Bangkok Study Trip in March, 2017

PPK Malaysia organized its first Study Tour in 2017 with 40 participants from 14 different malls in and around Malaysia.

During the 4 days tour, we visited eleven ( 11 ) shopping malls in and around Bangkok with eight ( 8 ) malls in the city and three ( 3 ) suburban malls. These were the most popular malls that have various concepts, designs and unique attractions which made them so successful.

They were:

CBD Malls – Terminal 21, Central Embassy, Central World, Emporium, Emquartier, Siam Paragon, Siam Center and Siam Discovery

Suburban Malls – Asiatique, Central Festival Eastiville and Gateway Ekamai

The participants gained valuable insights, especially from the malls which gave comprehensive briefings and also conducted walk-about tour with their marketing and customers services personnel to assist along the way. It was indeed a fruitful trip for all and the feedback received was very encouraging from the participants.

All in all, it was a very successful trip and we look forward to more of such study tours with you in the near future, kop kun krub!
