InterContinental Bangkok: the ideal events’ hotel

One of the Thai capital’s leading luxury has been brought up to date following a huge renovation with conference space and more that will impress your groups

BANGKOK is much loved for its vibrancy, impressive palaces, delicious cuisine and, of course, as the capital of the Land of Smiles where business event delegates are given a heartfelt welcome. 

One of the Classic rooms given a fresh new look

To experience this combined with excellent facilities for conferences and meetings, look no further than the InterContinental Bangkok with its convention centre providing some of the city’s most spacious, technically equipped and versatile event facilities. 

InterContinental Bangkok, located in the heart of the capital’s Ratchaprasong district, reopened in summer 2023 following an extensive renovation project. All 381 guest rooms were given a fresh modernisation blended with Thai-heritage design. Among other upgrades, the rooftop pool has been enhanced with views of the city and a new California-inspired restaurant called SoCal has opened to join over six onsite dining and bar venues.

As a centrally located luxury hotel – and part of the famed IHG worldwide network of properties – conference and incentive groups will find a superb location for post-meeting activities, whether shopping, visiting cultural landmarks or other parts of Bangkok with the BTS Skytrain station of Chid Lom just steps away from the hotel.

In terms of getting back to business and those conferences and gala events, planners will find the InterContinental Bangkok’s function spaces conveniently positioned on one floor and equipped with high-end technology including a 4K LED mega-screen with advanced colour-mixing technology in the elegant Grand Ballroom.

Further tech enhancements come in the form of video-streaming, conferencing and recording capabilities, satellites communications, mobile projections systems, and a centrally controlled system for the LCD screens. All this is supported by the hotel’s Instant Meeting Service Team, which operates as a personal concierge to planners throughout the event, in addition to audiovisual technicians.

The Grand Ballroom set in theatre style

The Grand Ballroom is the largest of the hotel’s 19 function rooms and can host up to 1,000 guests for cocktails, 550 seated for banquet and 960 theatre-style. A dedicated exhibition, meanwhile, area offers a spacious hall with a capacity for 2,000 attendees.

What has not changed at the InterContinental Bangkok is the IHG brand’s dedication to service and hospitality. It’s a quality that extends to guests and business event attendees. Among the groups selecting the hotel are companies and associations from the pharmaceutical, finance and IT sectors.

Planners find the central location in Ratchaprasong ideal, with the hotel surrounded by corporate headquarters, embassies and a variety of enviable dining and retail choices.

That same dedication is delivered by the banqueting team as they customise  coffee breaks, themed luncheons or dinners to a particular group or occasion such as a company celebration or awards.

Planners can also expect their events to help contribute to environmental goals with reduced use of plastic. For example, water is served from glass bottles and paper boxes are only used for takeaway F&B, while the IHG Green Engage sustainability management tool is just one of the methods hotels in the group can minimise their impact on the environment.

Private dining room at the Fireplace Grill and Bar

Delegates are also well served by restaurants and bars at the hotel, ranging from the new SoCal with 50 wines from California and signature cocktails paired with dishes a speciality, to steaks at the Fireplace Grill and Bar – a Bangkok institution since 1966. Summer Palace is a favourite for modern Cantonese cuisine and offers 10 private dining rooms with the largest able to sit 20 guests. All-day dining and buffets with cooking stations are offered at Espresso, with cuisine covering Thai, Mediterranean, Chinese, Japanese and Middle Eastern favourites. Perfect for the conference lunch break.

Club InterContinental is located on Level 37 with impressive panoramic views of the city skyline and, along with the VIP preparation rooms on the convention floor, the club lounge offers another oasis for senior executives. For even more relaxation, there is the SPA InterContinental on Level 36, while Infinity Fitness on the same floor provides more of those Bangkok skyline vistas while your team works out.

Guest rooms and suites start on Level 17, again providing more city views, while the interiors are given Thai-inspired designs blending harmoniously with the contemporary touches of sleek Chromecast TVs, Bluetooth speakers, high-speed internet, mini bar and Nespresso machine. 

Whether for business or leisure, the InterContinental Bangkok is superbly located in the heart of the capital

As Thailand competes for a greater share of the MICE market and attracts more international conference and incentive groups, business event planners are becoming spoilt for choice. Location has to be balanced with quality meeting space and accommodation that meets the standards expected by corporate executives is also vital. 

The InterContinental Bangkok and its convention centre provide the space and technical capabilities demanded by conference planners seeking to create better events by leveraging audiovisual innovation. At the same time dining and accommodation choices abound at a location that offers the best of the InterContinental’s service while delegates can also embark on memorable post-conference excursions to enjoy Bangkok.
