Bangkok’s iconic Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) is set to reopen as Thailand’s biggest convention centre in September 2022, following a top-to-bottom renovation costing more than AUD $600 million.
The massive remodelling, which began in 2019, is expected to make the convention centre at least five times larger than its original building, offering a combined space of 78,500 square metres to accommodate up to 100,000 visitors per day.
Located in Bangkok CBD, the sleek and contemporary centre will be home to two main exhibition halls, two conference halls, and 50 meeting rooms, and an indoor car park off 2,700 parking spaces. State-of-the-art technology and facilities will also be on offer alongside a range of food halls and retail stores.
Director of TCC Assets (Thailand) Co., Ltd., (a subsidiary manager of the venue) Panote Sirivadhanabhakdi said that despite the global challenges of COVID-19, they were able to follow the long-term investment plan to complete the remodelling and fulfil their vision to transform the centre into Asia’s leading world-class convention centre.
“We believe that Thailand’s strategic location will benefit our stakeholders—organisers, exhibitors, customers, visitors—with a highly competitive ecosystem of the supply chain for endless business opportunities, great accessibilities, a good variety of destinations and hospitality services,” Sirivadhanabhakdi said.
“We are confident that these strengths will enable the QSNCC to capture the interests of leading international MICE and event businesses, promoters as well as operators, and to be known as Thailand’s ultimate inspiring world class event platform for all.”
