Thailand boasts some of the biggest and best event and exhibition centers in the whole of Southeast Asia, so it comes as no surprise that many of the region’s most important annual events are held here. The country has actually been promoted by the Thai government as a ‘MICE’ (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events) hub, opening the door to business tourism and improved trade throughout the country.
This page details some of the best exhibitions you will find in Thailand, mostly around the major cities and built up areas such as Bangkok and Pattaya (Chonburi).
Exhibition & Fairs Thailand: Bangkok
The Thai capital is home to some of the best event and exhibition centers around, such as BITEC Arena at Bangna, IMPACT Arena and the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in downtown Bangkok. There is also The Bangkok Convention Center at CentralWorld, but this venue tends to hold fewer events compared to the rest. As well as major international concerts and dance music festivals, these venues stage huge trade shows, retail exhibitions and conferences, most of which are held over multiple days.
These can include everything and anything from sports expos, health and beauty, parenting conferences, motorshows, tech, logistics, architecture, hospitality, food, media, education and more.
Exhibition & Fairs Thailand: Pattaya
Pattaya (and the wider Chonburi province) is another major player in Thailand’s ever-growing MICE game. In fact, the city was even made a leading example by the Thailand Conference and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) for other destinations such as Chiang Mai and Phuket to follow.
The city is popular for tradeshows and exhibitions for several reasons, such as its close proximity to Bangkok (140 kilometers), its fun tourist attractions and prime coastal location. Pattaya’s infrastructure is also well-suited to business events, with hundreds of three, four and five-star hotels as well as good travel links to the capital.
In terms of venues, there are three major spots in total: the Eastern Convention Centre at Ambassador City Jomtien Hotel, the Eastern National Sports Training Centre and the Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Hall (PEACH) at Royal Cliff Beach Resort. Similarly to Bangkok, dozens of different industries hold special events – both big and small over the course of 12 months. Stay tuned to this page to see the latest.
Exhibition & Fairs Thailand: Phuket
Phuket doesn’t tend to attract the same amount of international events, exhibitions, and trade shows compared to cities in the central regions, but the are several venues capable of holding thousands of people at a time to hold sporting, cultural, food, hospitality and health events for the region.
