Thailand’s rip-roaring Masala Wedding Fair is back, funky and vibrant as ever

Bangkok – Thailand’s largest and most popular Indian wedding exhibition, The Masala Wedding Fair, is marking its 10th anniversary this year at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park hotel between June 10-11. It is a one-stop shop for trade buyers, consumers and the general public keen to tap the multi-million baht opportunity for planning and hosting Indian weddings. Admission is FREE.

This year, the fair has attracted more than 100 local and international exhibitors, including F&B suppliers, fashion and jewellery houses, health and wellness and photography/filming services. In previous years, the two-day fair has attracted key opinion Leaders, influencers, community members and media from the Indian market, both locally and abroad. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend this year.

Organised by the Masala publishing group, owners of the popular publication of the same name targeted at the Thai-Indian community, the fair is supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Thai Indian Weddings Association.

For many years, Thailand has been a first-choice destination for both local Indian couples and those coming from abroad. Hundreds of high-spending, long-staying guests fly in from all parts of the world, making these weddings major revenue generators for the host destinations and local communities.

I attended the show on June 10, meeting up with the publishing group’s owner Ram Sachdev, a long-time friend, and his son Raghav, the publisher. Thai companies scouting for the many business opportunities should find time to attend on June 11. For obvious reasons, I would recommend taking public transport.
