New venues to open in the coming years

Thailand's business event offering is expanding with the launch of the riverside True ICONSIAM Hall (12,000 sqm of space) and Capella Hotel Bangkok, soon opening in the capital city. In 2022, the renovated Queen Sirikit National Convention Center will open offering 55,000 sqm of event space. Three five-star hotels and a new special venue (4,700 sqm of function space) will join the wide range of venues in Bangkok. ICONSIAM is being developed by three of Thailand's most successful businesses, including Siam Piwat, the owner and operator of prestigious retail developments such as Siam Center, Siam Paragon, and Siam Discovery; Magnolia Quality Development Corporation (MQDC), the owner and developer of luxury quality residential and mixed-use projects; and multi-national conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Group. Alongside the venue openings, TCEB has launched '7 Magnificent MICE Themes' focusing on the country's key and unique attractions: history and culture, exhilarating adventures, team building, CSR & green meetings, beach bliss, lavish luxury and culinary journeys. Highlights for delegates include taking part in the restoration of marine life in Pattaya and learning about the production of organic coffee from a local community in Chiang Mai.
