Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld, which was at the epicentre of the recent civil disturbances in Bangkok, will reopen for business on 1 June 2010.

Although the hotel and convention centre had remained open when the Red Shirt protestors made the Rajaprasong business and shopping district their main camp and used Central Square as their rallying stage, the facilities were closed when government armed forces moved in to clear the area of protestors.

During the final days of the subsequent rioting, the CentralWorld shopping complex was damaged by fire.

With calm now returning to Bangkok, deep cleaning is currently taking place at both Centara Grand and the Bangkok Convention Centre to ensure that both properties are completely ready for business by 1 June 2010.

Both the hotel and the convention centre were undamaged during the riots, and the subsequent fire at CentralWorld, said Suthikiati Chirathivat, Chairman of the Executive Board of Central Plaza Hotel (Public) Co.,Ltd. They do however have to undergo 100% deep cleaning ... Specialist contractors are working on the cleaning and servicing, and our staff are already on site to ensure that everything is working perfectly when our guests arrive.

Mr Suthikiati added that despite some news reports indicating CentralWorld had been destroyed, the fire damage had been confined to the Zen department store. CentralWorld is scheduled to reopen within three months.
