They were inspired by the monthly corporate network functions of the popular Lighthouse Club (LHC).
The intention was to grow an ANNUAL corporate GALA network.
Movers & Shakers held its first function in September 2009 which turned out to be a great success with over 400 guests attending. The following events were executed in 2010 and 2011 resulting in over 1,000 attendees for both events in total.
To-date, in access of THB 625,000 (US$ 20,000) was raised by M&S; donated to domestic charitable causes in Thailand. It has become the biggest annual Corporate Network event on the Eastern Seaboard of Thailand.
Beginning 2010, the M&S founder became Chairman of the Lighthouse Club Pattaya committee.
The monthly LHC network events grew from 20-30 attendees to an average of 300 guests per function.
Since 2009; together M&S and LHC raised over THB 4 Million (US$ 130,000) for charity.
As it seems that there is a mutual growing interest of business entrepreneurs from Bangkok looking at the Eastern Seaboard vice versa, we have now decided to introduce a MONTHLY M&S corporate network event to Thailand’s metropolis BANGKOK.
We expect an inter-action between Bangkok and the Eastern Seaboard network activities that might bridge the gap between both hubs.
In Bangkok Movers & Shakers organizes a monthly corporate charity networking function.
Organized in 1st class venues on a hand-picked date each month ensuring there is no clash with any other major event.
These functions will mostly be held from 06:30 pm till 09:00 pm; followed by an occasional ‘after-function’, subject to venue and interest.
We have opted to Friday evenings in order to gain more attendees from the Eastern Seaboard.
Targeted are the corporate executives from Bangkok based companies and Eastern Seaboard industrials.
Both Thai as well as foreign nationals. Male & female.
The 1st monthly corporate networking function was organized in February 2012 and in due course these M&S functions have become very popular.
Once a year a Movers & Shakers will continue to stage its GALA event on the Eastern Seaboard and probably also an annual GALA event once a year in Bangkok (2013).
We have established an intensive cross-link between both regions ESB and Bangkok.
The quality of M&S networking is not in any way limited by nationality, business-category or interest.
It provides an interesting group of professionals that are focused to grow their contact-base in Asia with a focus on Thailand.
Bangkok Post article (May 2012) about Bangkok networking: http://www.bangkokpost.com/print/291570/
We are very fond on having an extensive database with contacts all across Thailand and SE-Asia.
Thru social media like Facebook and the official website of M&S we reach up to over 500,000 unique individuals over 20 different countries.
ALL marketing activities are conducted ‘in-house’, supported by various media both in print,
e-Marketing and Radio broadcast.
The ESB events are always heavily exposed on media by mostly domestic media-partners.
Please visit the following link (2:04 min) to experience the 2010 annual function on the ESB;
last years’ 2011 event was covered by Pattaya mail in both TV-coverage (37:04 min) as well as a
double page centerfold in its weekly newspaper.
For guest-testimonials you may want to visit the office M&S website.
Each event is known for its professional photographers covering the mingling crowd.
Photo-galleries are posted immediately after each event and ‘circulate the world’ on Facebook as many people enjoy “to be seen” at these kind of events.
Movers & Shakers events are covered by one of our strategic media partners Bangkok Video Productions. Nice overview footage and Spotlight interviews of some of our distinguished guests can be seen at: bkkvideoproductions YOUTUBE link.
Coverage will not be limited to Bangkok but will include the Eastern Seaboard as well.
