Don't let anything spoil your trip to Money’s #1 Show!

/Getting Help

Head to any of the information desks around the show for general directions, advice, or if you need specific assistance.

/Support for people who are unwell

If someone looks unwell or seems in need of assistance and you are concerned for their safety, explain your concern to a member of staff and ask that they help the person to get home safely.

  • Inside the show - we have medics and security staff on site to assist
  • Inside a hotel, bar, restaurant - speak to a member of staff
  • In a public place - call the police: 191 / 1155

If someone is extremely unwell, including if they’re incapable of walking or standing, call an ambulance immediately on 1554.

/Water and sun cream

These are your two essentials. It is hot in Bangkok so keep hydrated and top-up your sun cream regularly when outside. There are water coolers throughout the venue. Unless marked otherwise, Bangkok tap water is NOT safe to drink, so carry a bottle with you and fill up as you go.

/Medical assistance

There are medics and trained first-aiders on hand at the show and at our official events. Remember to carry your medical insurance details if you’re an international visitor. Bangkok has well-stocked pharmacies and several hospitals, all with high standards.

/Road safety

Please take care when crossing roads. Remember to look both ways and use the pedestrian crossing; traffic drives on the left and can be travelling faster than you think. Watch out for motorcycles!

/Travelling around Bangkok

Traffic is very busy in Bangkok and it takes a long time to travel even short distances. Here are some top tips for getting around safely:

  • Airport transfers - book a car service in advance via your hotel.
  • Walking - it will be very hot in April so even short distances can be uncomfortable.
  • Local taxis - avoid using street taxis. If you don’t speak Thai, we’d recommend that you download a taxi app such as Grab - it will be much easier to plan your route and track your expenses!
  • Public transport - the most popular with international visitors are Bangkok’s Metro lines, which are called the BTS (also referred to as the “SkyTrain”), and the MRT. Trains have air conditioning and the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center has its own station on the MRT blue line. A map of Bangkok's metro lines is here.

/Staying together

As you would in any major city, please take precautions to stay safe and protect your possessions at all times. If you’re planning to attend one of our evening events, please make sure you’ve planned your journey home. Don’t travel alone where possible. Book a taxi, walk with co-workers or trusted friends, especially late at night.


Leave your passport and any valuables in your room, and use a safe if there is one. Remember to close all windows before you go out. While out and about, stay vigilant, keep off your phone, keep bags fastened and don’t carry them facing to the roadside.

/Venue Security

Be aware that we’ll be checking bags at the entrances, and large suitcases/luggage will not be permitted inside the venue. If you have any concerns during your time at Money20/20, please just ask any member of Money20/20 staff or alert a venue security officer.
