Guangzhou International Convention Center opening in 2020

New venue in southern China will be able to host 2,600 people for congresses and conventions.

The Guangzhou International Convention Center is set to open in 2020, in the historical Canton Fair district.

It will have two 2,500sqm exhibition halls, a 505-seat amphitheatre and 47 break-out meeting rooms. It is easily accessible from the airport, and next to the subway and motorway.

GL events and Yuexiu Group, a public real estate company of China, have signed a joint venture agreement to operate the venue together.

The opening of the convention centre is part of plans to bring world class events to the business hub of Guangzhou.

The region is also home to world famous Cantonese cuisine with its long-standing gastronomic tradition.
