This convention mostly known as BITEC Bangna (Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Convention), is a very large convention center with around 50,000 square meters There’s also another place where I would introduce you. It is the most popular and largest venue that has been set up many interesting events and it is named Queen Sirikit National Convention Center.
This place is called in short as Queen Sirikit center. With around 65,000 square meters area, it can be set up more than 5 large events and more than 10 small events together in one place! But why this place? I have an answer for you.
In 1987, Thailand had selected to be the host of the 46th Annual Meeting of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group and IMF. The meeting event will be set up in Bangkok. So the planning to design a large scale of convention center was started in 1989 and the building process was finished in the middle of the year in 1991 as in the same time for World Bank Group and IMF meeting in October at the same year.
Feedback for 1st event in this convention center was great acceptable and got testimonial by all involved. So in later years, Queen Sirikit National Convention Center has been using for many type of meeting and events almost every month. Especially Book Fair, the large event that use mostly all area of the center by all publishers around Thailand to releasing their new books or sale in lower price than stores. This event can bring more than 100,000 visitors per day on weekend. This is scheduled at early April and the mid of October every year. Also, it consists of traveling event or home use product sales including graduation ceremony.
Why most of event in this place are successful? Because this venue are at the middle part of Bangkok that can be easily access by subway (MRT) at the station name Queen Sirikit center. And this place has many facilities for visitors including large food court, 7-11 convenience store, ATM, and various restaurant such as Starbuck or buffet for dinner, as well as information center too.
