Venue for G-20 Summit 2023
Set to be a new landmark in New Delhi and the venue for the G-20 Summit in 2023, IECC, located in the Pragati Maidan Exhibition Complex, will be 120 metres wide, 185 metres long, and 32 metres high, spread across approximately 50,000 sqm. It will boast a 7000-seat plenary hall, a 3000-seat amphitheater for cultural performances, 600- and 900-seat auditoriums, 22 meeting rooms, as well as special areas for dignitaries and VIPs on 50,000 sqm. The whole complex comprises a total of 11 modern exhibition halls.
Anti-vibration technology at IECC
The technology of the Austrian anti-vibration expert Getzner Werkstoffe will minimize structure-borne noise and improve comfort in the convention centre. On approximately 6,000 sqm, the Getzner specialists have installed their Acoustic Floor Mat 26 – a 3D-profiled, highly resilient form of impact noise insulation based on a combination of polyurethane and cork. “The AFM 26 sheets are used as a highly efficient under screed resilient layer. The speciality of this product is its outstanding and lifelong noise protection. It is free from harmful plasticizers that affect interior air quality. It effectively reduces impact noise, is resistant to high loads, and is easy to install and handle with a low installation height,” informs Ameya Naik, Sales Manager, Getzner India. The product is made entirely from recycled raw materials, which reduces the carbon footprint to a minimum.
Along with the Acoustic Floor Mats, Getzner has installed more than 12,000 anti-vibration mountings for elastic decoupling of walls and ceilings. “With a natural frequency of less than 10 Hz, these hangers help to reduce noise transmission even in the low frequency range,” says Naik. Getzner also offers customised solutions to meet different building acoustics requirements.
The Pragati Maidan Exhibition Complex in the heart of New Delhi, managed by the India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO), is the largest exhibition centre in India both in terms of exhibition space (65,000 sqm) and the number of events held – approximately 90 every year! To make the Pragati Maidan Complex a globally competitive location, it requires improved capacity and state-of-the-art facilities. This is the vision behind the redevelopment of the facility and the construction of IECC.
