The revamped Queen Sirikit National Convention Center which is scheduled to be opened in September, will include, a new retail mall developed under the concept of active lifestyle, to attract health and fitness enthusiasts among urban workers and families in Bangkok.
QSNCC retail space is expected to expand from 7,200 square metres to 11,000 square metres divided into various zones from food and beverage, event support and active lifestyle. Thailand’s flagship store of a leading sports accessory brand will be located here.
“With our capabilities in providing a full range of services for all types of events, QSNCC will be the new event platform destination in Asia. The redeveloped QSNCC is expected to attract over 13 million visitors per year once it is reopened,” said Mr. Sakchai Pattarapreechakul, president of N.C.C. Management & Development.
An added advantage of the retail mall located within the QSNCC is that, it’s accessible with the venue’s linkage to Bangkok’s mass rapid transit system. QSNCC is also surrounded by 72 hectares of Benjakitti Forest Park, the new green lung of Bangkok with facilities for sports and recreational activities.
To date, 20 percent of retail space of the mall has been taken up and is slated that leased space, to increase by 40 percent the first quarter of this year.
