Casablanca Gears Up for its New Congress and Exhibition Center

Casablanca, 18th October 2024

Authorities of the Region Casablanca-Settat and the City of Casablanca have given the green light for a historic transformation. Casablanca's Exhibition Fair will be reimagined into a world-class Congress and Exhibition Center, heralding a new era for MICE tourism in the region.

Spanning a total area of 20,000 sq. meters, the "Casablanca Congress & Exhibition Center" will comprise:

  • 5,940 sq. meters dedicated to the creation of a state-of-the-art congress center, capable of accommodating up to 2,000 participants
  • 11,880 sq. meters of exhibition space, offering a versatile venue for a variety of events and exhibitions

The site, where the majestic edifice will retain its exterior architecture, enjoys an enchanting environment and easy access via wide thoroughfares. It is situated opposite the Hassan II Mosque, surrounded by extensive landscaped spaces, with the Atlantic Ocean and its verdant promenade as a backdrop.

As a thriving international metropolis, Casablanca will be poised to host its first major events starting in the first semester of 2025!

For further insights into this groundbreaking project and additional information, we invite you to request an interview with the Casablanca Settat Regional Tourism Council.
