The eagerly awaited G20 leader’s meetings in India will be hosted at the newly developed ITPO complex in New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan, with the inauguration scheduled for July 26.
Spanning a vast 123-acre campus, the Pragati Maidan Complex now stands as India’s largest MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) destination. The state-owned construction company NBCC (India) Ltd undertook the comprehensive redevelopment of the complex in 2017, transforming it into an impressive venue for hosting high-profile international gatherings.
At the heart of the complex lies the Integrated Exhibition-cum-Convention Centre (IECC), a marvel in terms of its scale and capacity. Ranking among the top 10 exhibition and convention complexes globally, it stands proudly alongside renowned counterparts like the Hannover Exhibition Centre in Germany and the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai.
The IECC is a testament to India’s capabilities in hosting world-class events and highlights the country’s progress on the international stage. With a seating capacity of 7,000 on level 3, it surpasses even the iconic Sydney Opera House in Australia. This extensive capacity makes it perfect for mega conferences, international summits, and grand cultural spectacles.
Seven state-of-the-art exhibition halls provide innovative spaces for companies and exhibitors to showcase their products and ideas, fostering business growth and facilitating networking opportunities. The complex also boasts a breathtaking amphitheatre with a capacity of 3,000 people, setting the stage for captivating performances and cultural shows.
Visitors’ convenience is a priority at the IECC, with over 5,500 parking spaces available for vehicles and signal-free roads leading to the venue for seamless accessibility. With its world-class facilities and stunning infrastructure, the IECC is poised to host a successful and impactful G20 meeting, demonstrating India’s commitment to international cooperation and dialogue.
