New opportunities IEC "Ekaterinburg-Expo"

Project concept

The project envisages the formation of a single architectural ensemble consisting of the existing exhibition halls and the new building of the Congress Center as a central element.

The congress center solves the problem of expanding Yekaterinburg-Expo’s capabilities. Multifunctional transformable hall will allow to hold large-scale public events in various formats. The lobby of the center can also be used for various exhibitions, presentations and festive events. The internal architecture of the building unites all public areas of the complex.
