BusinessPM to dedicate ‘YashoBhoomi’ to the nation on 17 September


The Prime Minister will inaugurate the first phase of the India International Convention and Expo Centre (IICC) — dubbed ‘YashoBhoomi’ — in Dwarka this Sunday. This marks a pivotal step toward realising a vision for a globally competitive meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) infrastructure in India.

Spanning an expansive project area of over 8.9 lakh square metres and boasting a built-up space exceeding 1.8 lakh square metres, YashoBhoomi is set to rank among the largest MICE facilities worldwide. The state-of-the-art convention centre encompasses 15 purpose-built rooms including a grand ballroom and a main auditorium, with a combined seating capacity for 11,000 attendees, fortified by the nation’s largest LED media facade.

The centrepiece, a plenary hall with room for 6,000 guests, features an advanced automated seating system capable of multiple configurations, ensuring versatility for a wide array of events. Visitors can anticipate a superior experience, courtesy of the auditorium’s acoustic wall panels and wooden flooring.
Adjacent to the main hall, the grand ballroom presents a distinctive petal ceiling, ready to accommodate 2,500 guests, with additional open space for 500 attendees. Thirteen adaptable meeting rooms sprawl over eight floors, envisaged to cater to diverse meetings of varying scales.

The venue also hosts one of the world’s most spacious exhibition halls, sprawling over 1.07 lakh square metres. These halls, poised to host grand exhibitions and business events, are tethered to a grand foyer adorned with a copper ceiling and infused with natural light filtering through innovative skylights. This foyer will encompass support areas including VVIP lounges and a visitor information centre, incorporating elements inspired by Indian culture and demonstrating a commitment to sustainability with features such as a wastewater reuse system and rooftop solar panels, acknowledged with a Green Cities Platinum certification from the CII’s Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).

Furthermore, YashoBhoomi will benefit from enhanced connectivity, thanks to its direct link to the Delhi Airport Metro Express Line via the soon-to-be-unveiled Dwarka Sector 25 station. The operational speed on the Airport Express Line will be ramped up, reducing the travel time from New Delhi to the Dwarka Sector 25 station to a mere 21 minutes.

The inauguration stands as a testimony to India’s ambition to foster a world-class facility for exhibitions and conferences, augmenting the nation’s position on the global MICE stage.
