Nongnooch International Convention And Exhibition Center is Pattaya’s latest convention center. The center boasts over 20,000 sq.m. of function area, which can be partitioned into various configurations to accommodate exhibitions, conferences and banquets for up to 10,000 persons.
The exhibition center is located within the Nongnooch Tropical Botanical Garden premises. The park consists of various themed gardens, dining venues and accommodation. While the park owner’s twin objective to serve social/educational responsibility and commercial needs of the nation is laudable, it is indeed a tough balancing act. Local kids may be drawn to the park by life-size dinosaur statues, but international MICE delegates may not find much interest in a static Jurassic park. And the presence of live animals within the park for photography, riding and entertainment purpose will not go down very well with many international MICE delegates increasingly concerned with animal welfare.
