The Middle East’s largest convention center will open in Tel Aviv this week. It is lauded to be the largest, most advanced and cutting-edge facility in this region of the world. At more than 6470 square meters with seating for 10,000, the claim seems well-founded.

It is hoped to be a venue that will boost business by hosting events, exhibitions, trade fairs, conferences, and performances. $88 million was invested to create this state-of-the-art building which provides access to hi-tech infrastructure for its patrons.

Some of the modern marvels available are full telephone services, high performance IT infrastructure, broadband internet services, ISDN services and other information networks, video conferencing, point-to-point networking, and a wide range of audio-visual equipment. There are an additional nine halls for smaller, boutique events. There is also accessibility to the roof for event space covering an area of approximately 2,200 sq. meters and a magnificent view of downtown Tel Aviv. The center has two separate, full-size commercial kitchen centers available.

The Israel Trade Fairs Center in Tel Aviv is located in the most strategic point of the metropolitan area, enabling quick and easy access to any point on the map of Israel. Major traffic arteries (the Ayalon Freeway, Geha Highway, the Coastal Road, Road Five) run directly to it; the adjacent train station is located within walking distance from the complex, as well as an abundance of bus stops. There are hundreds of ground level and underground parking spaces available, while alongside the perimeter of the complex there are thousands of additional municipal parking spaces. The underground parking services cover an area of 6,920 sq. meters and contain 235 parking spaces.

In true Tel Aviv style the pavilion provides a smart, technologically advanced and versatile space with unlimited event possibilities. Events for 9,000 can be accommodated as well as performances with seating for 10,000 that enables high-quality vantage points from anywhere in the pavilion. The acoustic composition of the building allows four music performances to occur simultaneously, and all in perfect harmony.
