“BITEC has always followed the government policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19 strictly since the first wave in 2020.

BITEC also uses UVC Technology to kill viruses in all service areas and provides a video showing processes to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
With its strict measures, working systems, and positive outcomes throughout the past year, BITEC has created trust among exhibitors, organisers, and business operators. The trust led to important exhibitions, trade fairs, and conferences at both national and international levels to be hosted at BITEC in the first half of the year 2021. The confirmed upcoming events include SAHA Group Fair 2021, Asia Fashion (Thailand) Show H & B 2021, Architechnica Asia & Horti Asia 2021, MEGA Show Bangkok 2021, and Bangkok Beauty Show 2021.
