CLUB MEETINGS ARE SUSPENDED DUE TO CURRENT COVID 19 OUTBREAK IN THAILAND
 

Effective 18 April 2021 until further notice, the Governor of Chonburi Province (includes Pattaya) has banned meetings in conference rooms, banquet halls, or anywhere people gather.


WHEN WILL MEETINGS RESUME?

Although we have had several ask when Club meetings will return, at this time it is something we are unable to answer. 

The current COVID-19 outbreak continues without significant slowing in the number of infections.  The Government while relaxing some restrictions continues to recommend against any large gatherings except under very strict control.  COVID-19  vaccine for Expats in Pattaya is promised but it is unknown when doses will be made available.  Until the "picture" becomes clearer, it is currently not possible to predict when Club meetings may resume.





Next Meeting

No events available

The Meeting Room is on the Mezzanine Floor and opens at 9am. The Meeting Program begins at 10:30am.
