Venue & location

Phuket is not a location but an experience in itself and the chosen destination for Cisco India & SAARC Partner Confluence 2020. Majestic in appearance, a mix of luxury and comfort, filled with legendary stories and with an iconic status in the world – Phuket is a befitting location for this flagship partner event.
Thailand’s largest island at 543 square kilometres, Phuket is approximately the size of Singapore. Connected to the mainland by the Sarasin Bridge, Phuket is a province in its own right: the smallest in Thailand, but the next wealthiest after Bangkok. Phuket International Airport is located in the northwest section of the island. With its excellent beaches, rich history, world-class cuisine and luxurious accommodations, Phuket has become firmly established in the last two decades as one of Asia’s premier destinations.

Hotel Address

Le Méridien Phuket Beach Resort, Phuket
29 Soi Karon Nui Tambon Karon, Amphur Muang, Karon,
Phuket, 83100, Thailand

The Partner Confluence this year is being hosted at the Le Méridien Phuket Beach Resort, located on a lush cove on a secluded, pristine beach, against a canvas of sand and sea. Each day here will offer bold new discoveries with the resort’s top-rated facilities, world-class spa, inspired cuisine, and forward-thinking services that exceed guests' desires. The resort's rooms blend the creative and the elemental with authentic Thai accents against a soothing tropical setting. Style coupled with superb amenities allows for a stay of limitless exploration and renewal.
