New Hub Mice City In Northeastern Thailand
 

 

Khon Kaen

A Hub of Activity in Northeast Thailand

Khon Kaen is the major commercial and educational center of Isan, Thailand’s fascinating northeastern region. It is also a popular destination for tourists looking for rich culture and a glimpse of the traditional Thai way of life: the famous hand-woven Mudmee silk is produced here, and numerous significant historical and archaeological sites dot the pristine, pastoral landscape.

As for business, Khon Kaen is where the Thai government operates the “Economic Corridors Development Project.” This campaign connects border areas of Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam, and Khon Kaen is the center for trade and logistics, as well as the gateway to Indochina and South China. These factors have set the stage for Khon Kaen to become another of Thailand’s leading MICE destinations.

The city has no problem serving large numbers of business events travelers as Khon Kaen International Airport welcomes them, and Khon Kaen University Convention Centre keeps them happy by providing flexible, high-quality facilities at an unrivalled value. In addition, most of the city’s 4- and 5-star hotels offer space for smaller, more personalized events.

Khon Kaen has become not only a regional MICE hub, but a global one as well; one that connects international events participants such as the APEC Ministerial Meeting, the International Conference on Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Thai-ASEAN Trade Fair with the region’s distinctive culture, gracious hospitality, and ultimately, fun and exciting events.
