Sokha Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a major new conference and exhibition space – the Sokha Convention Center, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Located adjacent to the 770-key Sokha Siem Reap Resort, which is due to open in September 2016, the 8,950 square meter facility will be equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual and telecommunications technology. Currently, Sokha Hotels also manages other convention facilities in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Kampot, as well as in Siem Reap. While the majority of large-scale conferences in Cambodia are held in Phnom Penh, it is anticipated that the new Sokha Convention Center will boost the potential of Siem Reap as a promising new MICE destination in Asia. Furthermore, with a halal-certified kitchen, the convention center is expected to attract large-scale events from Muslim countries, especially from neighboring ASEAN nations such as Indonesia and Malaysia. Siem Reap is an important cultural destination for tourists from all across the world. It is a major tourist hub in Cambodia, being closest to the world famous temples of Angkor Wat.
