Pattaya, the 27th of September 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Held from the Pattaya City Hall, a preliminary meeting on this years Countdown to 2011 festival agreed to an allocation of Bt12.5 million for this year’s event.

Considerably exceeding the budget set for the 2010 event, Pattaya City and Chon-Buri administrators hope to raise the profile of the event across Thailand, drawing in crowds to boost a flailing tourism industry.

At the meeting administrators considered a number of proposed events, concerts and activities for the popular festival which is due to be staged from the 25-31 of December. An event organiser has yet to be interacted over the planning for the festival.

Supported by Bt10 million from the Chon-Buri Administration and Bt2.5 million from Pattaya City Hall, this years festival looks set to be bigger and better than its predecessors, with a significant portion of the budget set to be allocated for popular New Years Eve fireworks displays.

Along with the traditional fireworks celebrations, other events scheduled include music concerts, cultural performances and a variety of shows and competitions.

Security, parking, traffic, management and fair practice issues were also discussed by administrators who are looking to highlight Pattaya’s New Years celebrations as the standout event of its kind in Thailand.

At present, no further details have been released to the media, as the project is still in its organisational phase.
