Prime Minister Narendra Modi has officially inaugurated the India Trade Promotion Organization (ITPO) Complex at Pragati Maidan in Delhi, fulfilling his vision of world-class infrastructure for hosting international meetings, conferences, and exhibitions in the country. The complex, constructed at a cost of approximately Rs 2,700 crore, spans 123 acres, making it the largest meeting, convention, and exhibition center in India.
Largest Meeting, Convention, and Exhibition Center
The inauguration took place on Wednesday evening, preceded by PM Modi’s morning visit to the ITPO campus, where he offered prayers with Vedic chants. During the visit, laborers involved in constructing the IECC complex were honored with shawls. The ITPO Complex includes top-notch facilities, such as a convention center, exhibition halls, and an amphitheater. The convention center, serving as the focal point of Pragati Maidan, boasts a combined capacity of 7,000, surpassing the renowned Sydney Opera House in Australia.
PM Modi’s Vision of World-Class Infrastructure
In January 2017, the government approved ITPO’s proposal for the redevelopment of Pragati Maidan, leading to the creation of a world-class Integrated Exhibition-cum-Convention Centre (IECC) in Delhi. With its extensive space and advanced amenities, the 123-acre MICE destination is poised to become one of the largest in the country, catering to the growing demand for Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions in India.
