Due to open for MICE groups in May 2011, the USD60 million complex set on 54 acres of land in the north-eastern region of Phuket, Thailand boasts an extensive array of sporting facilities including an International Rugby Board-standard rugby pitch, FIFA-approved soccer field, a 50-metre swimming pool, a tennis academy with four covered courts, an athletics running track and a 1,000 square metre equipped hi-tech gymnasium. These facilities are designed with shading, lighting and drainage to make them available for use in all weather, seasons and all hours of day and night. In addition, PIASLC includes a dedicated arts centre, kids club and teen zone, innovative food and beverage outlets and a Thai Herbal Day Spa to compliment the sports facilities.

PIASLC's accommodation partner and management company, Thanyapura Hospitality Group, offers two onsite boutique properties namely the Thanyachitra Retreat three star with 38 rooms, and the Thanyachiva Lifestyle Resort four star with 77 rooms for leisure travellers, individual athletes, sports teams and corporate groups.

Thanyapura Hospitality Group's Vice President of Operations, David Roberts, said IT&CMA was the first regional MICE event the club has attended to present facilities to event planners and ensure they have access to the complex.

He added that any events booked during IT&CMA would also receive a full 15% discount for all their food and beverage requirements.

"If qualified buyers have a genuine interest in Asia and in bringing events to the Phuket International Academy Sports and Leisure Club, then we are happy to meet them with a view of hosting them at the club and presenting the meeting facilities and accommodation we have to offer," Mr Roberts said on the eve of IT&CMA.

"Sales kits and presentation DVD's don't do full justice to what we have accomplished in Phuket and aside from the island being an excellent destination for all manner of sporting and corporate events we have left no detail to chance."

"We are in the right place, in the right region and with the Phuket International Airport providing increasing direct regional and international air links, we are confident our venue is going to become very popular, very quickly."

PLEASE visit the team from PIASLC during ITCMA at stand number F15 and find out more about the superb sports, arts and corporate event facilities on Thailand's famous island of Phuket.
