With the new National Convention Centre now built in the Capital of Port Vila and handed over to Vanuatuan control, the small Pacific nation of Vanuatu has been provided with a venue that will attract many inbound travellers.
The increase in visitors should begin soon, and all providers of tourism services – including transport, accommodation, restaurants, sight-seeing and sporting services – stand to benefit.
The convention centre has been designed specifically for the island following the Vanuatu flag in a ‘Y’ shape. It holds a 1,000 seat auditorium, 200 press conference spaces, and a restaurant with kitchen facility able to cater for 600. Also there are 4 side meeting rooms and a VIP room. The Prime Minister of Vanuatu, Charlot Salwai has rightly acknowledged that this convention centre would now bring more International meetings to Vanuatu’s main island of Efate.
