The Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) has announced its readiness to become "The Ultimate World Class Event Platform for All” and has revealed the list of upcoming international events that are keen on moving from their original venues overseas to the newly renovated QSNCC. By highlighting the potential of the venue and its facilities, QSNCC seeks to elevate the Thai event platform and convention center to become a leader in Asia.
Mr. Sakchai Phatrapreechakul, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), N.C.C. Management & Development Co., Ltd. Said: "This re-opening of the new Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) has great potential to accommodate all kinds of events and activities as well as being suitable for all lifestyles. We are expecting that the number of visitors will be over 13 million annually, more than double the 6 million visitors per year prior to the renovation. We are no longer just a convention center but are transforming into an inspiring world class event platform for all. The new QSNCC will re-open to the public in September this year. We are convinced that there will be all kinds of event hosts and exhibitors who will choose QSNCC as their venue. This will enhance QSNCC’s reputation as an industry pioneer for both Thai and Asian event venues.”
“The new QSNCC is determined to deliver a positive impact for all Thai people. We are keen to play a crucial role in stimulating the country’s overall economic growth by driving forward relevant businesses including event organizers, hotels, shopping centers, and public transport system, all of which will greatly benefit from the advanced development of the MICE industry with a tremendously increasing number of organizers and visitors to events held at the Center, as well as bring value to the surrounding communities from various public amenities available here,” added Sakchai.
With the objective of being more than a "convention center" that facilitates "MICE," the new QSNCC has been designed to accommodate all practical needs in terms of event spaces and facilities with the ultimate flexibility and simultaneous support for all types of event functions. The center also has the ability to assist and manage all types of activities, including logistics and transportation. In addition, with the convenience of being directly connected to an MRT station, the venue is easy to reach for all comers while safety features and facilities guarantee a high quality of life in sustainable surroundings that comply with global standards.
The reputation of the new QSNCC has already earned the trust of several major international event exhibitors and the venue has attracted new high-profile events from various countries to Thailand for the first time. These include:
