Chiang Mai Convention Centre Nears Completion

May 21, 2012

According to the Thailand Ministry of Tourism and Sports (MoTS), the under-construction US$62 million Chiang Mai convention centre is now more than 99 percent complete and will reportedly open by December this year. The project has come under criticism for delays in its completion and not finding a suitable management company before its opening.

The MoTS has appointed Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) as interim management of the convention centre until a long-term management solution is found, with the involvement of Thai or foreign partners reportedly being considered.

Meanwhile, NCC Management and Development Co, operator of the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre (QSNCC), has publically expressed its interest in operating the Chiang Mai venue.

The Chiang Mai convention centre was first proposed in 2006. Reported facilities upon completion will include a plenary hall with 3,000 capacity, 32 meeting rooms and exhibition space for 476 booths.
