Thailand hotel industry survey 2016
The first Thailand hotel industry report by Grant Thornton in Thailand indicates 89% see technology and digital strategies as important, whilst almost 2 of 3 have a digital strategy linked to the overall business plan.
A seller’s market is set to continue after a big year for M&A

The power of personalisation: Hotels' roadmap to 2020
Hotels are under pressure. Airbnb and other sharing economy providers are growing in popularity. More and more guests are booking through online travel agents (OTAs) that take substantial commissions. And when guests do arrive, they expect the same immediacy of service and control they get at home and at work through their smartphones.
Women in business 2016
On International Women’s Day, a global survey by Grant Thornton reveals that the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region continues to make slow progress in getting women into senior roles within companies. Globally, the proportion of senior business roles held by women stands at 24%, up slightly from 22% in 2015.
Grant Thornton and IOM signed MOU
Grant Thornton and The International Organization for Migration (IOM) signed a significant Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This MOU focusses on the complementary objectives, experience, strengths and skills of both international organisations with the ultimate aim to assist those with the greatest needs – the migrant labourers in the region.
Business optimism rose slightly in Q4 in Thailand from -8% to 4% in Grant Thornton's quarterly business survey. This was generally reflected across most areas showing increased optimism for areas like revenue, selling prices, exports, profitability, investment in new buildings, investment in plants and machinery, R&D, increased access to finance, and reduction in red tape.
