Route 1: at the arrival terminal there is a free airport shuttle bus number A1 that will take you to Mo Chit (the largest bus terminal in Bangkok). As you arrive at Mo Chit, which is near a sky train (BTS http://www.bts.co.th/customer/en/02-route-current_new.aspx) station, you can take the sky train to arrive at Saladaeng station (you will need to switch to Silom route at Siam station). Departing the station, it will take you couples of minutes to arrive at the convention venue by walking.

Alternatively, you can get a taxi from the airport to arrive at Mo Chit.
