October 2018 saw the opening of Kyoto’s latest world-class convention and exhibition venue – the ‘New Hall’ at the Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC Kyoto). The ‘New Hall’ is the third independent building within the ICC Kyoto complex and boasts a multi-purpose usage area of 2,000 sq m that can hold up to 2,500 attendees. The adjacent Event Hall (3,000 sq m) may be used simultaneously, allowing large-scale events for more than 4,000 attendees.
The ‘New Hall’ was created to incorporate the latest technology with a simple, yet very Kyoto-style design and aesthetic that includes the usage of wood materials, rice-paper wall features, locally produced Kyo-yaki ceramic tiles, traditional Nishijin Kyoto woven silk fabric brocade and traditional lacquered features. The venue employs the latest green and sustainable technology in both its construction and ongoing management, and features a highly sophisticated fibre optic digital network system that connects throughout the entire ICC Kyoto Complex.
Just 15 minutes from the city centre, ICC Kyoto is a large exhibition complex of 156,000 sq m that contains a main hall, event hall, annex hall, Japanese garden, and now a ‘New Hall’, as well as an adjacent hotel located along Lake Takaragaike. Since its opening in 1966, ICC Kyoto has welcomed more than 12 million guests from all over the world and is a regular venue for major international conventions, conferences, exhibitions and events.
