The Accra International Conference Center is perhaps the most popular venue in Accra where large events are held.
Other venues include the Ghana Trade Fair and the National Theatre, but the Conference Center is more popular due to it being significantly larger than the National Theatre, and at the same time smaller than the Ghana Trade Fair Centre (which was built to host pan-African events).
It is located in the Christiansborg area in Accra and is close to a number of important locations, such as the Parliament of Ghana, the Accra Sports Stadium, the Independence Arch and the Black Star Square.
That international business can only be attracted with the right infrastructure in place, has long been acknowledged by the Government of Ghana. Hence the importance of the Accra International Conference Centre.
Situated in Ghanaâ€™s capital, with ready access to Kotoka Airport and first-class hotels, the multi-purpose conference centre has a 6,000-person capacity.
Of six conference halls, the main seats 1,600 people; there are also two committee halls accommodating 205 persons each and three meeting halls (each accommodating approximately 50 delegates).
In addition, a press centre keeps delegates in touch, both for transmission of conference news and reception of information; this plus audio facilities for simultaneous translation in five languages.
The Accra International Conference Centre was built in 1991 to host the Tenth Ministerial Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement. It has since hosted major conferences and summits by U.N. organisations, such as the World Health Organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organisation, as well as regional organisations such as ECOWAS.
For large-scale conferences, seminars, business meetings and prestigious social events, there is no finer venue â€“ the Accra International Conference Centre is a centre of attention for everyone doing business in West Africa.
