Covering an area of 12,000 square metres and being connected with the Furama Da Nang International Convention Palace, the Ariyana International Convention Center has become the largest convention and workshop complex in Vietnam, accommodating up to 5,000 seats and 15 functional rooms, with the grand ballroom alone offering 2,500 seats.

Possessing unique and harmonious architectural works, the Ariyana International Convention Center now stands ready for the largest international-level events.

The Ariyana and Furama Da Nang International Convention Centers complex will be the hosting venues for most of the events within the framework of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting 2017, including the APEC CEO Summit 2017.

The APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting, which is the most important event of the Vietnam APEC Year 2017, is expected to welcome the leaders of 21 APEC member economies, together with around 10,000 domestic and international delegates, including leaders of leading regional and international groups and representatives from prestigious international organizations.
