On June 7th 2010, Suchart Hirankanokkul – the President of Thai Southern Hotel Association (TSHA), Somboon Jirayus – the President of Phuket Tourist Association, Methee Tanmanatrakul – Consultant to TSHA, and Bangornrat Shinaprayoon – Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)’s Phuket office all led representatives from World Advertising Association or WAA to meet Wichai Praisa-ngob – the Governor of Phuket, and Paiboon Upattising – the President of Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization (PPAO), to discuss about preparation for thee ‘Global Advertising Awards’ that would be held in Phuket on February 20th – 25th, 2011.

The representatives from WAA said that there were eight countries & cities that had offered themselves to host the event. Finally WAA decided to choose Phuket as a hosting place for the event because the island was ready in many aspects, especially the international airport that would be the main way people travelling to join the event. He commented that the event would be a good channel to express what Phuket is to the advertising designers and hopefully, they would use the island to be a location of their works in future.
