Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) or also known simply as Queen Sirikit Convention Center, is a convention center and exhibition hall located in Bangkok, Thailand. The center is regarded as a public asset according to the Thai Ministry of Finance’s Treasury Department.
 
However, it has been managed by N.C.C. Management & Development Co., Ltd., a private firm, since its opening in 1991. The QSNCC was built to host events, especially conferences and exhibitions and has hosted numerous international events. The QSNCC is also home to the Plenary Hall, a theatre style hall, which has a capacity of up to 6000 people.
 
In September 1987, Mr. Suthee Singhasaneh, the Minister of Finance, and Mr.Kamchorn Sathirakul, the Bank of Thailand Governor jointly signed a deal between the Royal Thai Government and the World Bank/International Monetary Fund (IMF) to host the 46th Annual Meeting of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group and IMF in Bangkok between October 1 to October 15, 1991.
 
As a result, the QSNCC was constructed as a sign of Thailand’s commitment to host this event. As for the architectural design, a leading Thai architectural firm was assigned to design a structure that reflected Thai culture and heritage for the QSNCC.
 
To ensure that the center would be completed by the scheduled time, a “Design Build” delivery system was used and the construction started in late 1989. The construction began with 100 designers and more than 1000 construction workers. The main construction was finished by June 1991, under budget and about 2 months before the scheduled date of August 1991. The construction was an unprecedented achievement as it was finished in only 16 months while a project of this magnitude is normally completed within 40 months.
 
Finally, on August 29, 1991, Their Majesties King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit officially opened the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center. The center was named after Queen Sirikit in honor of Her Majesty’s 60th Birthday.
 
The Queen Sirikit National Convention Center is located in Khlong Toei, on Ratchadaphisek Road between Sukhumvit Road and Rama IV Road. The location is near the heart of Bangkok’s business district.
