Operation Smile Thailand

IMA Conference 2019 Bangkok

The second IMA conference in Bangkok took place from 19th to 22nd February and attracted over 200 attendees including representatives from Reason Global.

Hosted at the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park Hotel, the conference kicked off on the evening of the 19th with an opening session which included presentations from attendees and to IMA’s chosen charity of Operation Smile Thailand, a truly remarkable organisation. Leading up to the conference, IMA raised a total of 182,000 THB for the charity (equivalent to just under US$6000) and that was before the further fundraising at the conference itself. Operation Smile Thailand also shared a moving video with the attendees at the opening session which certainly brought home the incredible work they do.

The Opening Reception followed, proudly sponsored by Reason Global, and was enjoyed by all. It was the perfect start to two days of networking meetings which were very well attended. On the second evening, the Gala Dinner brought some unusual entertainment from attendees, ranging from traditional Thai dancing to singing and guitar playing.

Overall, the IMA 2019 conference was a huge success for all involved and there is no doubt next year will just be bigger and better. We are looking forward to it already!
