A branch of the world’s largest association of electronic engineers has chosen Thailand as the host country for three conferences scheduled to take place over the next three years.

The Thailand chapter of IEEE Power & Energy Society – the oldest society of the US-based Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – worked with Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) to secure the meetings.

IEEE PES APPEEC 2023 will be held in Chiang Mai, IEEE ISC2 2024 in Pattaya, and IEEE PES GTD Asia 2025 in Bangkok, adding around 837m baht (22m USD) to the economy.

The conferences are expected to attract over 11,000 international participants and showcase the country’s expertise in the fields of power and energy science.  The IEEE PES GTD Asia conference in Bangkok is expected to attract around 10,000 delegates.

TCEB’s senior VP, Nichapa Yoswee, said: “Thailand’s success in winning the three consecutive international power & energy conferences is the result of TCEB’s strategic planning and strong collaboration with local associations and partners including the targeted host cities.

“They will also be a great opportunity for Thai professionals and students in related fields to have access to world-class knowledge from experts in power, energy, and smart cities from around the world. The positive impacts and legacies will encompass economic, social, and subject matter advancement aspects for Thailand and especially the host cities.”

IEEE PES - Thailand’s senior vice chairman, Somchai Homklinkaew, added: “This is another success story in the cooperation between our society and TCEB in pushing Thailand as host country for major world conferences.”
