The modernising of Prague Congress Centre has entered its second phase after workers moved in to renovate the interior and improve the venue’s technological infrastructure.

Following the ‘greening’ of the building in early Spring  - which included the installation of new energy-efficient heating and cooling systems – focus has now turned to new AV technologies, an advanced navigation system, and full-area fast internet connection.

Sales and marketing director Lenka Žlebková said: "We care about the satisfaction of our clients, the organizers of major congresses. We are not able to change the building itself too much, but we can upgrade the facilities and provided services.

“This is our main task until the beginning of November, when the prestigious ICCA Congress takes place in Prague Congress Centre. We want to turn the PCC into a place where congresses and conferences with the highest demands on technology can be held.

“We are aiming for a satisfied participant who will want to come back again. We want the delegates of big congresses and conferences to be instantly and without difficulty able to find their way through the building with the help of a mobile phone application which will also provide them with all necessary information on actual time."

Renovations are under way in corridors and foyers, as well as in the two largest halls – the Congress Hall and the Forum Hall  - where floors are being refurbished, furniture newly upholstered, scenic and classical lighting as well as high-tech AV installed, ceilings and wood cladding in the corridors refurbished, toilets renovated.

On the ground floor near the main entrance a new information and registration desk will be build. The refurbishment will of course touch the facade.

In November, the PCC will welcome the ICCA Congress, where members of the International Congress and Convention Association will be able to cast an eye over the refit.

However, the adjustments are not just on the surface. Approximately 180 Wi-Fi points and 2,000 data slots will be installed throughout the building in the weeks ahead.
