About the Qatar National Convention Centre
This international convention center features both cutting-edge design and state-of-the-art facilities. It houses nine spacious halls with a total of 40,000 m2 of exhibition space, a 2,300-seat lyric-style theater, three additional tiered auditoriums, a conference hall for 4,000 delegates, banquet space for up to 10,000 in the exhibition halls, and 57 large and small meeting rooms. (Scheduled to officially open by December 2011.)
This facility was designed by renowned Japanese architect, Arata Isozaki. The spectacular façade features an iconic design portraying the Sidra tree, a beloved symbol of learning and rest in the desert. Traditionally, poets and scholars would gather in the cool shade beneath its branches to share knowledge.
