The Hyatt Regency Hua Hin was the venue of the second Hua Hin Business Network (HHBN) gathering. Around 150 of Hua Hin’s business leaders from a diverse range of prominent businesses had the opportunity to meet or renew business acquaintances and form relationships of mutual benefit. The outgoing Board of Directors previously determined that this new organisations would be formed to replace the Skal Club of Hua Hin & Cha Am. This is intended to expand the existing Membership which was restricted to travel and tourism professionals in managerial positions.
The mission of HHBN is to cultivate and develop friendship and business contacts between members and be a recognised and trusted voice in the business community. Apart from an opportunity to enjoy the company of those attending there was a presentation from Brian Anderson, the Sustainable Development Manager at Chiva-Som International Health Resorts, who outlined details of an online survey now underway which gives the opportunity to comment on Hua Hin as a sustainable tourism destination. Additionally James McMenaman, the Club Manager of the MahaSamutr Country Club, presented his vision for the new HHBN website.
This will build a greater awareness of the organisation and be a resource for those who are looking for information about Hua Hin businesses and activities. One of the features will be a ‘Job Bank’ where members can list job vacancies. The HHBN is rapidly developing into a valuable Hua Hin community resource and promises to bring a new cohesion to the business community.
