This was posted on the ITG website. I'm taking a suit, since I'm playing. If I was merely an attender I probably wouldn't have one. FYI... "Greetings From Bangkok, I am looking forward to seeing many of you of you at the ITG Conference. I hope you will enjoy it. I have a special request, that perhaps you can help me with! On Thursday, June 23rd, Jens Lindemann, Paul Merkelo, David Hickman, and several others will be playing with a newly formed orchestra, which is called the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra. This orchestra will have its very first performance at the ITG conference, and will become Thailand's very first full-season orchestra. The board of director's for the TPO are inviting many Thai VIP's, and there will be at least 4 television stations covering this event. The TPO Board of Directors want the TPO to get off to a great start, and would like to make a good impression on the public. They would like to have concert attendees dress up for the performance. Preferably suit and tie. I know that this isn't the usual ITG conference attire, but you have the potential to help in the formation of a new orchestra. In the age when orchestra's are going bankrupt and closing their doors, the chance to have a new group like this, in Thailand, is wonderful. So, if you can manage along a suit or coat and tie to wear, you would be helping to support arts in Thailand in a big way. Sincerely, Joe Bowman (Conference Host)"
