When Thailand offered its proposal to host the 46th World Bank/ International Monetary Fund Annual Meetings in Bangkok to the 40th World Bank/IMF Conference in Seoul, South Korea, in 1985, this initial step set into motion a series of developments of great significance to the nation as a whole.

Following an evaluation of Thailand's social and economic readiness, Thailand's proposal was accepted. In September 1987, the Minister of Finance, Mr.Suthee Singhasaneh, and the Bank of Thailand Governor, Mr. Kamchorn Sathirakul, jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the Royal Thai Government and the World Bank/IMF reaffirming Thailand's commitment to host the 46th Annual Conference in Bangkok between October 1 - 15, 1991. Thailand thus became the 17th host country and 15th Asian host country of the World Bank/IMF Conference following India in 1958, Japan in 1964, the Philippines in 1976 and South Korea in 1985.

As events unfolded, a decision was made by The Royal Thai Government to initiate the construction of a national convention centre befitting the importance and grandeur of the distinguished world event.

The stage was set for the inauguration of the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre. When the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre, Thailand’s first purpose-built convention centre, opened its doors to welcome the 46th World Bank /IMF Annual Meetings in Bangkok between October 1 – 15, 1991, the inaugural event, it heralded the emergence of a new industry sector in Thailand – the Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibition (MICE) industry.

Since our legendary inauguration, the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre, or QSNCC, has enjoyed the great honour and privilege of welcoming events of distinction and we are proud to have contributed to their success.

QSNCC's impeccable track record was put to the ultimate test when Thailand offered to host the 10th Session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD X) 2000. Following the phenomenal success of this honoured event, QSNCC, the pride of the nation, continues to be the venue of choice when the world's leaders convene.

Infinitely flexible in its applications, the Centre is well-positioned to serve a broad continuum of functions ranging from international, regional or domestic events. These can be conference, convention, seminar, exhibition, trade fair, sport event, concert, cultural performance, product launch, reception, ball, banquet - the list is virtually endless.

Purpose-built for the grandest national and international events, particularly conferences and exhibitions, the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre bears the nation's identity in its architectural form and decorative details. The architectural style of the national convention centre is unique and exemplary of "Thai Hi-Tech Architecture". It is also equipped with advanced engineering systems corresponding to the architecture and the expected functionality of the venue.
