Modern conference facility opens in May

ARUSHA is in the final stages of establishing a large, state-of-the-art conference center with a sitting capacity of 4000.

It will be the largest in the country so far. Built within the Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge in Meru, the facility will be among the various properties operating under the Impala Group of Hotels (IGH).

''It will be the third largest conference facility in East Africa after the Nairobi's Kenya International Conference Centre with a capacity of 10,000 seats and UNEP with 5000,'' stated Mr Mosses Onunga the IGH's Group Operations Manager.

The Arusha International Conference Center's 'Simba Hall' podium with a seating capacity of 1200 had until now been the largest in the country.

The yet to be named, the oval-shaped convention centre is currently under construction. The centre once completed in May, this year will be given an official name in line with Tanzania's tourist attractions.

The 'Ngurdoto' Conference Centre also seems to pre-empty the AICC's ongoing plans to come up with another, even larger, state-of-the-art convention and exhibition centre in Olorien area of the municipality.

The AICC'’s brainchild, whose value stands at 122 billion/- has yet to beg capacity of 7500, which means it will be the largest in the country and second-largest in East Africa.

Both the KICC and Ngurdoto ICC are set to reclaim Arusha's crown as doyenne of congress tourism, a position which was slowly but surely being stolen by Dar-es-salaam, Zanzibar and Bagamoyo.

''Most conference organizers prefer out-of-town locations where their delegates can concentrate on issues, but they also want to get everything under one roof and we intend to live up to such demands with our conference facilities,'' explained Mr Onunga.

The 'Ngurdoto' Conference Centre whose construction works started three years ago under both Chinese and local firms will feature the trademark podium, an underground restaurant, basement recreation centre, business centre and show rooms.

''Our conference package will also include optional tourism package to visit the Arusha National Park located adjacent to the Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge or a cultural visit to the nearby traditional villages and farms.

The convention centre is set to complement the Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge, the legendary huge hotel comprising of 300 rooms (to be 400 by the end of this year) 16 presidential suites and a horizon-length lush landscape.

Kumbuka, uwekezaji huu ni kwamba, everything under one roof! No need to make to and fro daily movements!
Bado tatizo la upanuzi wa barabara unatahitajika. Watu elfu nne wakiwa sehemu moja kwa wakati mmoja lazima kutakuwa na msongamano wa magari.

Ndilo tatizo ambalo tunalipata pale Uwanja wa Taifa, watu elfu 50 wanatoka uwanjani kwa wakati mmoja, halafu barabara hazijapanuliwa!

Ngurdoto ni karibu na uwanja wa KIA, hivyo basi hata kama ni watu 4000, watafuatwa na mabasi makubwa na kurudishwa vivyo hivyo. Usiogope umande ukalima wakati mvua inanyesha!

Simaanishi kwamba uwekezaji huo sio mzuri lakini naamini kwa ushawishi waliona wawekezaji wazalendo kama kama hao wenye Ngurdoto kwenye serikali yetu, wanaweza kabisa ku-influence upanuzi na uboreshaji wa barabara ya kuingia Ngurdoto!

Mlimani City Conference Centre has a capacity of 3000, I guess the journalist is not up to date!

hata kama vyote viko pamoja, kumbuka wageni wanapokuja kwenye mikutano kunakuwa na program za kutembelea vivutio vilivyo karibu, wanatakiwa wafanye shopping, nk sio kwamba watu wanakuja kwenda kwenye mkutano na kurudi makwao, kuwa na conference centre kunaendasambamba na infrastructures nzuri kama barabara, viwanja vidogo vya ndege, hospitali nzuri na ulinzi wa uhakika,
