Asian First:
No Vacancy, one of the region’s leading accommodation industry conferences, is being staged in Asia for the first time at the Millennium Hilton Bangkok on June 7, 2011. It will be a great day featuring fantastic speakers, a fast-paced, issued-based program and excellent networking.
Thai Focus:
The major focus will be on Thailand’s accommodation industry and websites while also including speakers from the Mekong region. The program will deal with web trends, sales and marketing, distribution, yield management and consumer interaction. It will be packed with issues, case studies, panels and debate.
No Vacancy was founded in Sydney, Australia, during 2007, by Martin Kelly, who also publishes and runs the well respected TRAVELtech conference, founded in 1999.
No Vacancy is expected to attract 150 to 200 delegates. Most will come from Thailand with the balance from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
Delegate Profile:
Delegates will be independent hotel owners and decision makers working in Management, Distribution, Sales and Marketing, Pricing and Yield Management for major hotels and groups. Thailand’s most popular accommodation websites and tech suppliers will also be represented.
The timing is designed to maximize attendance and profile. It is being held on June 7, 2011, the day before Thai Travel Mart Plus. Each event can leverage off the other.
Ticket prices are affordable but not cheap, reflecting the value of this event.

BangkokNo Vacancy is heading to Thailand with its first Asian event in Bangkok on June 7. No Vacancy Thailand will have a strong  local market focus, great speakers, a fast-paced, issued-based program and excellent networking  – all the attributes that have made the original Sydney event successful over the past five years. “Thailand is probably the most dynamic market in SE Asia – no matter what happens tourism just powers ahead – and we want to be part of that,” says No Vacancy director Martin Kelly.

“Thailand has a really strong hotel industry plus a robust culture of online innovation, many of the region’s leading web brands originate in Thailand, offering fantastic potential to create a vibrant and uniquely Thai event.” Kelly is now working on the program and is open to all ideas, while sponsorships are also available.
