Venue Overview


Established in 1992 (25 August 1992), we have more than twenty nine 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 30,000 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.
