ACCOR has been appointed the operator for the new Jaipur Exhibition & Convention Centre (JECC).
Located in the industrial hub of Sitapura and 5km from Jaipur International Airport, the 17ha JECC along with the 241-room Novotel is the largest integrated exhibition-convention-entertainment facility in South Asia.
Facilities include two exhibition halls with a combined, column-free space of 20,000m2 and an open exhibition area of 10,000m2. The convention centre includes seating for 1,200 delegates, supported by 20 meeting rooms spanning 5,000m2 as well as pre-function areas, registration counters, interpretation booths, and a lawn for outdoor events.
Jean-Michel Cassé, senior vice president, Accor India, said in a statement: “In India, we have been the pioneer in the field of convention centres, through the Hyderabad International Convention Centre and the Lavasa International Convention Centre and Novotel Visakhapatnam Varun Beach.”
Already open, JECC hosted India Stone Mart 2015 in January. Novotel will begin operations in 2016.
