ICC Jerusalem is expected to undergo a large-scale expansion

  • Published by Vedat
ICC Jerusalem is about to go through a serious makeover and add thousands of square meters to its area.

A huge complex, with a congress hotel, trading center and local businesses will be built next to it, as part of Jerusalem Municipality's new Business Quarter plan.

ICC Jerusalem is Israel's largest convention center (member of the ICCA and the AIPC organizations). It is located at the entrance of Jerusalem, and hosts about 400-500 local and international events every year, with more than 400.000 participants and guests. The center is currently built over an area of 31,000 square meters, and includes 27 conference halls and exhibition areas, of different sizes.  

The new program includes the construction and extension of brand new and modern convention center, which will spread over 56,000 square feet. There, you will find a congress hotel with 800 guest rooms, 6,000 square meters of exhibition areas, ballrooms, study halls, auditorium, VIP chambers, cabinet chambers and a communication center.

This program fits into the general program of the city entrance, which is planned by the architect firm "Farhi – Zafrir". In addition to the renovated convention center, it also includes office towers and a commercial avenue. Thanks to its central location, this complex will benefit from transport accessibility, as being in close proximity to an Israel Railways station, two of the Jerusalem Light Rail stations and the city's central station.

ICC Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish Agency for Israel and to Jerusalem's municipality, which promote the program with the company's directorate. Another partner to the program's development and promotion is the Jerusalem Development Authority (JDA), which makes constant efforts to strengthen Jerusalem's status as an attractive destination for international conventions, fairs and exhibitions.
