IMPACT Arena in Bangkok

Major Exhibition and Events Venue in Muang Thong Thani

    IMPACT Arena in the Muang Thong Thani district is one of the largest events venues in Bangkok. The multipurpose arena often serves as a convention center and exhibition hall for a wide range of events. It also regularly hosts huge live concerts, welcoming some of the world’s biggest artists to Bangkok.

    Located in the suburbs of Bangkok at Muang Thong Thani (Amphoe Pak Kret), IMPACT Arena is best reached by taxi if you’re coming from central Bangkok. The nearest BTS Skytrain Station is Mo Chit, which is around 20 minutes’ drive away, depending on traffic.

    IMPACT Arena highlights

    The vast floor space at IMPACT equals the size of 14 soccer fields – that’s 3 times as big as the BITEC arena in Bangna. It has various venues and facilities, including a main indoor arena (able to accommodate to 12,000 people), Aktiv Square (an outdoor amphitheater), Challenger Hall (among the world’s largest ‘column-less’ exhibition halls), and Novotel Bangkok IMPACT Hotel.

    The arena hosts a staggering 490 events a year across its venues, though the most popular ones are the big-name international concerts, which often sell out. Notable artists who have played here include Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Incubus, Lady Gaga, Eric Clapton, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, and The Script. IMPACT Arena has also previously hosted Miss Universe pageants as well as a long list of other world-famous events and exhibitions.

    Good to know about IMPACT Arena

    IMPACT Muang Thong Thani was originally built as part of the 13th Asian Games in 1999. It was then rebranded and extended over the course of the following decade, with several additional venues added to the complex.

    Each of the 5 venues can be rented privately and offers state-of-the-art technology for various types of events, together with arrangements for caterings, travel, onsite support, wedding planners, and accommodations.

    IMPACT Arena lies around 40 km north of Bangkok city center, which should take between 40 and 60 minutes depending on traffic. It's around 20 minutes away from the Mo Chit BTS Skytrain Station. Don Muang International Airport is also nearby, around 15 to 20 minutes’ ride by taxi.
