KRYSTAL PRAKAIKAEW NA-RANONG, THE SLATE, SHE’S GOING…

July 23, 2018

Further East is all about connecting Asia’s best buyers, suppliers and media in a truly incredible and inspirational setting. It’s a place where the continent’s luxury travel elite come together to grow high-end inbound tourism, start long-lasting collaborations and leave with a feeling of genuine friendship. We’ve been hearing from some of these bold, independently minded brands that have already secured their place at this groundbreaking event.


Designed by visionary architect Bill Bensley, The Slate is a luxuriously crafted design masterpiece and a striking avant-garde expression of true Phuket heritage. A true original that embraces the city’s rich elemental history – melding old traditions with wondrous new inspirations – they’re a perfect fit for our unique global community and it’s no surprise they’re joining us on Seminyak Beach this November. Managing Director Krystal Prakaikaew Na-Ranong told us why.

We’re going Further East…

…To meet exceptional buyers

“From my experience with Further East’s sister show, LE Miami, over the past three years, I trust in the quality of buyers that we will meet. Beyond Luxury Media has brought together buyers who look for something truly unique in travel experiences.”
