We thus partnered with industry leaders such as Microsoft, Intel, BaNANA Business, Syn HUB and many more in an exciting collaboration to meet this diversity of modern needs. Needs include e-sports, a trending new venue of entertainment that has become a part of many peoples' lives, for example. For entrepreneurs, the new Startup Business Zone was created to meet their R&D needs, and to develop their products, while the Co-Working Station connects people and ideas. The new Smart Solution Zone is a venue to discover new ways to interconnect devices with people to improve productivity and convenience for customers. What was originally the foremost area of PANTIP Pratunam, the Experience Zone was updated by leading brands to feature hot trends in both hardware and software in rotation. With informative displays to expand customer knowledge, understanding, metrics for success, and to enhance customer confidence in their products, we ensure that customers choose products that are 'the right solution.' The Handy Man Zone is another new area created for the service and repair of technology, with repair technicians that have the wide expertise expected by our customers. With the re-launch of PANTIP Pratunam in the 3rd quarter of this year, we will be a trending place where technology enthusiasts meet through events, be it online or offline games, and through Men's World (Men's Hobby). The usual sights of the popular history, PANTIP, in Zone Retro Town, Techno Concierge is a dramatic improvement for PANTIP. Data center services by GURU will also meet and exceed customer expectations at all times. I would like to invite you to experience the new PANTIP Pratunam soon."
