About the venue

Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center

Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center (RICEC) is one of the facilities owned by Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It is allocated for National & International trade Exhibitions, Conventions and Other Economical Events.

RICEC was constructed on several phases, included administrative, technical, and marketing studies and physical visits.

The land area is 189,000 square meters (more than 2.000.000 square feet) having a rectangular shape extending with a slight deviation from North to South. RICEC was designed to resemble the physical structure of the land (in length). RICEC building design with its ‘wave-form’ roof and distinctive feature, is one of the architectural landmarks of Riyadh City.
