The new Salvador Convention Center will open in 2020 to accommodate large-scale meetings and events. The venue includes a 15,000-sqm functional building and a 12,000-sqm outdoor space with a capacity to host up to 20,000 attendees. Extensive parking area, over 40 meeting rooms for 50 to 800 people, eight multipurpose halls, restaurants and other seafront facilities are also part of the complex. GL events was awarded a 25-year management concession by the municipality of Salvador de Bahia (Brazil) to operate this new venue. Salvador is Brazil's fourth most populous city, the largest city in northeast Brazil and historically the country's third business tourism destination after São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The city is fully equipped with infrastructure to host large-sized conventions and events, including a hotel capacity of 20,000 rooms and an airport with a capacity for 12 million passengers per year.
