The exhibition aims to bring together leading food companies, which are known for their annual leap in growth, to help strengthen the country’s positioning in food category and to drive Thailand as the regional wholesale hub.
AEC TRADE CENTER - PANTIP WHOLESALE DESTINATION is a concept created by AWC with the intention to develop the largest comprehensive wholesale center in the CLMVT region (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand). Due to the Covid-19 situation that directly affected Thai entrepreneurs and the country’s economy, AWC decided to develop AEC TRADE CENTER – PANTIP WHOLESALE DESTINATION into a brand new and integrated service wholesale landmark in the region and the only one of its kind in downtown Bangkok. Officially launched on November 30, 2020, AEC TRADE CENTER meets the needs of all buyers and sellers as a one-stop wholesale trade center, all in one place, under the concepts of ‘Most convenient’, ‘Most Entirely’ and ‘Best price’ along with a direct connection to the Chinese market through a state-owned enterprise that devel-ops and manages the world’s largest wholesale market for miscellaneous goods from Yiwu, China. This offers a new and unique experience for Thai entrepreneurs to overcome previous trade obstacles and to be able to compete successfully in the digital economy with the highest efficiency and without boundaries. Thai entrepreneurs will be equipped and ready for steady growth enabling them to contribute to a strong recovery of Thailand’s economy.
Under the concept of BEYOND EXHIBITION which aims to deliver trade exhibitions that go beyond the ordinary with a wide array of exclusive offers, privileges, and facilities, allows wholesalers and producers to conduct their businesses all year round through PhenixBox, an OMNI CHANNEL platform which has been specifically designed to connect trading activities seamlessly from of-fline to online developed and designed to save costs for wholesalers while facilitating buyers who can purchase products at the wholesale price. SOLUTION SERVICE CENTER (SSC) is also available provideing broad range of consultancy services helping importers and exporters increase their business opportunities in both domestic and international markets. This can create strong and sustainable trade network.
Mr. Thosapone Dansuputra, Director-General of the Department of Business Development, Ministry of Commerce said “The Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected all industries, particularly the business sector. It is necessary for entrepreneurs to adapt themselves to the changing spending habits of people who increasingly purchase products online. The signing of this MOU will create a synergy between expertise and trade data from the public and private sectors for higher benefits creating a new sales channel for Thai entrepreneurs and farmers in the global markets. This MOU signing will also help upgrade Thai agri-cultural products to be on par with international standards, preparing entrepreneurs to face the challenges in the global markets and changes in the era of New Normal.”
AWC further elevates the shopping experience with product exhibitions all year round at the wholesale trade center’s activity space. The first exhibition under the theme of FOOD DESTINATION CENTER will showcase a selection of products in the food industry – one of the country’s largest sectors with the highest continuous growth rate – from June 4 – August 31, 2021. AWC’s partners are now also showcasing their products at AEC TRADE CENTER – PANTIP WHOLESALE DESTINATION from April 1, 2021 onwards. AEC Trade Center would like to invite all entrepreneurs in the food industry to join forces and succeed together at the “FOOD CHAPTER SUMMER FEST” which starts on April 1 - May 31, 2021. This will establish a foundation leading to our ‘FOOD DESTINATION CENTER’ which will start on June 4, 2021.
