A multi-purpose convention centre to accommodate up to 2,600 delegates is set to open in Guangzhou in 2020. The Guangzhou International Convention Centre will be located in the Canton Fair district and will have two exhibition halls of 2,500 sqm, a 505-seat amphitheatre and 47 break-out modular meeting rooms with a capacity ranging from 50 to 800.

The venue will be jointly operated by global events company GL Events and Yuexiu Group, a public real estate company in China. Both companies will join heads to bring in world-class events to the business hub.

Guangzhou is home to large, international-standard venues including Canton Fair Complex, slated to be one of the biggest convention centres in the world with a gross hall capacity of 338,000 sqm.

Meanwhile, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is the third busiest in China and handles up to 65 million passengers last year. To accommodate the volume of arrivals, a new terminal began operating in April and is expected to welcome up to 100 million arrivals by 2025.
