Sponsors promise “spectacular light and sound technology” on a stage, all inspired by a space concept designed to make a memorable countdown event.
Over 140 artists will entertain the crowds, according to a press release on Friday.
As well, AIS Bangkok Countdown 2018 @CentralWorld will be live broadcast on 3SD channel from 10.30pm and 3HD from 11.30pm.
The main Bangkok CentralWorld event will feature an 80-metre stage.
“The countdown events holding in other Central branches will also aim to be the countdown landmark of each city to support Thai and foreign tourists who are travelling in Thailand during the festive season,” said Nattakit Tangpoonsinthana, executive vice president of marketing for Central Pattana Plc, the company behind Central plazas.
“We found that a huge number of people prefer to travel outside of the big city during this period, in particular people who live in Bangkok and foreign tourists.”
The 12 shopping centres holding The New Year Countdown events are: Central World, Central Plaza West Gate, Central Plaza Salaya, Central Festival Chiangmai, Central Plaza Udon Thani, Central Plaza Ubon Ratchathani, Central Plaza Nakhon Si Thammarat, Centra lFestival Hatyai, Central Festival Samui, Central Festival Pattaya Beach, Central Plaza Mahachai and Central Plaza Nakhon Ratchasima.
