The convention center of João Pessoa was designed to be one of the most modern in the country, with all the necessary equipment to carry out major projects. Its structure consists of 4 main buildings: the Lookout Tower, the Congress and Convention Hall and the Pedra do Reino Theater.
Seeking to insert further the state of Paraiba in the context of the Business Tourism, the Convention Center of João Pessoa which has a total built area of 48,676 m2, is able to host business events such as exhibition fairs, symposia and conferences, as well as big shows such as plays and concerts.
Many global events have occurred here. In 2014, we hosted the RoboCup, one of the world's largest technology events. This year 'Expotec - Innovation to the Extreme’ brought together about three thousand professionals from the Free Software areas. The "Internet Governance Forum" UN is confirmed for November and will receive around 1,800 participants.
Our structure fits ECP (Environmental Control Plan). Skirting the entire area of the enterprise, there is an ecological corridor 100 meters wide, with all the existing vegetation preserved. In addition, João Pessoa is the easternmost point of the Americas and for this reason we have created in front of the gazebo a square with a sundial.
The whole structure of João Pessoa Convention Center is tailored to people with special needs. Locomotion was designed with special attention: access ramps and elevators meet the floors of all the buildings from the Convention Center. If necessary, wheelchairs will be available to visitors on site.
