Indore is getting world class events, the city has also hosted G-20 meeting, NRI meet.
For big events like Pravasi Bharatiya Sammelan, Global Summit, a convention center with a seating capacity of 10,000 will come up on 10 hectare land near the Super Corridor intersection on Depalpur Road. Officers and public representatives finalized the land here. There are three big reasons behind finalizing this location in plan number 172. First, the airport is just half way from here It is at a distance of km. Second, metro train will come here in future and third, the traffic load is less. Our convention center will also be made world class. Planning will be done here to make the luxury centers even better than those built in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Presently such events are organized only at the Brilliant Convention Centre. The capacity here is two and a half to three thousand people. To organize a mega event, the Chief Minister opened a stadium with a capacity of 10,000.
There was talk of building a centre. Under this, IDA has prepared the project. However, such a center should have been built in the city 15 years ago. In 2008, IDA got 25 acres of land of Malwa Mill. The government had also issued a notification. IDA should have taken possession and started the work, but after getting the land and later changing the board, this project itself got shelved.
A center with a capacity of 1200 has been built in Rajendra Nagar.
IDA has built a convention center with a capacity of one thousand in Rajendra Nagar. This is no less than a big gift for Western Indore. There is not a single auditorium in this part. Rs 25 crore has been spent in this project. This center is being converted into a museum being built in the name of Lata Mangeshkar. Studio, art gallery, small auditorium are being built.
New Indore will be visible in next two-three years
The complexion of this area will change with the construction of a convention center with a capacity of 10 thousand, a bridge at Lavkush intersection, a double decker bridge from Banganga to Saver Road. A completely new city like a hi-tech city is going to be seen here. Both the bridges will be ready in the next two years.
