In order to capitalise on the vast MICE market potential and to drive India’s industry, associate with programmes such as Make in India, promote tourism, trade and commerce activities, the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) has proposed the need for a large scale Exhibition cum Convention Centre in Dwarka, New Delhi.
It is conceived as a smart, zero energy state-of-the-art, world class Exhibition and Convention Centre in India, whose facilities offer a luxurious setting for international and national meetings, conferences, exhibitions and trade shows. Envisaged at the scale of a Central Business District (CBD), the design of this massive project pays close attention to creating close connections with its natural surroundings, Indian culture and tradition while aiming to embody the ambitions of a forward looking nation through a contemporary interpretation of Indian planning principles and architecture. Multiple accesses to this complex create a porosity and permeability to the urban context, thereby integrating it to its vicinity.
