This much-loved Kyoto venue is almost doubling its floor space with the addition of a New Hall on the existing adjacent car park. The 2,000-sqm facility is on track to open this October, and this means that ICC Kyoto will now be able to host up to 4,000 people – a huge boost to the city’s capacity for large-scale events. Thankfully, there are supporting new hotel projects and renovations underway also.

The single-storey New Hall will include traditional Kyoto touches, particularly in the entrance and public spaces where gardens and natural light will be featured. The hall itself will offer a ceiling height of 10m, the ability to be divided into two rooms of 1,000 sqm, four loading entrances and a VIP room. Seating capacities are 820 for banquets and 1,612 theatre style.

It’s “Your Choice” catering service allows for organisers to work with four major Kyoto hotels – Kyoto Tokyu Hotel, Kyoto Hotel Okura, Hyatt Regency Kyoto, Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto – and ICC Kyoto’s own catering service.
