Additional Information

ICCVE 2012 will be held at China National Convention Center (CNCC), the premier conference venue in China. Capturing the heart precinct of Beijing Olympic Green, CNCC is right next to the Bird Nest (China National Stadium for the Olympics opening and closing ceremony), the Water Cube (National Aquatics Center) and National Indoor Stadium. CNCC complex consists of the Convention Center, InterContinental Hotel, CNCC Grand Hotel, and two office buildings. The Center itself is 398m long, 148m wide, 42m high and it has eight floors and two more in the basement with a shopping mall inside. During the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the exhibition space on CNCC's first floor was the site for the International Broadcasting Center (IBC) and the Main Press Center (MPC). After the Olympic Games, CNCC took some renovations and opened officially in Nov 2009. Now CNCC is China's most versatile international conference venue, with the world-class services and unparalleled facilities provided. CNCC's center-piece is its over 70 meeting rooms of various sizes equipped with the most advanced AV facilities. The 6,400 sqm plenary hall is able to cater to 6,000 delegates, and the 4,860 sqm ballroom is suitable for 3,000 pax banquets. Sitting in the center of the Olympic commercial circle between Beijing's fourth and fifth ring roads, CNCC boasts an enviable location. It's only 30 minutes drive to the airport and the subway station is connected with CNCC's basement which enables people to quickly go to the city center, the airport, the Beijing Railway station, the central business district, China's silicon valley Zhongguancun, and many tourist attractions such as Tian'anmen Square, Forbidden City or Summer Palace. It takes only one hour from CNCC to the renowned Great Wall and Ming Tombs.
