Showcasing one of the most advanced convention center facilities in the world, the ARC Middle East Symposium organized a pre-event tour of the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC). The four massive Skyfold walls, 78m long x 8m high were the center’s most impressive attraction!
Over 50 international architects and suppliers attended the tour of the OCEC to familiarize themselves with the latest technology and materials used for the construction of this facility. The tour was conducted by the General Manager and the Operations Manager of the Convention Center, who were happy to answer all the questions related to the operation and advantages of using the Skyfold wall system in their facility. We heard a lot of ‘oohs!’ and ‘aahhs!’ as they watched the huge wall move up and down – just the reaction we were waiting for.
