Thailand selected to host IDF World Diabetes Congress 2025


Bangkok is chosen to host "IDF World Diabetes Congress 2025", one of the world's largest conferences on diabetes for the first time in the Southeast Asia region, reinforcing Thailand’s strategy towards becoming a global medical hub.

The Congress in 2025 is forecast to attract 10,000 participants from around the world, generating over 420 million baht in revenue for the country.

Mr. Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, president of Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), revealed that TCEB, in collaboration with the Diabetes Association of Thailand under the royal patronage of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, has submitted a bid for the right to host the IDF World Diabetes Congress, one of the world’s largest international conferences on diabetes, to be held in Thailand. Latest development unveils the country’s success when International Diabetes Federation (IDF) selects Bangkok as host city of the IDF World Diabetes Congress in 2025 (IDF 2025).

“This is a great opportunity for Thailand to host a world-class medical conference on diabetes. It also gives the Thai government and private sectors as well as stakeholders a platform to cooperate as host and support the organization of the IDF World Diabetes Congress 2025 (IDF 2025) which will take place between April 7-10, 2025, at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center (BITEC),” he said. 

Chiruit continued that the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions) industry around the world has been showing a noticeable sign of recovery, in line with TCEB's mission that aims to promote Thailand as the world’s destination for conventions and exhibitions by attracting world-class events to be held in Thailand. The successful bid to host the IDF 2025 is, therefore, considered an important achievement for Thailand. It is also aligned with the country’s 20-year strategy to promote Thailand as medical hub, one of the five industries of the future (New S-Curve) that has high potential to drive the economy for the future of Thailand. It is expected that IDF 2025 will attract 10,000 participants from all over the world, generating more than 420 million baht in revenue. 

The Congress is also forecast to help generate about 800 million baht in economic stimulus, contribute to gross domestic products (GDP) by approximately 440 million baht, creating employment for approximately 560 jobs, and generating about 27 million baht in tax revenue.
