The India International Convention & Exhibition Centre (IICC) planned to be developed at Sector 25, Dwarka, New Delhi is envisioned as a world-class, transit-oriented, mixed use district, providing one of the largest facilities of its kind in India and Asia. IICC is foreseen as an internationally recognized architectural icon with innovative design and novel green building features. The IICC will be an integrated complex with a host of mutually beneficial facilities – exhibition halls, convention centre, arena, open exhibition spaces, banquet halls, auditoria, star hotels, food and beverage outlets, offices and retail services.

The IICC district is proposed to include approximately 300,000 sq. m. of covered exhibition space (240,000 sq. m. of indoor exhibition space, 60,000 sq. m. of foyer space) and 60,000 sq. m. of convention space, as well as 50,000 sq. m. of outdoor exhibition space. In addition, it is planned to contain a sports arena of approximately 50,000 sq. m., approximately 260,000 sq. m. of hotel space, and approximately 380,000 sq. m. of commercial space for retail, entertainment and class-A offices. Approximately 28,000 basement-level car-parking spaces are also proposed. The size and diversity of the IICC suggests that each area will have unique features that define both the challenges and the opportunity to stimulate investment and generate a desirable level of success.

The project will be implemented in phases through a special purpose vehicle. In the first phase, India International Convention & Expo Centre will be developed. The convention centre will be of approximately 60,000 sq. m. There will also be a closed exhibition area of approximately 60,000 sq. m. comprising 2 (two) exhibition halls and approximately 20,000 sq. m. of adjoining foyer.
