching and exploring what it could do to make this project a reality.
