Baku Congress Center
The Baku Congress Center is a multifunctional building with clearly structured but flexible rooms and spacious public areas covered by a shared, elegantly curved shell. The heart of this international conference center is the auditorium for 3,500 visitors that is flanked by 15 conference rooms, registration center, offices, foyer/expo space, media center, café, back-of-house and public square. Size: 30,000 m2.
The auditorium can be used for many purposes, thanks to its flexible seating and rolling floor systems: for conferences or symposiums, trade shows and exhibitions, as a theater, for banquets, or divided by curtains and mobile partitions for several simultaneous events. The office wing and the media center on the upper floor can be accessed through the main foyer and separate entrances. Several ramps and elevators give visitors barrier-free access to the foyer, auditorium, conference rooms and office spaces.
Heydar Aliyev Center
The Heydar Aliyev Center is a 57,500 m2 building complex in Baku, Azerbaijan designed by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid and noted for its distinctive architecture and flowing, curved style that eschews sharp angles. The Center houses a main hall (auditorium), a gallery hall and a museum. Located close to the city center, the site plays a pivotal role in the redevelopment of Baku. Lunches during the 41st World Scout Conference will be held in the Heydar Aliyev Center. Halal, vegetarian, kosher and non-gluten meals will be provided during the lunches.
