All the affected C&I properties in Krabi are now operational, while in Phuket, the Le Meridien property remains closed, but is set to open at the beginning of June.
Maggie Greenstock, UK and Ireland meetings and incentives manager at the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau said: "Mice business is slowly picking up. The C&I market tends to be more cautious than the leisure sector, but there is so much goodwill from organisers."
Agencies are, however, looking tentatively beyond the traditionally favoured regions, according to Global Marketing Connections, the UK representation office for DMC Destination Asia. Director of sales Mercedes Conde-Nieto stated: "Agencies seem willing to support the destination and, while Phuket's popularity continues, there is an increase in interest for Chiang Mai and Koh Samui.
"Hua Hin is also on the rise due to its excellent hotels and ease of access from Bangkok," she added.
