Eight Bangkok events postponed
Sirima Eamtako, Bangkok, October 25, 2011

BANGKOK, which has been warned to prepare for floodwaters travelling from the suburban areas into the inner city, is seeing a postponement of events scheduled in the Thai capital for this and next month.

Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) has reported postponements of four events scheduled for October. The Happy Workplace Forum 2011, the CSR Thailand 2012, the Furniture Fair and a concert by Kasikorn Bank have been postponed to either December or January.

Four other events scheduled for November – the Royal Project, the Krungsri Auto Car, a Carabao concert and the Commart – have also been postponed.


Meanwhile, World Didac Asia 2011, to be held in QSNCC, is still confirmed for October 26 to 28.

QSNCC’s newly appointed president, Sakchai Pattarapreechakul, said: “Our first priority is to offer utmost assistance to all concerns, including facilitating the postponements of events, and providing 500 food packs daily to flood victims from October 21.”


He added that it was too early at press time to estimate the impact from the flood.

However, Sakchai said that in its initial assessment, the centre had performed according to targets in the first 11 months of its fiscal year with the exception of its 12th month (November), depending on how the flood situation unfolds.
