According to Delta Holding, the reconstruction of the largest congress centre in the country, Sava Centre in Belgrade, should start soon.
The reconstructed Centre will retain its purpose, appearance, architectural value and everything that makes it a monument of culture, it was announced on the Centre’s official Facebook page.
The reconstruction of the Sava Centre was assigned to the Centroprojekt Company from Belgrade, after the company won at an international tender among 14 companies, while Gaining Edge, a company that specialises in congress activities, was hired as a consultant.
As previously announced, the Centre will be closed during the renovation works, and the reconstruction is supposed to be finished by late 2023. A total of 80 million euros will be spent on renovations.
The plan is to maintain the current 16,000 square metres of commercial space and all the halls will be renovated and adapted to the standards of modern conference tourism. Upon completion, the building will be energy efficient, have a completely new façade so that there will be more natural light in the building, as well as new heating and cooling systems. The project foresees that the congress centre will be equipped with the latest technology.
Delta Holding purchased the Sava Centre from the City of Belgrade at a starting price of EUR 17.5 million. The sale of the largest congress centre in Serbia took place on 9 November 2020, via a public tender. The tender stipulated that the winners had to invest at least EUR 50 million in the Centre over the period of five years and that the facility should not change its core purpose.
