TICC has been known over the years to host exemplary events with Italian flair and style. Until today we believe in this philosophy and hence our events stand out in every way. We constantly engage the business community to exchange ideas, network and build meaningful business relationships. Events create a hub for businesses to meet and transform their businesses or professions to the next level.
The Thai-Italian Chamber of Commerce, every year, organizes over 50 events and activities that can be categorized as:
– Private, those related to the Members, Board of Directors, Committees and Sectorial Missions and or Projects (EU Projects, Italian Regions, etc…).
– Public, open to all of the Network of the Chamber. The events and activities are the following:
GET TOGETHER – NETWORKING EVENTS (Monthly)
Get-Together Events are a networking activity organized periodically by TICC. The event is not only attended by our members and directors but also by companies from our vast network. Representatives from the Italian Embassy as well as Embassies of other countries, private and public organizations that have business interests with the Italian, Thai and international communities also attend. Usually, the location is a well known Italian restaurant or hotel in Bangkok in order to assure excellent service. Our networking events offer a great turnout, visibility, new contacts and business opportunities.

- Ospitalita’ Italiana – The Awarding Ceremony
Since 2010, the Chamber has managed the certification of “Authenticity” for Italian Restaurants in Thailand.
