venue overview


Venue Overview


Established in 1992 (25 August 1992), we have more than twenty two years experience of hosting events for some of the world’s biggest movers and shakers. Our premises were originally designed to accommodate 62 heads of state and their delegations for the 10th Non-Aligned Movement Summit in 1992. Since then, we have kept abreast of events and communications technology developments, delivering seamless start-to-finish service.

The Balai Sidang Jakarta Convention Center spans around 120,000 sqm and comprises a round theater-style hall (Plenary Hall), two exhibition halls (Exhibition Hall A & B), an Assembly Hall, a banqueting hall (Cendrawasih Room), a spacious main lobby and atmospheric lower lobby, VIP rooms and lounges, and ten further meeting rooms which can be configured to match specific event requirements. The Balai Sidang Jakarta Convention Center also has a business center to support your meetings. Our bonded warehouse facilitates the fast customs clearance of temporarily imported goods. An independent 6,000 space car park is located immediately in front of the convention center, and a selection of mid- to high-range hotels are within walking or short driving distance.


Exhibition Halls

We have two exhibition halls, each with their own 1,000 sqm lobbies and access points. Both halls have a ceiling height of nine meters, and are equipped with telephone and communication outlets, audio visual points, single and 3-phase power sources, and floor box access to electricity, phone lines, and water, drainage and compressed air on request. Trucks have direct access to both halls for easy loading.

Exhibition Hall B spans 6,075 sqm, with a floor load of 1,500 kg/sqm, and a distribution frame able to handle up to 500 pairs of telephone lines. The two halls can be connected through a 450-sqm corridor giving a combined exhibition space of 9,585 sqm.
