India International Convention & Expo Centre (IICC)
India International Convention & Expo Centre (IICC) is a flagship project of Government of India with a vision to create a state-of-the-art, world class Exhibition and Convention Facility which will be on par with the best in the industry worldwide, in size and quality; offering an efficient and quality setting for international as well as national meetings, conferences, exhibitions and trade shows.
At an estimated cost of INR 25703 crore, the project is being developed in Sector-25, Dwarka and is envisioned to be on a scale of a Central Business District (CBD) with about 3,03,000 Sq.m. of Exhibition space, 60,000 Sq.m. of convention area, 50,000 sq.m of Multipurpose Arena along with a supporting development of retail, commercial & office spaces, hospitality, and entertainment and lifestyle opportunities for end-users. The facility will be first of its kind in the country with Exhibition Halls having large column free spaces and ability to host large scale defence and aerospace exhibits. The Convention Centre complex will have an ability to hold 10000 delegates with a world class plenary hall of capacity to hold 6000 pax. Further, a Multipurpose Arena, with flexible space and retractable roofing system to hold sports events, trade & fashion shows, and national events, will have a capacity of 20000 pax.
The global Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) market is a significant economic driver for a large number of nations. Currently India captures only a small percent of the share of Asia in terms of number of events. In the absence of world class exhibition and conference facilities, India has not benefited from the potential benefits of this development. The development of the IICC is expected to help increase this share and will enable New Delhi to compare favourably with Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore in the sphere of MICE Sector. Further, the proposed Exhibition Centre, Convention Centre and Multi Performance Arena developments are estimated to generate over five lakh direct and indirect employment opportunities.
