Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate Phase 1 of the India International Convention and Expo Centre (IICC), named ‘Yashobhoomi,’ in Dwarka, New Delhi, on September 17, 2023, at 11 AM. During this event, the Prime Minister will also launch the extension of the Delhi Airport Metro Express line, connecting Dwarka Sector 21 to a newly established metro station called ‘Yashobhoomi Dwarka Sector 25.’

This development aligns with the Prime Minister’s vision to establish world-class infrastructure for hosting meetings, conferences, and exhibitions within the country, thus bolstering India’s position as a global hub for such events.

‘Yashobhoomi’ encompasses an expansive project area of over 8.9 lakh square meters, with a built-up area exceeding 1.8 lakh square meters, ranking it among the world’s largest MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) facilities.

The project, which comes at an estimated cost of approximately Rs. 5,400 crore, boasts an impressive Convention Centre with numerous exhibition halls and accompanying facilities.

The Convention Center, spanning over 73 thousand square meters, comprises 15 convention rooms, including the Main Auditorium, the Grand Ballroom, and 13 meeting rooms, with a collective capacity to accommodate 11,000 delegates. Notably, the Convention Center features the largest LED media facade in the country. The plenary hall within the Convention Center can seat around 6,000 guests and offers an innovative automated seating system that can convert the floor into a flat surface or an auditorium-style tiered seating, adapting to different seating configurations.

The auditorium’s wooden floors and acoustic wall panels promise a world-class experience for visitors. The Grand Ballroom, with its unique petal ceiling design, can host approximately 2,500 guests, with an extended open area accommodating up to 500 people. The 13 meeting rooms, spread across eight floors, are designed to accommodate meetings of varying scales.

‘Yashobhoomi’ also features one of the world’s largest Exhibition Halls, spanning over 1.07 lakh square meters. These halls will be used for hosting exhibitions, trade fairs, and business events, and are connected to a grand foyer space with a distinctive copper ceiling that filters natural light through various skylights. The foyer will house support areas such as media rooms, VVIP lounges, cloak facilities, a visitor information center, and ticketing services, among others.

Every public circulation area within ‘Yashobhoomi’ has been meticulously designed to maintain a sense of continuity with the outdoor spaces. Materials and objects inspired by Indian culture, such as terrazzo floors with brass inlay reflecting rangoli patterns, suspended sound-absorbent metal cylinders, and illuminated patterned walls, have been incorporated into the design.

Furthermore, ‘Yashobhoomi’ demonstrates a strong commitment to sustainability, featuring a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment system with 100% wastewater reuse, provisions for rainwater harvesting, and receiving Platinum certification from CII’s Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) for its eco-friendly campus.

In terms of security, ‘Yashobhoomi’ is equipped with advanced measures to ensure the safety of visitors. The underground parking facility accommodates over 3,000 cars and boasts more than 100 electric charging points.

Additionally, the new metro station ‘Yashobhoomi Dwarka Sector 25’ will connect ‘Yashobhoomi’ to the Delhi Airport Metro Express line. This station will feature three subways, including one connecting the station to the Exhibition halls, convention center, and Central Arena; another linking the entry/exit points across Dwarka Expressway; and a third connecting the metro station to the foyer of the future Exhibition halls of ‘Yashobhoomi.’

Delhi Metro will also enhance the operational speed of Metro trains on the Airport Express Line from 90 to 120 km/hr, reducing travel time significantly. The entire journey from ‘New Delhi’ to ‘Yashobhoomi Dwarka Sector 25’ is expected to take just 21 min
