A mega convention facility, conceptualized on the lines of Delhi’s Vigyan Bhavan, is going to come up in Knowledge Park II in Greater Noida soon. The construction is going to begin in May.
The centre, to cost Rs 1,500 crore, will sprawl across 31.25 acres and be the first fully integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment facility in the district.
HK Verma, Greater Noida Authority additional CEO, said so far there was no such facility in the district which can host national and international conferences and other events. The convention centre will house an auditorium, amphitheatres, seminar halls as well as a big library with around 50,000 books. A food plaza offering national and international cuisines will also be a part of the centre. “There will be about 200 outlets serving varied cuisines from across the globe,” Verma said. An art gallery, fitness centre and parking space for 7,000 vehicles will also come up on the premises. The entire facility will be connected with walkways and subways for easy movement.
