International Convention Centre near Harbour Park

The proposed international convention centre by chief minister N Chandra babu Naidu is likely to be built near the harbour park in the city.

APIIC grounds near the Harbour Park has been selected for the construction of the center. APIIC floated a request for proposal (RFP) on February 22 inviting developers to submit their bids for construction of the international convention centre.

APIIC is in possession of 14 acres land close to Harbour Park overlooking the beach. Out of which 10 acres would be used for the construction. The project initiative is under finalization and the estimated cost of the project will be put out soon.

The construction of the convention centre would be taking place in such a way that it will have a capacity to host around 3,000-5,000 people at one go and may also have a five-star hotel as part of the project.

Vizag certainly has the potential to become a major attraction for holding international conventions as it has already hosted two events successfully and is one of the most beautiful cities in the country with sea on the one side and hills on the other.

Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu during his visit to the port city in October last year had mooted the idea of having a permanent convention centre to host mega events in the state and confirmed to it construction in the recent CII Partnership Summit.

Being in the heart of the city, the state government is hoping that developers would come forward to express their interest in construction of the international convention centre.
