Closing Dinner Event

The Grand Postal Building was established in 1935, the era of King Ananda Mahidol, and was once the centre of the post and telecommunication services.  The T-shaped building was designed according to old European architectural styles by Thai architect Jit Sen (Mew) Aphaiwong, who has also designed the Dome Thammasat University and Supachalasai Stadium.  The closing dinner in this exceptional historic venue will definitely be a memorable evening and will treat participants to a spectacular closure of this year’s FIP Congress!
