Our conference venue, Beijing International Convention Center (BICC), is an all-in-one convention service provider that specializes in hosting high-profile national and international events. BICC includes 41 meeting rooms and conference halls and 5,000 square meters of exhibition space. BICC is also attached to a four-star hotel, the Beijing Continental Grand Hotel (BCGH), which is a white building of 13 floors with 527 rooms that meet international standards and is equipped with advanced facilities and technologies. In the restaurants, you can experience typical Chinese cuisines of Sichuan, Guangdong, Shandong, Jiangsu and Royal style. Genuine western food is also available there.

Both BICC and BCGH are located along the Fourth Ring Road, within walking distance of the development zone for the 2008 Olympics Games, popular shopping centers, entertainments hotspots, restaurants and shopping facilities. They are only a 30-minute drive from the Beijing Capital International Airport and some key Beijing historical sites. More information on BICC and the BCGH can be found at
