It’s a thrill indeed, as two premium arenas in Bangkok – EM LIVE and The Bangkok Arena – are set to debut, serving as mega stadiums for entertainment, sports and events that can host anywhere from 6,000 to 16,000 people. Both are expected to open in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

Behind the projects is The Mall Group, one of Thailand’s leading mall operators, already known for retail and lifestyle complexes like The Mall, Siam Paragon, The Emporium and The EmQuartier. They recently announced their partnership with the globally-known sports and live entertainment group, AEG. This is the first major investment in Southeast Asia, and hosting of large-scale business, retail and entertainment events, including the category of MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) and new lifestyle experiences. The two new entertainment districts position the city as a premier retail and entertainment destination in Southeast Asia. EM LIVE will be located at EmSphere, a luxury & lifestyle retail and entertainment district in the heart of the trendy Sukhumvit area while The Bangkok Arena marks its presence at Bangkok Mall, Bangna.
