BCCT, in collaboration with AustCham, Beluthai, German, French and The Netherlands-Thai Chambers of Commerce, invites you to attend Phuket Business Dinner on Thursday 7 December at Amari Phuket.

The tragic fire in Grenfell Tower London was a stark reminder of the danger of fire in high rise buildings. During this 1 hour session we will review the key principles of detection, protection, containment and egress of fires in high rise buildings then consider what went wrong in this event.
