Chennai Trade Center was set up in 2001 by the India Trade Promotion Organisation (Government of India) and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (Government of Tamil Nadu) as a joint venture. Spread over 25.48 acres, the Centre has three large Exhibition Halls and a Convention Centre.
The three Exhibition Halls extend over 10,560 square metres of air conditioned space, without any intermittent pillars or columns. They can be utilized for exhibitions, conferences, conventions, product launches and for conducting trade, commerce and other industry-related events. Halls 1 and 2 are inter-lined by a large lobby, which has a passage with two rooms for the organizer. Hall 3 is connected with a vestibule that leads to the Convention Centre’s banquet hall. All the Exhibition halls and Convention Centre are interconnected.
Chennai Convention Centre’s facilities are of international standards and include a range of halls from 250 sq. ft. to 20,000 sq. ft. accommodating from 25 to 2000 delegates. The Convention Centre has two halls –A and B– with a total seating capacity of 2000 delegates. It has a grand lobby area at the entrance, enhancing an equally large patio, landscaped with lush lawns and gushing fountains.
