Kigali Convention Centre

The iconic building is the premium events venue in Rwanda since its opening in 2016 and a popular MICE (Meetings Incentives, Conferences and Events) destination in Africa. Located in the heart of the city, the Kigali Convention Center is the most expensive building in Africa. Using state-of-the-art technology, the building was constructed at a cost of $300 million.

With a net floor area of 32,200 square metres, the Convention Centre can host more than 5,000 delegates at a time and contains facilities for business, leisure and events. Inspired by a king’s palace and traditional Rwanda homes, the building also hosts a 5-star hotel, Radisson Blu Hotel Kigali (which received a continental award in Best Architectural Design recently) with 292 rooms on six floors.
