History of ICC

Istanbul Congress Center (ICC), was built by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality in 2009.The Congress Center is a seven floor facility with an area of 119,500 m2.

ICC was opened in October 2009 and assumed the title of “The biggest and the newest convention center of Europe”. ICC hosted its first big event organizing the World Bank Group and IMF Annual Meetings in 6-7 October 2009.

In March 2011, “Fine, Ekonopark, Maçka Ordinary Partnership” won the tender which was initiated by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and undertook the management of Istanbul Convention Center. CEO of “Fine, Ekonopark, Maçka Ordinary Partnership”, that also embodies 21 Rixos Hotels worldwide, 14 of which is located in Turkey, is Fatih Tamince.

With the international management experience of Rixos Hotels and service quality attitude, Istanbul Convention Center has hosted many cultural and artistic events in the last year.

ICC has a Vision

"Istanbul Convention Center, which is the biggest convention center in Turkey, will be hosting many nationally and internationally held events, without being contented with serving just domestically, in order to become the biggest convention center not only in quantity, but also in quality. In that way, ICC will not only contribute directly to introduction and economic life of Istanbul, but also will be a propellant power in the aim of Turkey to be the global leader in political, economic and cultural area.

ICC aims to move Turkey from 7th place to a place in the first 3, in terms of world convention center potential, with many different features embodied in itself." 

One of the most important parts of the main building is the auditorium with the capacity of 3500 guests.
