The Accra International Conference Center is perhaps the most popular venue in Accra where large events are held.
It is located in the Christiansborg area in Accra and is close to a number of important locations, such as the Parliament of Ghana, the Accra Sports Stadium, the Independence Arch and the Black Star Square.
Situated in Ghana’s capital, with ready access to Kotoka Airport and first-class hotels, the multi-purpose conference centre has a 6,000-person capacity.
Of six conference halls, the main conference hall seats 1,600 people; there are also two committee halls accommodating 205 persons each and three meeting halls (each accommodating approximately 50 delegates).
In addition, a press centre keeps delegates in touch, both for transmission of conference news and reception of information; this plus audio facilities for simultaneous translation in five languages.
The Accra International Conference Centre was built in 1991 to host the Tenth Ministerial Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement. It has since hosted major conferences and summits by U.N. organisations, such as the World Health Organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organisation, as well as regional organisations such as ECOWAS.
