The Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) announced its readiness to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC 2022) meeting, to be held on 14-19 November 2022 under the theme of "Open. Connect. Balance." The meeting’s aim is to promote free trade and investment, economic growth and development, and cooperation among 21 economies in the Asia-Pacific region, leading to the creation of inclusive and sustainable economic growth for the benefit and prosperity of people across the region.
“After the official opening of the new QSNCC on October 15, 2022, we have served as a venue for several national and international events, all of which have been widely praised as a great success by their organizers and attendees alike,” Sakchai Pattarapreechakul, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), N.C.C. Management & Development Co., Ltd. said.
“To be honored to host the upcoming APEC 2022 forum and to welcome leaders and delegates from 21 economies in Asia-Pacific, QSNCC will play a pivotal role in being the ‘living room’ of Thailand and a representative of all Thai people. We are ready in all aspects to offer warm and welcoming hospitality to all attendees at the event to ensure that APEC 2022 will be a memorable achievement that brings pride to Thai people and the nation,” Sakchai said.
Positioned to be “The Ultimate Inspiring World Class Event Platform for All”, QSNCC confirmed its full readiness to host APEC 2022 with the high capacity of space and a comprehensive range of facilities to support world-class events thanks to an area of 300,000 square meters and cutting-edge technologies for a wide range of events. The venue also offers a full range of services of international standard encompassing stringent safety, hygiene and cleanliness measures, and high-quality, nutritional food and beverages of on-site catering, as well as a team of professionals with extensive experience in organizing world-class events while demonstrating the true spirit of Thai hospitality in line with the unique beauty of Thai culture to an international audience. All of these elements will be crucial for the success of this world-class event and make a powerful impression on delegates and visitors from across the Asia-Pacific region.
The newly renovated QSNCC marks a new chapter of success for the nation by hosting APEC 2022, in line with its eminent history of being the site of numerous high-level events. During its inauguration in 1991 the venue hosted the 46th Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund.
As the host of APEC 2022, Thailand is well-positioned to elevate its role in strengthening economic cooperation in Asia-Pacific, an emerging region touted as an important part of the global economy in coming decades. The event also helps drive the Thai economy by generating income from all relevant sectors, including hospitality, tourism, food and beverage, and other related services.
QSNCC is keen to join hands with Thai people to welcome APEC leaders and delegates to “The Ultimate Inspiring World Class Event Platform for All” during 14 - 19 November 2022.
