As IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center is shifting from an event venue provider to a unique, leisure, and lifestyle center that artfully blends MICE-related events, dinning, shopping, and entertainment, Cosmo Bazaar has been incorporated into our major expansion project to accommodate the surge of local and tourist arrivals. Bangkok Land Public Company Limited, the investor of IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd, has made an announcement of the Cosmo Bazaar project to the press recently to bring an unparalleled experience to visitors, making us one of the most vibrant cities in Asia.

Our venue transformation also includes new entertainment complexes to serve the need of local as well as global customers. The uniqueness along with modern design of interiors and exteriors has attracted attention of the public and T.V. commercials. IMPACT Forum, Challenger, Outlet Square, and IMPACT Speed Park, the first electric gokarting facility in Thailand, have been frequently used for advertisings, new product launches, music videos and movies, and T.V. shows, just to name a few. Those facilities are a show piece of the vibrant Muang Thong Thani City.

Part of being a key active player in the MICE industry involves staying engaged and competitive in the market. In a recent interview of our general manager, Loy Joon How, he elaborated on the mentioned “In this day and age, myriad meeting venues elsewhere put a spotlight on the digital technologies. We at IMPACT underwent a plethora of venue expansions, infrastructure developments, and the latest technological innovation including digital transformation to stay relevant, meet the growing digital needs of customers, improve customer experience, and drive the economy of the nation. For that reason, we have recently upgraded our venue mobile app that allows our users to access real time information on traffic conditions, availability of car parks, Google directions to our halls, promotions, and events taking place at our venue. This is part of our efforts in enhancing visitor experience to our venue that also include the installations of more LED information displays around our venue.”
