The infamous ‘icon of prosperity’ ICONSIAM celebrated its first year anniversary last weekend from 8-10 November in the most glorious way.
Last year, when ICONSIAM opened its doors, we were taken aback with its seven wonders and iconic attractions that brought a new riverside experience to Bangkok. To commemorate its first year of success, ICONSIAM unveiled a grand opening of the TRUE ICON HALL last Friday — an addition to one of the seven wonders of ICONSIAM.
What went down at the party?
Was it the greatest celebration in town? It may as well have been. From celebrities attending ‘The Celebration of Glory’ event at the beginning, to world-class performances that lead long into the evening, ICONSIAM left no stone unturned to wow us.
Inside TRUE ICON HALL, the evening saw a beautiful roleplay of the Ramayana Khon performance on Kuan Sian Samut using state-of-the-art multimedia technology. The Thai cultural performance represented ICONSIAM’s glory and success and it’s mission to create new experiences.
The celebration continued with the talented and famed Italian singer Matteo Bocelli — yes, the son of Andrea Bocelli — bringing to the stage his soulful music and charms. On the second day, we saw the TRINITY Mini-Concert with James Teradon, Third Lapat, Porsche Siwakorn, and Jackie Jackrin, taking us long into the night. Afterwards, Atom Chonakan entertained with another special concert on the last day.
What is the newTRUE ICON HALL?
The TRUE ICON HALL, a collaboration between ICONSIAM and True corporation, is a world-class conference centre in Thailand and a true convergence of innovative design and cutting-edge technology. The 12,000 sqm conference hall accommodates 2,700 seats and is suitable for meetings, international conferences, entertainment, exhibitions, and events. For the first time in Thailand, the hall features a retractable seating system and automatic braking system.
The Director of ICONSIAM Co., Ltd., Mrs. Chadatip Chutrakul, tells us how ICONSIAM has managed to reach new heights in such a short spam of time.“ICONSIAM has embarked on a journey for one full year and has become a game changer destination.
