About the Committee

Mission.

The Travel & Tourism Committee (TTC) promotes the Travel and Tourism markets of Thailand and the U.S. by facilitating communication and developing business between Thailand’s private and public sector, and within the AMCHAM community of businesses.  The TTC discusses travel trends and issues within and affecting the airline, hotel, tour companies, convention, exhibition, business travel, medical tourism, and ground transportation industries.

Our goal is to enhance Thailand’s overall tourist and travel experience by helping it to maintain a competitive advantage relative to neighboring alternative destinations in S.E. Asia. The committee has members from approximately 110 AMCHAM companies and targets to meet on the first Thursday each month at 5 pm in the AMCHAM offices and or at member hotel locations depending upon the topic, speaker and availability.  Additionally, the TTC looks to support outbound travel from Thailand and the Greater Mekong Sub-Region (GMS) to the U.S. and to promote the USA as a tourist destination.  The TTC cooperates with the US Commercial Services officers within the U.S. Embassy Bangkok, to enhance and support the “Brand USA” and B2G ventures which are on-going.
