KING POWER GROUP joins tourism boosting PHUKET SANDBOX campaign

King Power Group, in supporting the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), joins the tourism boosting PHUKET SANDBOX initiative by offering incoming tourists countless exciting benefits from the group’s businesses and services.

Accentuating the “Vaccinated & Hygienic” slogan, King Power never ceases to surprise the world as a global leader in the travel and retail business whose “new normal” travelling ethos is set to assure travellers’ confidence.

On the occasion of King Power’s participation in the Phuket Sandbox campaign on July 1, 2021, Apichet Srivaddhanaprabha, assistant chief operating officer of King Power Group, commented that “King Power Group is ready to help boost the country’s economy which has faced a setback due to the Covid-19 situation by focusing on tourism as a key strategy, as we can see in the launch of PHUKET SANDBOX project. King Power, as a private company, is already participating in several national-level campaigns to promote Thai tourism, such as the “Thailand smiles with you” project which emphasises the unique Thai smile as a significant “welcome to Thailand” reference in the mind of tourists. Our latest contribution is the participation in the tourism-boosting “Phuket is now open” campaign which is organised under the “Amazing Thailand, Now even more Amazing” concept. This campaign makes use of sport to attract tourism – Sport tourism – through three football players of Leicester City FC, this year’s FA Cup champions. They appear in the promotional video “Amazing Moments in Phuket” which will be broadcast in foreign media as an initiative to attract targeted travellers to visit Phuket as part of the PHUKET SANDBOX project.

For the reopening of Phuket’s door to tourists, King Power, as a global leader in the travel and retail business in Phuket, joins the government’s PHUKET SANDBOX campaign and stresses its role as the key player in the business.

The new measure “SAFETY SHOPPING at King Power Phuket” is here to ensure that travellers who pass the COVID-19 screening protocol at Phuket International Airport will shop with confidence at King Power retail stores and services in the terminal, since we strictly follow the KING POWER CARE POWER hygiene measures and practise D-M-H-T-T (Distancing, Mask-wearing, Hand-washing, Testing temperature, and ThaiChana tracing app).

Staff members on duty are fully vaccinated according to the tourist service protocol, and are trained to strictly follow virus-prevention measures.

King Power Phuket’s downtown store is also ready to serve with confidence under the SHA-plus public health measure according to Phuket City administration and Tourism Authority of Thailand. Our downtown staff members are also fully vaccinated. Strict hygienic measures are carried out in all service areas.

Under the campaign “KING POWER PHUKET SANDBOX: Shop Eat Play Stay Safe”, we aim to stimulate tourists’ spending by offering promotional benefits in all our businesses and services in order to accentuate the image of Thailand as the ultimate shopping and dining paradise.
