The legendary hospitality of Thailand has long been a popular choice for meetings and events in Southeast Asia. Its vibrant capital, Bangkok, is a top international conference destination, and its first-class meeting venues are renowned for their outstanding service.
Bangkok is easy to get to, thanks to the new Suvarnabhumi International Airport; opened in 2006, the airport handles over 40 million passengers per year from most major cities in North America, Asia, and Europe, and connects to the city via via electric rail, bypassing Bangkok's traffic jams. The Don Mueang International Airport, located about 30 minutes north of the city, also serves as a major Bangkok travel hub.
Major Bangkok convention venues include the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center (BITEC), a modern center about five miles from the city center, which spans several lage, multi-purpose halls, grand banquet rooms, and state-of-the-art meeting rooms. The stunning Queen Sirkit National Convention Center (QSNCC), located about 11 miles from the city center, is known for its modern technology and beautiful Thai architecture and décor.
