The Baku Convention Centre is a multifunctional building with clearly structured but flexible rooms and spacious public areas covered by a shared, elegantly curved shell. The heart of Baku Congress Center is the auditorium for 3,500 visitors that is flanked by 15 conference rooms and spacious networking areas.
The construction of the Baku Conference Center commenced early 2014 with the target completion in time for the Annual Asian Development Bank (ADB) Meeting which was held within the complex in May 2015. METSL CEO Michael Hammond was employed by Obermeyer Project Management GmbH to manage and coordinate the Mechanical, Electrical Public Health and Fire Life Safety designs, execution and Testing, Balancing and Commissioning works.
Gala Venue System (GVS) sign a major Contract with ILK Construction to supply a GVS for the 3,500-seats at the Baku Convention Centre.
The planned design and Gala Venue System for 2,100 seats will make it possible for events such as: conferences, banquets, concerts, trade shows, corporate presentations and performances of very different type to take place in this venue within a 15-minutes change-over period. The auditorium can be used for electro acoustical performances and presentations. Nevertheless, the building has not been designed for classical Opera and not for classical theater.
The auditorium can be used for many purposes, thanks to its flexible seating and rolling floor systems: for conferences or symposiums, trade shows and exhibitions, as a theater, for banquets, or divided by curtains and mobile partitions for several simultaneous events.

The office wing and the media center on the upper floor can be accessed through the main foyer and separate entrances.Areas for building services, deliveries and a kitchen that can serve 1500 guests are on the ground floor below the conference level.
Several ramps and elevators give visitors barrier-free access to the foyer, auditorium, conference rooms and office spaces.
