NU SKIN has chosen Phuket as the destination for its 3,000-pax incentive, which will take place from April 20-25, barely a year after the Thai island played host to more than 15,000 top achievers from Amway China.
“A private beach party will be organised for the Nu Skin group at Angsana Laguna Phuket. The entire beachfront of the hotel will be closed off to the public, while a custom stage will be set up in front of the Xana Beach Club and performers flown in from overseas to entertain the group,” said Thanate Kienpotiramard, managing director of BIC Phuket, which is handling the production and events support for the group.
According to Thanate, the Phuket-based firm has spent the past four to five months preparing for the group’s arrival, and has Mandarin speakers in his team to liaise with the China-based events house hired by Nu Skin to ensure that all requirements are met.
In addition to the private beach party, the Nu Skin group will also have a meeting and dinner gathering at Phuket Fantasea.
“The Nu Skin beach party will be the largest outdoor function we have ever handled,” said Thanate, adding that Phuket’s “unpredictable weather also presents a major challenge, as it is now the rainy season”.
Mobile marquees will be constructed to provide shelter and raincoats will be prepared as part of the event’s wet weather contingency.
The beachfront party will also be the biggest-ever event hosted by Angsana Laguna Phuket, with the set-up expected to take four days, according to general manager, Jerry John.
Said John: “The biggest challenge in hosting large events is to ensure that the service provided is of the highest standard, without affecting the smaller number of other hotel guests who could be inconvenienced by both the large flow of (in-house) guests as well as event attendees.
“This is, however, not an issue with Nu Skin because the group is occupying the entire hotel. And given our experience with the large Amway China event last year, we are in a better position to anticipate challenges and prepare for them.”
