We have partnered with H.I.S. Tours Co., Ltd. to deliver the upcoming forum featuring former Prime Minister His Excellency Mr. Abhisit Vejjajiva and Professor Ingrid Piller of Macquarie University on Tuesday 02 July. Recognizing the importance of evidence-based research into linguistic diversity to the tourism industry, H.I.S. Tours has agreed to make a significant financial contribution to the forum. In recognition of the contribution from H.I.S. Tours, the forum is now titled H.I.S. Research and Industry Forum on Linguistic Diversity and Tourism in Amazing Thailand.
Founded in Tokyo in 1980, H.I.S. Tours has 147 branches in 107 cities abroad and 279 retail stores in Japan today. Therefore, serving the needs of their linguistically and culturally diverse customers in a wide range of linguistically and culturally diverse contexts is what H.I.S. Tours does on a daily basis. Therefore, it is of high importance to H.I.S. Tours to support academic research addressing linguistic and cultural diversity, as Bangkok-based H.I.S. Managing Director Mr. Makoto Kokubo explained to Dr. Kimie Takahashi.
The H.I.S. Research and Industry Forum on Linguistic Diversity and Tourism in Amazing Thailand will provide a unique opportunity for academics and industry leaders to gather together and seek ways of addressing language-related challenges in the Thai industry.
Mr. Kokubo will join the panel of experts, which also includes representatives of the Siam Society and VisitAsian.com to engage in this unique research and industry dialogue. Mr. Kokubo is exceptionally well-placed to contribute as H.I.S. Tours has been operating in Thailand in since 1997.
