International convention centre in Kerala

Reema Sisodia - Kochi

The country will get another international convention centre in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. This will be the second for South India, the first being the Hyderabad International Convention Centre.

The Raheja Group has won the bid which was put forth by Government of Kerala to commence work for the convention centre. The two will have a Special Purpose Wheel (SPW), which is a legal entity between them with the state government holding a 26 per cent stake and the rest will lie with the Raheja Group. The convention centre, to be built in the technopark compound in Thiruvananthapuram, is being built with an investment of Rs 100 to Rs 140 crore. It will be promoted as Chalet Hotels and is proposed to be completed in the next two years.

Speaking on this development exclusively to Express Hospitality, E K Bharat Bhushan, principal secretary of Kerala Tourism, said, "We will finally have a world-class convention centre in the state, giving a further fillip to tourism in the state as MICE would be yet another segment to explore. We are in the process of sending the letter of intent to the party and are glad to partner with the Raheja group for this project.
