the convention hall
The main convention hall is a meeting planners' dream. An 8 metre high ceiling makes rear projection so easy. For gala dinner and exhibition set ups, the catwalk in the ceiling makes hanging those sponsors' banners a breeze!

In terms of capacity, the convention hall can seat 2200 delegates theatre style and 1100 for a gala dinner. The venue caters for up to 142 exhibition booths, with the convenience of power supply around the perimeter of the room as well as in the floor.

Supplemented by a spacious prefunction area suitable for morning and afternoon coffee breaks, working lunches, delegate registration and additional exhibition space, the convention hall enjoys a chameleon existence. One day an exhibition hall, the next a major meeting room, the next a five star restaurant.... it is a versatile venue managed by a team of professionals.
