The Riga Exhibition Centre is one of the largest in the northern region of Eastern Europe and is situated in Kipsala, also known as Kip Island, which is located at the heart of the Latvian capital. The Exhibition Centre currently houses two large exhibition halls, conference rooms and meeting rooms, and has recently announced plans to further expand its facilities. 

The Riga Exhibition Centre

The Riga Expo Centre is looking for an iconic addition to its already well-established complex, and as such will be considering all winning designs in the Kip Island Auditorium architecture competition. For the additions to their building, the Riga Expo Centre are looking to house an auditorium, additional conference rooms, as well as a new exhibition hall.

The new complex would need to be integrated with the existing complex and act as the new iconic image for the Riga Expo Centre. Winning designs will need to show off the structure’s potential to be the leading exhibition hall in the entire region, and be in keeping with the exciting city in which it is located. As the unofficial capital of the Baltic states, Riga is a vibrant and busy city, with one of the largest airports in the region, as well as one of the largest seaports. 

The Riga Expo Centre have committed to consider all winning designs for construction, and the winning designs will be exhibited within the Expo Centre itself in the Spring of 2017.
