ANDE Contact Events Team

With its dynamic business landscape, Bangkok is the perfect setting to explore new opportunities for networking and continue our work to develop entrepreneurial ecosystems.

The conference will take place against the inspiring backdrop of the Chao Phraya River, where thought leaders, innovators, and change-makers in entrepreneurship and economic development will come together to celebrate ANDE’s 15th anniversary.

Agenda

ANDE’s flagship global conference annually convenes, offering a platform for member-driven sessions featuring innovative research, comprehensive reports, and industry-best practices aimed at fostering entrepreneurial ecosystems for small-scale enterprises.

We will send ANDE members a request for proposals to build the agenda. Their initiatives, encompassing roundtables, workshops, training sessions, and networking opportunities, align closely with both the thematic focus of the conference and ANDE’s core interest areas: promoting decent work, spurring economic growth, advancing gender equality, and driving climate action.

These focus areas are integral to the organization’s strategic commitment to financing and developing robust entrepreneurial ecosystems.

Venue and Registration

This year ANDE will convene at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers. The five-star hotel is located opposite ICON Siam and next to the Chaopraya River Cruise Port.
Registration will open immediately after our team confirms with the hotel management their full capacity for those days.

Site visits

For the first two days, participants in the Annual Conference will be engaged in networking events and sessions. On Thursday 12, we are planning a series of site visits. This additional program offers exceptional social connections and cultural enrichment opportunities. Site visits are curated to allow participants to meet with local entrepreneurs and learn more about Bangkok’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
