Visa to Thailand
Participants do not need an invitation letter. It is advisable to come on a tourist visa. Attendance to a workshop/conference  is not a long course lasting weeks or months where business/education visa would be required. 

 
Visa requirement is different for different nationalities.  Some countries' nationals can enter Thailand without a visa (Visa Exemption), while other countries nationals can enter Thailand on a "Visa on Arrival" basis.  Please see more details in the following weblink from Ministry of Foreign Affairs Thailand - http://www.consular.go.th/main/contents/filemanager/VISA/Visa%20on%20Arrival/VOA_25_08_58.pdf
