Here’s what happened to the fifth floor of Emporium after TCDC moved to Charoenkrung.

It’s still keeping the ties with TCDC, but now in league with mobile operator AIS, who together have launched the AIS D.C. Creative Space.

There’s a zone for co-working, an exhibition space and a photo studio, as well as something they’re calling the “Playground,” where start-up businesses can go for support.

If those floor-to-ceiling book shelves and mid-century-referencing chairs look familiar, it’s because they’re still the work of starchitect Duangrit Bunnag.

The best bit of all has to be the membership cost of B1,200 for a year—and even that’s not till the grand opening (date TBA), until when it’s free.

Here’s where you should organize your next sustainable conference around Thailand

The globally recognized ISO 20121 certification, otherwise known as Event Sustainability Management Systems, encourages organizations in the events industry to make its products, events and services more sustainable. Thailand is the second country in the world to implement the certification after the United Kingdom, with five venues that have met the required standards since 2012. Under the ISO’s goals, venues are encouraged to combine profit, people and the planet in a way that is truly sustainable. Here's why you should pick these five ISO 20121-certified venues for your next conference.
