The convention centre is going to be built in Dwarka’s Sector 25 at a cost of Rs 25,703 crores. It is going to accommodate a capacity of 10,000 guests with two exhibition halls spread over 80,000sqm and an entrance hall. It is going to be similar to the ones in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore for hosting exhibitions, trade fairs and summits of international standards. It is conceived as a smart, zero energy, world-class facility designed for events like G-20 summit and also the largest one in the Asia.
The contract for the first phase was awarded to Larsen & Toubro (L&T) by Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) — a knowledge partner for the project — in December last year. DMICDC appointed CP Kukreja Architects as its engineering and architectural consultant. The second phase, comprising the remaining exhibition area will be ready by 2025 and facilities such as hotels, retail space and offices will be completed on a public-private partnership (PPP) mode. The project was first mooted in 2010 but was stuck due to delay in transfer of land from DDA. The project is estimated to generate over five lakh employment opportunities.
