The new Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) is under construction set to be opened in September next year.
NCC Management & Development Co Ltd (NCC), an affiliated company under the management of its shareholder Thai Beverage Plc, owned by Thai billionaire and founder Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, demolished the previous Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) to make way for the redevelopment project.
Under a contract signed with the Treasury Department, it will build and become the owner of the new property for 50 years.
It will be a three-storey complex of 180,000 sqm, five times the size of the existing one, with a underground parking lot for 3,000 vehicles. It will also be linked via a tunnel to a station of the mass-transit MRT network.
Thai Obayashi and Design 103 will take charge of construction and design work under a budget of Bt6 billion.
“The new Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre will be able to accommodate domestic and international conferences and exhibitions for more than 10,000 peoples,” said Charoen.
The new and world-class standard Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) will be the largest and the most cutting-edged centre, located in the heart of the Bangkok CBD and set to change the landscape of the Rama IV district. This project will boost up a new era of MICE (Meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) industry which plays an important part in Thailand’s tourism scene.
