The new development built by Khon Kaen Buri Company will be managed by Centara.

The 12-storey venue has 196 rooms and the largest hotel convention centre in Khon Kaen. 

The Khon Kaen Convention Hall can hold up to 2,000 attendees seated theatre-style and 2,500 for a reception, while the Prachasamosorn Ballroom has capacity for 700 delegates theatre-style and 350 for banquets.

The convention hall has access to an outdoor swimming pool, which is surrounded by a landscaped garden suitable for cocktail receptions and hosted events.

There are also six meeting rooms for breakout sessions and a spa.

Centara Hotels & Resorts senior vice president for sales and marketing Chris Bailey said the hotel would become the "hub for MICE business in this part of Thailand".

"In addition to being a superb hotel for leisure and business travellers in the centre of this very busy region, it also strengthens our marketing operation for the MICE sector," he said.

Centara also has a hotel and convention centre in nearby Udon Thani.
