Valencia Conference Centre: fourteen years leading sustainability

World?s Best Convention Centre, an economic impact of over ?750 million for the city since it was opened and a photovoltaic roof which has already generated over 1,200,000 kWh confirms that the Conference Centre has been a key factor in the city?s leading position.

Fourteen years ago, Norman Foster?s design for the Valencia Conference Centre became a reality. In addition to creating a flagship of avant-garde architecture, the building?s construction became the turning point for the city?s economic and urban development as the driving force behind the growth of the area it is located in and a highly attractive venue for event tourism in Valencia.

The figures speak for themselves. According to the latest data from the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), Valencia stands eighth on the European ranking of non-capital cities as an event destination. The Centre?s contribution to this position is evident. The venue has played host to around 2,200 events and over 1.5 million visitors since it was opened and has generated an economic impact for the city of over ?750 million.
