Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, 27 February-7 March 2002.

The Prestigious Venue

Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC), located in the heart of Bangkok, is a world-class conference and exhibition center with floor area of 65,000 sq. meters. State-of-the-art facilities include telecommunication, Simultaneous Interpretation System, fully-equipped business center, lakeside restaurant, bank, post office and convenient store. World-class accommodations and shopping malls are within walking distance. Major expressways and sky train serve the area making access to QSNCC even easier.


The building layout adopts the plan of a traditional Thai-style house of the Central Plains of Thailand which comprises a cluster of rooms built on the same platform and arranged in a hierarchical order.

From the entrance portal frame, an open court leads to the main living area, followed by the sleeping quarters and the kitchen, all connected by either an open or a covered verandah.

The layout of the convention center is an adaptation of this traditional style. The building complex stretches out horizontally. The entrance hall stands at the front. The Plenary Hall represents the main living area flanked by the ancillaries- meeting rooms and exhibition/office area. All functional areas are connected by hallways under one roof resembling a classical Thai house of the old days.
